A word from Pub Burgundy Lion
The word pub is derived from the term public house. A public house was traditionally a meeting spot that could serve as a center for the community as much as the local church. With Burgundy Lion, we immerse ourselves in the community and re-create that sense of comfort but with a modern twist. The concept behind the design and feel of Burgundy Lion is to blend a traditional British pub with a modern lounge bar and to offer a unique twist on British pub cuisine. Burgundy Lion is located in Little Burgundy, an old working class neighborhood in Montreal, steeped in history. Since the early 90"s, Little Burgundy has enjoyed a re-birth as young professionals are taking advantage of its renewed sense of community. Burgundy Lion is not a "traditional" pub by Montreal standards. It provides a higher quality product in food, drink, service, and ambiance than other Montreal pubs.

    Scheduled a business brunch with a customer on Thanksgiving Day, and they were actually open. They had a lovely shortened Brunch menu, and lots of beverage choices in the Single Malt that we both enjoy. Friendly waitstaff, attention to our needs. Would go again!

    I know its Sunday brunch and busy but taking unfinished beer and food off the table and dropping the check on the table unprompted is a little over the top. Decided my next beer was somewhere else at that moment.

    Le seul endroit à Montréal que je connaisse où on vous sert le vrai déjeuner anglais. Des crumpets, bien sûr, mais aussi le bacon en bloc (et non en tranches), champignons, boudin, etc. Même le hareng fumé est disponible. Et quand il fait beau, une petite salle extérieure, entourée de 4 murs de briques, mais sans plafond, est illuminée par le soleil du matin et tous les convives y sont à l'abri du vent.

    Went to dinner with a friend who is a senior. I had roast beef, he had salmon. Both of us enjoyed our vegetables way too much! meals were great though not piping hot. Fun ambience, lots of action, found it too loud for our group. U don't want to propose here but the menu was fun and the food good. Fun energetic ambiance and the outdoor terasse looked really nice though we were seated indoors. I really liked the lemonade with vodka/limonchello. The Yorkshire pudding honestly was not like my grandmothers but the meal overall was yummy, strawberry rhubarb crumble was excellent. The cider isn't on the wine list but it's a good way to get a drink without spending a fortune!

    Brunch was great: the menu was varied and unique and the food itself was very tasty. Great decor and our waitress was very nice. My only complaint is that some of the staff seemed stressed and the beans were not great (too sweat and a bit too hard).

    Overall the food was great and our waitress was really nice. The place has great ambiance, an interesting menu, good beer and great selection of whisky. Fish and chips were great and so was the vegetarian samosa's and vegetable curry. However, something went wrong in the kitchen and our food never came, when I asked our waitress she went to check and although there was a mix up it was fixed really quickly. Without asking the bar paid our beers which was really nice of them to do. I would go back/recommend the place if you're in the neighborhood because despite the hiccup we still had a great evening :)

    On sait qu'au Burgundy Lion il n'y aura pas de surprise désagréable. On y va pour retrouver l'atmosphère et la nourriture typiques de ce que l'on se remémore de certains restaurants et pubs de l'Angleterre et on n'est pas déçu. Le menu varie peu et c'est ce à quoi on s'attend et ce que l'on veut.

    While food may not be the most exquisite at the Burgundy Lion, I love going there because the service is great and the ambience is perfect for a casual afternoon or night out with friends. They have a great selection of drinks at decent prices, so there's for sure a drink for everyone. Food is slightly overpriced for what it is, so I would normally not go out of my way to have dinner there. As a bar though, it's one of my favourites in Montreal.

    The food was great. I had the bubble and squeak, and shared a colonel rabbit with mac and cheese as well as the strawberry rhubarb crumble. The rabbit was good but nothing too exceptional. The brunch was good, but also like any other brunch places. I really liked the warm and creamy strawberry rhubarb crumble though, was very well done.

    The staff were very accommodating for our birthday party group. They let us bring our own cake, and provided a knife, etc. However, the space felt a bit cramped for 7 people. Maybe because the restaurant was full when we arrived (Saturday lunch). As for the food, I expected better quality overall. Some items were so-so (fish & chips, tea sandwiches, etc), others were very good (scotch egg, etc). We did have a good time though, and had fun tasting some British food we've never had before. The guys appreciated the sports channel...

    Ce pub est pour nous, en particulier le matin, l'occasion d'aller déjeuner à Londres. Des crumpets, des œufs frits, du boudin (blood pudding) des toasts frites, tout est disponible. Le service y est toujours courtois, amical. Et le décor vous rappelle constamment que, par une magie potteresque, vous avez quitté Montréal pour vous retrouver chez Lilibeth... Le soir, c'´est le Fish ´n Chips, purée de pois... Match de soccer à la télé, fans bruyants...c'est l'Holligan en vous qui risque de se réveiller. Yes, indeed!

The food was excellent, service was friendly but not overly intrusive and the timing was perfect. I will definitely return and encourage others to do the same.

    I've been to the Burgundy Lion in the evening many times. On this occasion, having booked a table I was disappointed to be sat in a drafty corridor despite many tables being available in the main restaurant. The food was good, my steak frites particularly so. Service was disappointing, the waiters were polite but did only the minimum; water was not replenished and we had to ask for coffee when the bill was brought unprompted. I know you can do better BL!

    Love this restaurant for brunch. The options are fantastic and the staff are friendly, however, they are not always attentive so sometimes it took a while to get a refill of coffee/water or a request for an additional food item. If the service could be improved my rating for service would be upped from fair to good or very good.

    J'ai trouvé que le burgundy lion est un endroit où le menu n'est pas renversant sur papier, mais tout de même bien exécuté... La bière en fût est offerte en plusieurs choix... Correct, rien de fine microbrasserie.. si vous avez envie de gôuter un menu semblable, les proprios ont deux restaurants (fish n brit) qui à mon avis est le même choix, pour un souper sur le pouce et moins cher... Bref connaissant le fish n'brit je m'attendais à plus du burgundy... On y va plutôt pour boire un verre et manger des bouchees d'accras.,
