British
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.

We went for the US vs Netherlands women's soccer final, so we were expecting - and hoping! - for an energetic crowd. We were not disappointed :) I requested a table with TV viewing in my reservation, and was very pleased to be seated upstairs in a great location.

The service was slow and spotty. I do not fault our waitress at all, who was doing admirably with a busy resto. But management should perhaps consider staffing more wait staff up top for large occasions like this. We waited about 15 minutes to get menus, then another 15 before coffee and water were brought over. Luckily we had the game to keep our attention away from our hungry bellies :) Once it came, the food was delicious - the Rarebit was awesome! The clamato juice in the caesar was a little thin, but otherwise good. I've been to Burgundy Lion before - I live in Montreal - and would definitely go again for a morning sports event.

The French fried were terrible..... really disgusting
We were a party of 4; none of us could eat the fries......it appeared to us as if they had been cooked in old old grease and left to become soggy over several hours.
Shameful.
We will not be returning and will not be recommending this restaurant/pub.


The fish and the steak was ok.

I had the burger and my friend had the fish & chips and honestly I wish I could have had both. The burgers was big but not messy. The fries were great. The place is nice and a great option if you're going to watch a show at the Corona Theatre that is just next door. Really cool area too.

The only thing that was surprising was the choice of table we were assigned. Even though most of the tables were empty, it felt like the worse table next to the stairs was assigned to us.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé l’ambiance,le service, la nourriture et la proximité du théâtre Corona.
Nourriture de pub honnête. Fish and chips et salmon Rushdie très apprécié sans compter le délicieux dessert « Caramel collant ».
Le service était super étant donné que nous allions à un concert à 19h. Avions réservé à 17h et avons eu tout le temps nécessaire. Nous le recommandons sans réserve.

Way too loud and as a group of 8 the staff should have been sensible enough to offer seating somewhere else. Food was ok but nothing to get excited with. Portion were way too big, what a waste! I would not return. But if you like huge portion, greasy food and noise level so loud that you can’t hear yourself think then that’s the place to go. Avoid if you want a nice and somehow relaxing Sunday brunch. This is not the place to go

We love this place. It’s bustling, warm, inviting and the food is reliably good. The menu has a wide range of choices, plus daily specials. The fish and chips are great, the daily soup offerings savoury and perfect winter comfort food. They do an unctuous lamb shank and the very best portobello burger ever, oozing with cheesy goodness and perfectly grilled mushrooms. Their crab cakes are delicious in the summer months. They do fine fresh salads as well, for those who want lighter fare. It’s absolutely the go to spot for soccer lovers and people love to party here. Thus that boisterous noise level. Their staff is incredibly accommodating and helpful and the bar scene is definitely lively. Great spot!

Had a Scotch egg and Welshman's Bride, very delicious. My daughter had the Orkney Smorgasbord and a Leo cocktail which she also found delicious. Will return soon to try other dishes. Wish they had more choices for English beer, but that seems to be a problem for all 'pubs' in Montreal
