Default Brampton, looking for a british store!

So I'm moving to Brampton in a few days and I'm looking for a British store to replace the one i currently use in London. Are there any recommendations? British style restaurant recommendations are welcome as well :-)

There are such stores in Orangeville and Guelph. Brampton, I dunno, it seems demographically improbable.

Why bother moving here then? If you must have your Brit stuff, there is a Brit store in Mississauga, Oakville and Stratford, St Catherine and Niagara-on-the-lake if you ever end up there

There are quite a few British and Irish pubs in Brampton. Here's one:

No British menu would be complete without a chicken curry!

Why not move here and also enjoy things you used to enjoy elsewhere as well?

It is called the best of both worlds.

For someone who doesn't see a need for British shops you certainly know where to find them all!

The above link for the chippy on Queen st is awesome. We stayed in the hotel across in our early weeks here and used that fish n chippy, I have yet to taste any better anywhere else. For that reason I put up with all the Scottish tack within....lol

So sorry.. Call me what you want. I have lived in the U.K all my life apart from 6 years in the Army and I can never understand why people will not let go of the U.K!! Why bother moving?????
I spent 6 months in he winter of 83-84 in Medicine Hat Alberta, I can tell you that the stunning steaks I ate, far outweighed any poxy British fish n chips! And I am allowed to voice that as a British citizen...

My girlfriend who's Canadian visited the UK with me in the summer and couldn't get over how good the fish a chips were. We also had fresh peas in a restaurant, you don't see that at steakhouses in Canada.
