About

The British on North Quay in Douglas is a classic, yet modern city-style bar serving great food and drink with a distinctly British feel, however, the real jewel in the crown is the function room on the first floor.

Opened late 2012, The British Embassy is a must for Sunday Lunch with traditional roast beef carved at your table in luxurious, comfortable surroundings with great views across Douglas harbour.

Served every Sunday from 12 noon to 4pm you can choose from a selection of traditional British and Manx food, locally sourced whenever possible.

Bookings are advised, but not essential as walk-ins are always welcome.

The British Embassy is also available for private hire. With a capacity of 80, they can create bespoke packages suited to all requirements and budgets.
