Carry On has a good sense of humor about itself, from mini figurines of the royal family to their t-shirts and Union Jack paraphernalia, but the main draw here is serious British snacking. Biscuits like McVitie's Digestives, cereals like Weetabix and drinks (like my particular favorite blackcurrant syrup for mixing, Ribena) are available online or at the store.They also have all the usual boxed tea like PG Tips and Tetley, as well as their own excellent Tea & Sympathy teas.
A one-stop-shop for Brit food and tchotchkes. – Spawned from its parent restaurant next door--Tea & Sympathy--Carry On not only serves nearly 20 different types of teas (from apple to typhoo), it also delivers a wide selection of thoroughly un-dainty British pub favorites: shepherd's pie; macaroni and cheese made with English farmhouse cheese; scotch eggs (hard boiled eggs wrapped in cumberland sausage); and even bangers and mash (a pair thick sausage links, smothered in a tasty roasted onion gravy and packed next to a mound of mashed potatoes).
Should you consult the menu, you will notice a number of Britishisms, such as Heinz tomato soup, Heinz baked beans and a selection of puddings like sherry trifle "all served with hot custard or whipped cream." Should you order a roast beef or egg salad-and-watercress sandwich, it is requested that you let them know "if you prefer mayonnaise, salad cream, HP sauce or branston pickle." Ketchup, I'm afraid, is not an option.
Carry On also sells enough Brit memorabilia to satisfy both nostalgic ex-pats and Anglophilic Americans--everything from video copies of "Eastenders" to Royal Family playing cards.
Yes, they got Tea... – and a lot of british products, but they could be so rude!!! They should get a better staff. Try "Myers of Keswick", they are less pretentious.
