Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a burger and fries at The British Arms Pub in Barrie (up to a $12.41 value, including HST).
The British Arms Pub replicates an English-style pub experience, with dark woods and warm hues surrounding visitors as they nosh juicy burgers handcrafted from half-pound patties. For the pub's flagship B.A. burger ($9.49), grill gurus tailor hand-formed ground beef to suit hand-sewn kaiser buns before accessorizing their creations with cheese or bacon ($0.99 each). More gussied-up variations include the swiss-and-mushroom burger ($10.99), with bacon and caramelized onions, and the Cajun BBQ burger ($10.99), which seals in taste-bud-scorching spices before tempering them with barbecue sauce, onion rings, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese. Though not included with this Groupon, diners can wash down protein patties with pints of imported brews straight from the British and Emerald Isles while keeping eyeballs occupied with the pub's flat-screen TVs and magic-lantern shows relating the Battle of Hastings.
