McDonald's to Serve English Pub Burgers: Is Fillet of Fish and Chips Next?

The new McPub...Wonder if they'll be a McGuiness to go with it???
Burger Business has reported that a new McDonald's English-style pub burger is in the works.

The English Pub Burger is an Angus third-pound burger, garnished with hickory-smoked bacon, white cheddar and American cheeses, grilled onions, steak sauce, and smoky Dijon mustard sauce on an artisan roll.

The burger is set to be tested in the Midwest. No word yet whether the English Pub Burger will be hitting South Florida's McDonald'ses anytime soon.

The slogan on the American ad campaign (via tray liner) says the burger is so good, you'll be gobsmacked (that's British slang for "astounded," but in McDonald's case, "freaked out" is just as good).

We're hoping this starts a completely new era for McDonald's, which has a slightly tired menu (I mean, how many people actually admit to eating there?)

How about a McFillet of Fish and Chips? Or a McCurry Chicken Sandwich? Or a warm, crisp mincemeat pie in a box? We think the combination of bland English pub food and bland bad McDonald's is a match that's been a long time in the making.

Oh you yanks don't know a thing about English pub grub.  Many of the Michelin stars in England are awarded to pub restaurants.  As Davidspangooly said, "American "cheese" - end of argument.

English cuisine is notoriously bad so how much worse could the McDonalds version be?

That doesn't sound like any burger I've ever eaten in a pub.

We were forewarned not to order beef in London, due to the low quality. So my buddy found out firsthand how bad a burger can be. I stayed with fish n chips and it is true that British food is not that great...especially pub fare. Nobody goes on a culinary adventure to Britain for British food.....nobody! You eat Indian or Thai while there.

Doesn't McD's know this????

Defender of Brit pub food here! It's the best if you know where to go, nothing bland about it. The best fish and chips are made by the Chinese who know a thing or two about light batter, ha.  Can't wait to try.
