Staff tried, but the kitchen staff was overworked or incompetent. The beer was warm too, on a day when it was 30C. Well over an hour for the food to arrive. Card machine comes up with automatic 20 percent tip option, of the total bill including the tax ( for which nobody worked ), which is unacceptable. With so many... More

If you like English Style fish & chips this is the place, two for one Friday Special . large portions, light batter, fresh cut fry's, small salad, and great variety of draft beers, get there before 6:00pm or wait for a table. All reasonably priced

If you love fish and chips, this is the best place to eat. On Fridays, they serve a generous helping of fish and chips - TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. It is really delicious and worth going for, In the summer you can sit inside in the pub or they do have an outdoor patio and you sit outside... More

Great Pub Food here. There are many beers to choose from. The Bartender makes an amazing Ceasar drink. The menu offers something for everyone. We have never had a bad meal here.The only thing that I would reccomend, is that they do a little renovation inside? Spruce it up a bit. Other then that, this pub is really great. The... More

As a Brit, I have to say........this does not feel like a pub and it's certainly not British, despite the name!! It is dark, dirty and dingy and the food sucks! Sorry British Arms but you really need to step up your game if you are going to compete with other 'pubs' in the area!

Pretty much a normal pub. Good beer with great people! Just like any other pub, recommend going with friends. A nice, small atmosphere.
