Our visit to the British Pub was a disappointment. We are new to the area and looking for some local restaurants to patronize as we enjoy going out to eat. Unfortunately, neither the food nor the service was very good. The atmosphere is ok (all booths), the train running around the ceiling is cute. When we were there, the restaurant... More

Great night out with friends. Fish and chips, pasties, cottage pie, and the awesome beef with button mushrooms and gravy under this HUGE puff Pastry! Everyone loved their meals. We'll go again!

Now this was an awesome dinner date. I ordered the fish (blackened) and chips and my mouth was watering when they set the plate down in front of me. Another person in our group ordered the Cottage Pierre. Now that was a pie. It was huge! Another savory dish. Service was great. The new location is nice. Decor is beautiful.... More

This restaurant is nearby and we eat here once in a while. The food is a change from the usual American/Italian fare on offer elsewhere. We live in Britain about 6 months of the year and although the British Pub food harks back to the sort of food served years ago rather than now it is homestyle and the corned... More

Never disappointed here at this serious step up from "bar food". Convenient location and warm setting makes one feel comfortable. Menu features A wide range of delicious entrees and sandwiches. Had the Fish and Chips with a side of creamy and fresh slaw. The Potato Chips are homemade and crispy. My wife had the Steak and Ale Pie with a... More

I wrote a glowing review about BOP’s liver and onions in Feb. 2016. I reordered them today for lunch and that part of the meal was wonderful. However, there was a peculiar flavor that I initially was suspecting was vinegar in the gravy. I didn’t say anything to our server, Erica, who did a splendid job throughout our entire lunch....

Everything is excellent at the British Open Pub. Food choices are very good, prices are too. Employees are friendly and knowledgeable about the wide variety of beer, whiskey and other drinks as well as the food. We have made it our "go to" place. And they remember your name!
