Repeat customers, excellent place to eat, great wait staff, casual pub food and many types on beer on tap.

Food is good and service is good. The BBC experience is pretty consistent, so if you've tried one, you know exactly what to expect from all of them. Beer selection is reasonable. There's almost no way to avoid the TVs in this place, though -- Good if you're there to watch the game, bad if you're there for undistracted conversation.

Our son had an overnight so wee decided to try this place since we have driven by so many times yet never have visited. We had no reservations on a Friday and I called after 8PM about seating and they informed me that walking in would be a 10-15 minute wait...and it turned out to be 15. We were seated... More

Good place to stop in for a beer and casual pub food. Generous portions. Fairly empty when we visited, but I can imagine it gets a bit noisy later in the evening when it is full. Bar seating features comfortable booths as well as tables.

Authentic English pub? No, not really. Nice place to visit, decent food, fun atmosphere? Yes, certainly! My wife and I visit sporadically. Mostly for lunch when we are in the area shopping. But we've never had a bad meal there. The biggest challenge is getting seated. There is often a wait. Once seated there are an amazing number of beer,... More

Enjoyed my first time at this quaint English styled restaurant. We saw on high stools which I'm not a fan of but it added to the charm of the place. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We were able to sample beers before we made our decision as they had a lot of beers to choice from. I ate the... More

The bar is usually full anytime we visit. The service is not particularly fast and the food quality is average. The big attraction for us is the gluten free pizza.

I visited the British Beer Company for dinner and a couple beers before going to a Revolution Soccer Game. The restaurant had a wide variety of craft and imported beers. I had a chicken salad for dinner which was excellent. The only beer I had - twice - was a local vanilla porter from New Hampshire. The beer was very... More

While I am not a beer drinker, I really like this restaurant. The food, for a place that positions itself as a Beer Company (Bar) is always good. I've tried many items on the menu and haven't found one yet that I didn't like or think they didn't to a nice job preparing.

Good service, lively atmosphere with chain-food menu. Unique décor unless you've actually traveled and then this feels like the made up locations in Epcot. Overly dressed up to be an "English pub" Food is consistently good - service is solid
