What we didn't realize before going here is that this is a chain restaurant. The food tasted like chain food. It wasn't good at all. I got the steal and ale pie and the meat in it was ice cold. It tasted processed and as if they had just pulled it out of the freezer and thrown it in the... More

It was our first visit to this pub and we were not disappointed. The dark paneling, cozy sitting, and warmth from the fireplace set the tone for an authentic pub experience. There are tables and booths around the outside with high top tables in the bar area. The large comfortable bar is in the middle of the restaurant. The service... More

Great selection of beers. Sat at bar until rest of group showed up. Joey the bartender is funny and quick with service. Got to booth and waiter Nathaniel was right on top of things. Suggest the buffalo chicken dip, tasty! All the main course dishes from hamburgers to cob salad to steak pie were great! Great service, good people, recommend... More

My first visit. I really enjoyed this restaurant. The beer is cold and good. The menu has plenty of offerings. The service is friendly. Even turning up the heat because we were all cold sitting by a big window. There is a fireplace if you're fortunate enough to sit there. I had chicken pot pie. There was four in our... More

A recent lunch time visit to this busy pub restaurant was very pleasant despite the fairly loud and unnecessary background 'music'. There are tables and booths around the perimeter of the place as well as a large bar with seats all around serving drinks and food too. The selection of draught beers is incredible and our waiter was able to... More

While visiting my son in NH, he suggested that we go to this restaurant. This has been his favorite for years. My wife and I have gone there several times before with good reviews. This time it was different. The atmosphere was dated and the service was very slow. The food was served hot but we were not served together.... More

There were 6 of us for an early dinner on Black Friday. Table was in the corner of the room which was nice. Appetizers were $5 for happy hour - we ordered sausage rolls, humus, and wings for an appetizer. All were delicious. We ordered dinner - shepherds pie was delicious and tasty. Fish and chips were a huge portion... More

Had some drinks with my brother here since he works nearby. Nice place. They made a good Captain and coke. We sat at the bar and just got drinks, so I cannot say much about the food, though the other people at the bar eating seemed pleased. Music was a bit loud, and not really my taste.

The British Beer Company offers an excellent selection of draft beers and upscale bar food.. The Beef Tenderloin Tips are a good choice. Portions were fair, not overwhelming and wait staff was attentive. Not the best brew pub but you could do much worse.

The worst service, ever. I went there with a group of 10 folks for a work dinner. Our waitress started solid but then vanished. Without exaggeration we were sitting maybe 10 feet from the bar but drinks took 15 minutes every time if we even got them. At one point the manager came out, gave us a few drinks, and... More
