Reviews of British Open Pub

Carol posted on 03/18/2015

We were extremely disappointed on the wait time on St. Patrick's Day. The wait time was one thing but the excuses were something else. We arrived at 4:30 PM and finally had to split our party to be seated at 7 PM. We were told more than once that the party in your large room was about to leave but it never happened. I realize you cannot ask people to leave but there should be a method for moving to another location to party. Many people come there to dine, as we did. Your planning seems to be very poor for accommodating the many people that stood out in front of your new location waiting to be seated merely to eat. It will be awhile before we come again, if ever.

My husband and I have been there quite a few times as we are local. We love the food there and the service. I especially love the liver and onions as my husband will not cook them at home. He gets the bangers and mash and loves it. I would recommend the Pub to all my friends.

Every tome I visit the British Open Pub I am a happy customer whatever I order. The service is very friendly and the food is excellent.<br /> I am a snowbird and can't wait every year to come and eat here.<br /> Thanks.

Food and service and staff very good in main dining rm. Used to go often, to bar, eat, have a few. Better to eat in main dining. Not very good at bar. Locals are favored. Andrea (Ms Super bartender)is the exception. Owner is great but she is busy, but will always take time to talk to you. Great person making it work in spite. Tough business, but this one is worth a try.

I brought my 76 year young mother there on Sunday evening April 3, 2011.<br /> <br /> What a mistake!!<br /> <br /> The hostess seated four people that had arrived just ahead of us near the door and then asked how many in our party, we had 2 as did the party behind us.<br /> <br /> We were told it would be a 20 minute wait. When I asked about the empty booth 4 tables away we were told that it was for parties of 4 or more. As I looked around I noticed there were only 3 parties of 2.<br /> <br /> I suggested that we had sat there before and there were no larger parties here waiting, to no avail.<br /> <br /> The couple behind us were having a conversation with my mother and just shaking their heads in disbelief.<br /> <br /> So being the attentive son, I went to the bar and asked for a manager. The bartender said he would have to do, uh oh, and he looked into it only to say that there would have to be 4 people in our party to sit at the empty table. 3 Parties of 2 waiting and this was their best.<br /> <br /> We were all aghast at the cavalier attitude of this restaurant. After all we were paying for dinner not them and apparently some tables are off limits!<br /> <br /> I told the bartender rather than wait for a table when one was clearly available that we had sat at before we would dine elsewhere. <br /> <br /> The response was OK and have a good evening. We did!!<br /> <br /> The cavalier attitude displayed this night was a topic of conversation at the restaurant we did dine in and they thanked the owners of the British Pub for their poor customer service. They will be a topic of conversation everywhere I go and to anyone that will listen.<br /> <br /> They have lost 2 patrons that dine out separately and together 5-6 times each week. <br /> <br /> Perhaps they will learn what a good customer experience is and I bet they are some of the first to complain that business isn't what it could be. <br /> <br /> British Pub you wn

We enjoyed our second visit to the Pub.The fish and chips were quite good and not greasy as reported in a previous review. The people we were with had Prime Rib and both thought it was excellent. The service has been superb on both visits. We did not like the Irish Coffee and were sorry we ordered it. We will be visiting again.

Our family has been going to the Pub for years. Everything that we have tried has been very good. The Chicken Wellington is fantastic. All of the staff are very courteous and help make your dining experience a great one.

My husband and I have been going there for a number of years and we bring all our friends, The food is about as authentic as it could get and is extremely flavorful. Atmosphere is great and the servers and Manager are attentive and efficient. Shepherd's Pie is tasty and flavorful as is the fish and chips. We have tried almost everything on the menu (including the liver and onions) and have never been disappointed. Try some of their authentic desserts. They are great! Highly recommended.

Visited 2009 for appetizers, was not good, but thinking it might have been an off night we tried again this year (June 2010). My husband had Cornish Pastie and I had Fish & Chips, both the entrees were incredibly greasy and both vegetable and mashed potatoes were bland and tasteless. In addition the air conditioning was almost non exist ant (on a 90 deg.evening) On the plus side, the service was very good, the server was pleasant and the atmosphere for a Pub/restaurant very good, but that does not make up for the bad food, we will not be giving them another try..
