Fish & chips & a black & tan

I had the fish and chips. Unless you're a big eater or sharing, order one piece of fish because it's big. The chips are English style and also very good. My wife had the turkey burger which was also very good (with the English chips). Good English/Irish beer. If you eat outside you can bring your... read more

I am somewhat new to enjoying hockey games, and even newer to watching them in a bar. This year I decided I wanted to watch as many playoff games as I could even though the local favorite wasn't in the post-season. So my first time out, I watched at Britannia Arms in the Capitola Village. They have several televisions so... More

On our way home from our weekend in Carmel, we stopped at our favorite spot in Capitola, Britannia Arms, and had our favorite menu item - BLT. My husband and I discovered this little jewel with a perfect seascape about three years ago and we have returned each and every time we are on the Monterey Peninsula for our favorite... More

I love England. I love to surf. I love a great Briish pint. I love Premeir League football. This is my heaven. Enough said.

The have the NFL ticket and 5 TVs. Talk to the manager early on so he can turn one of them to your game. They watch the Premier League Football (soccer) matches, what a splendid place to view one of them. This is a classic British pub on the West Coast. Just imagine England with some sun. The staff is... More

We ate here with a group of 7 Saturday night for my husband's birthday. It was a jolly and noisy place (or was that just us!). We ordered a variety of food and the reviews were mixed. I had a pasty and gave it about a 2. The dough was thick and heavy and slightly burned. The filling was just... More

This is my fav local meat and potatoes meal. Hearty, stick to your ribs menu.. delish burgers, fish and chips, nice beer selection, bangers and mash, and screens screens screens! Love that I can watch football, soccer, baseball, hockey.. it's awesome! The service is excellent.

This is the second time we dined at the Britannia Arms and we will stop again and again to have their BLT. PLUS the people here are very friendly. We met a lovely mother and daughter and their dog, Chloe, on the patio and had a most wonderful visit.

A warm and inviting exterior with great atmosphere inside but poor food at high prices. We had two pieces of fish on fries, a French dip sandwich, and two tap glasses of beer for $48 before tip. The beef in the sandwich was too dried up to eat. The man at the next table had Irish stew served on a... More
