The British Beer Company was a fun and tasty visit. The atmosphere is English pub. The menu has a good variety of traditional English dishes, whose strength is stick-to-your-ribs heartiness rather than subtle haute cuisine. For starters we tried home made chips ($4) and scotch eggs ($9). The chips were excellent; so were eggs. Two came, each wrapped in andouille... More

Lovely atmosphere - loved the dark interior and enclosed booths - a nice change from all the "Cape Cod" look restaurants we dined at for the rest of the week. Food was good. My friends got the Bourban steak on the waitresses recommendation and both loved it. I got a turkey pasty. It was a bit " heavy" when I... More

As Hyannis residents the BBC is one of my husband's and my favorite restaurants for lunch. Great atmosphere and servers are friendly and efficient. The chowder is one of the best we have ever had. On this visit both of us had the fish & chips served with fries, onion rings and coleslaw. The portions are large. Neither of us... More

We arrived and were told they take your name and phone number and call you when your table is ready: a really archaic way of doing those. Anyway, we waited and waited and found out that the Natalie the hostess was having a clueless moment and wrote our number down incorrect. Instead of seating us immediately they put our name... More

Because it was lunch time and we were hungry and this restaurant was right there in front of us we chose it! and are we glad.......it is so like an English pub......the booths were enclosed on all three sides so you had a perfectly private spot......the wait staff was both friendly and helpful but it was the food that we...

We were hungry and tired and thirsty after the long drive into the Cape for the beginning of our vacation. Dropped off our bags at the house we were staying at, drove into Hyannis, and found parking here. No wait (mid-afternoon) and quick service for our drinks, and then our meals. Good enough that we almost ate here again one... More

Hyannis was PACKED with visitors and there was also a free concert going on across the street. Parking was HORRIBLE (not the fault of the restaurant). Yet: we had a party of ten and we were served promptly and efficiently--and the food was very, very good.

We ate at the British Beer Company after an afternoon wandering about Hyannis. The restaurant was busy, and the hostess looked a bit flustered. But she quoted this family of 4 a half hour wait, and we were seated almost exactly half an hour later. Our server was energetic and friendly. The beer list was extensive, and had a decent... More
