We stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner. The place was quite empty but we figured we would give it a try figuring the crowd would pick up. The hostess wanted to seat us at a certain table but my husband asked for the table by the window instead -- response: Rolling of eyes, a weary sigh, and "I guess... More

We were just looking for convenience to our hotel, a solid meal and a cold drink. The BBC provided all of those in a lively pub-like atmosphere. Fish and chips were very good, as well as the chicken tiki masala.

Manchester NH BBC is phenomenal! This one in Westford....eh? We sat at the bar----nachos LOOK incredible, but the cheese was already cold & waxy by the time they "dressed" them with toppings.....or do I thought. Burger & fries were also just barely luke warm---not the bartender's fault, just not brought out fast enough by food runners. Consistently mediocre. Thought we'd... More

Brit pub motif with so so menu - oddly, they are very proud of their pizza. Limited choice of British ales. Good lunch stop.

It is very close to the Hampton Inn we were staying at. Our server was very helpful explaining the multitude of beers and even brought three samples for my wife to choose from. My wife had the shepherds pie and I had the beef tips. Both were excellent.

We beat the rush on Mother's Day and was seated straighaway. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. There are 40 beers on the menu, albeit not all British as the name implies. The food is typical pub grub--burgers, sandwiches, salads, and a few British staples such as bangers and mash and steak and ale pie. Of the 4 meals we... More

What you'd expect of a chain pub, better marketed maybe and perhaps a better beer variety. Prices a bit higher than I'm used to paying for basic American food, portions a bit smaller. I usually go there as part of some employee event (going away) and I'm not big on their menu, so I'll usually have a beer and something... More

I wen twice in a week. The first time I was alone and had steak tips to die for. The second time I was with a bunch of folks and had a burger and a couple of beers. The food is good and the beer selection is huge. Probably the best eating spot in the area.

As a Brit, it was fun to see a "British" food place in MA. They had the style down quite well, with traditional wooden pub fixtures. The menu is obviously trying to please american diners as there is a lot of non-British stuff on there, but that is to be expected. Had the buffalo chicken dip to start which was... More
