British fare

Being a transplant from the UK, I'm always looking for things from home. The British Beer Works delivers a very good part of that. They have a good selection of British ales and lagers, with the food doing a fine job too. I selected a pint of Fullers ESP (extra special bitter) which was as good... read more

Great for Beer; very average food and the service is just dreadful. If you are goping in for drinks, that's fine but I would avoid the restaurant.

Locally called as 'BBC', is a good lively restaurant in Westford city. I had been here with my husband and a friend. Though we had to wait for 15mins to get our table but then wait was worth. The staff is very friendly, service is quick and sometimes there is also a live band playing. When we went in evening,... More

Went back to BBC to have dinner and found that the meal portion sizes have gotten very small. Also, paid 8.50 for a Hobgoblin Pint. If you are going to charge crazy high prices such as that, print them on the menu so people won't get sticker shock. Would not have ordered it had I known. Perhaps that was the... More

Well, there's a lot of American food at British Beer Company (Cobb salad, pulled pork, Buffalo chicken, Reuben sandwich, Southwest American food) and even some Greek salad and some Pizza. But, I just had to have the fish and chips. They were nice and crunchy and good. I had a nice Brit beer to go with my meal, and it... More

This is British fare the way it should have been years ago when they had a rep for bland food. Not so anymore! A bit rowdy at times, after all, it's a pub, but not bad and makes for an interesting atmosphere. Great service, and great beer.

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 do not enjoy submitting negative reviews, but, after Sunday last night’s experience at the British Beer Company in Westford, MA, we feel compelled to say something. Let’s start with being out of Smithwick’s, “I’m sorry, did you say you were out of Smithwick’s?; this is The British Beer Company , is it not?” Then compound that with our least... 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.
