I've been here twice now for my meat fix. The petit filet is delicious and perfectly cooked. I also like that the salad dressing comes on the side. Place is busy but everthing runs pretty smoothly considering. The Guinness was delish this last visit. My one complaint this last visit would be the waitress asking me if I wanted dessert... More

This was a great stop when hitting Hilton Head on a day trip from Savannah. The pub food was very good. I had the Shepard's Pie and it was phenomenal. I'd definitely stop again when I have a chance!

The fish and chips were always a favorite here. Went to the Pub about two weeks ago for dinner and the coating on the fish overwhelmed the meager fish. Oil dripped off the when you picked it up. Tried again yesterday for lunch to see whether the previous visit was fluke. Same thing. No longer the nice piece of tasty... More

Everyone I take or send to British Open Pub has always loved it. It's nice to know when I make a recommendation... More

Good pub atmosphere. Because of that it is a little loud, but the food is very good with many British options. The service is good and the prices reasonable. A good experience. Unfortunately, only accepts reservations for four or more people.

For over 20 years we have vacationed in HHI. The Pub is the one we go to the most - 7 times this year.

Food ordered: Reuben bites - okay, but not great Salad - average, large, had to take half of it home. Fish and Chips - tasty Margaritas - good enough to have a... More

Ate here our first night on the island. It was recommended by the concierge at our hotel - and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Food was great (Reuben and French Dip). Our waitress was wonderful - very personable and knew the proper way to pour Guinness - with a shamrock on the top. Will definitely stop by here... More

As always, enjoyed the cuisine, but server's attitude was a little curt. Bangers & Mash is a favorite.

Please don't ever hesitate to ask for a manager or let the hostess know about your server on the way out. This way we may address the problem ASAP if we know who it is. I apologize if you felt uncomfortable or... More

We sat at the bar and were thoroughly delighted with bartenders jake and joe. They recommended the happy hour appetizers and were right on! The food was tasty and the glass of wine generous. My husband had the Manhattan clam chowder and said it was delicious.
