We had the lobster roll and chicken pot pie. Food was great. Served quickly and hot. Service was also great. Will definitely be returned customers.

We happened to stop in for lunch during a shopping trip and were very pleasantly surprised by this impromptu discovery. I ordered the day's special and was treated to a very tasty lobster roll which included a good quantity of tasty fresh filling on a lovely fresh baguette. Husband had bangers and mash which he loved, and he is picky... More

We agree with the reviewer who said that the fish and chips aren't up to standards of a real British pub, but it's still way above average for local fare. The fish was good and the chips were excellent. Friends told us the chicken pot pie was great. Maybe we should have listened. But it was a fun place, worth... More

Drop by for a pint while shopping in the area. Limited selection of beer for a restaurant selling itself as a "British Pub." Bavarian pretzels were average.

The beer is excellent - try the Guiness draft and their pub inspired food is usually very good and one of our regulars They miss a few of the real British Pub fares like ploughman's lunches, pork pies and their fish and chips whilst very acceptable is still not close to a real British pub or fish and chip experience....

Three of us ate here on a Friday night in January. By far the best dish was the chicken pot pie. Fish and Chips were so-so.

Stopped in for a cold beverage on New Years Eve day, and what a treat! David was behind the bar and all was PERFECT! He is the best, be it his expertise on a martini or his passion of basketball, that bar was great! He keeps all customers happy and content, just a great way to start the New Year... More

We only get to Hilton Head once a year. We always set aside at least one meal at the British Open Pub, and have never been disappointed. The prices are reasonable and the wait staff is excellent. Food portions are large and just ask for a 'to go box' if you can't eat it all. You will enjoy your meal... More

Fantastic local pub- many of the patrons are loyal customers to this pub which was very nice to see. Tried the brunch and it was very good. The bottomless mimosas were fantastic and the blueberry scones were delicious. Our server was so friendly and helpful. Our overall brunch experience was so nice that we decided to come back. We had... More
