Definitely the place for great fish and chips, and marvelous beer selection. They were out of Boddingtons on this night but the Guinness made up for it.

I used to go to the British Open Pub when it was at the golf club in Sun City, it has since changed owners so I visited the one at Wexford Plaza. I am glad I did, the food was still excellent. The ribs very tender and lean, with a great barbecue sauce. All of the sides were very good.... More

We loved the atmosphere and the service at this bar. Sweeter was our bartender and was very friendly and funny! We went to have a few beers but the food was also amazing. I had the cobb salad and it was great. We even went back there to have the same meal again a few days later. You will not... More

Walk in to the bar on my 10 year anniversary with my wife and had a great time. The bartender who they call Sweeter is awesome. He likes to joke around and have fun but is also right on top of his game. I would recommend this pub if ever in the area.

A few years ago we visited the British Open Pub and I ordered Pork Chops with Blueberry sauce. We were visiting Hilton Head again this year and I went to the Pub to see if they were as good as I remembered. I was disappointed to find that they were no longer on the menu. I mention this to our... More

I have too many favorite foods to list, but I'm definitely a fish and chips fan. This is a restaurant that makes you wonder why that dish isn't more popular in this country. They put out good grub

My wife and I stopped in for Happy Hour and to watch some US Open tennis. Jenn was our first bartender and she was great. Then there was a shift change around 5PM and we both became invisible. Two male bartenders constantly chatted with everyone else at the bar and totally ignored my wife's empty beer glass. Neither of them... More

The service you received is completely unacceptable, and not how we run our establishment. I will be speaking with these bartenders to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. We have no... More
