Best Fish n Chips in the Area!

My boyfriend first treated me to fish and chips here. He lived in England for many years and kept telling me how good it was, even better than most he had in England! I don't usually eat much fried food but honestly this was the best fish I've had and now we make it a point to stop here every... read more

Food quality is good. Simple pub style fare. Fish n chips, steak and kidney pie, bangers. Reminded me of my time in England many years ago. My kids like the food so it is one of our Bennington lunch spots. They also have a TV and put on soccer games which is great for a soccer fan like me.

The chip butty is the best thing you'll ever eat for $4! Their fish n chips are what's famous but I always go for the chip sandwich. French fries on a butter bun sounds weird but trust me.

My wife and I happened upon this place while walking around in Bennington. We are so glad we did. Though the place is small, the menu is varied enough. I had the seafood platter and my wife had the steak pie. Both were excellent. The gravy with the pie was simply delicious. And I'm not even much of a gravy... More

If a restaurant has Fish and Chips on the menu, my wife will try it before anything else. She has Lil Britain tied for first place, (with a little out of the way seaside spot we happened upon in Canada). Need more be said?

I stopped in today for lunch and was pleased to see that Lil Britain was open. They gave me a nice piece of fried fish. I skipped the chips since I try to keep my meals small. I was very tempted though. It's the real deal with the fish and chips. There's malt vinegar at every table. Tasty side dishes... More

Great little British Fish & Chips shop right in the heart of town. Tender flaky fish and a small selection of English sodas and groceries.

Stopped in for dinner last weekend after hearing about this place from a relative. Only a few tables,mainly takeout, but cute touches like the telephone box and British posters and magnets, as well as a postal box in the hall made it cheerful, as well as football(aka soccer) on the televisions and UK radio station playing. Staff was very pleasant... More

The fish and chips were good, but I wanted more British feel. The groceries were limited to a few candies and cookies.

We are from Western MA and come out to Bennington almost weekly, maybe twice a month JUST for their fish and chips! Generous portion, cooked to perfection, and always tastes outstanding. We've even talked about asking them to cater our wedding haha.
