Description: The British Open Pub has been locally owned and family operated for 15 years. We also have an additional location in Bluffton SC. Our newest location in Bluffton just won "Best New Restaurant" from the Island Packet's Reader's Choice awards and for years we have won; "Best Fish and Chips" and "Best Bar/Tavern." As well as "Best Burger" and "Best All Around Restaurant" for Hilton Head Island. In past years we have partipated in the Island's Rib Burn off and won popular vote each time. We offer a large selection of sandwedges, salads, steaks, seafood and speciality pot pies, including lobster. Wednesday evening is our Prime Rib night and every Thursday we do a Live Maine Lobster special (by reservation.) Along with special features each night. Reservations are recommended and taken for parties of 4 or more in high tourist season

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

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Stopped at the pub while out shopping. Atmosphere and decor comfortable and inviting. Service extremely nice and friendly.
We arrived around 2 pm so very few people there.
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 second round

Located in the Wexford Village just outside of the Sea Pines Circle on the left side of the road- a few nice shops there (repeats of Harbour town many of them)

“Delicious meal - great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

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 again when on the island. It is a popular place so you may have a wait.

“A Favorite on Hilton Head and With Us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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

Dear PWalther,
We are glad to hear that our establishment is one of your favorites on the island. 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 unwelcome in anyway and that is not how we run our business. Thank you for writing in to make us aware of your experience.
Sincerely, Ashton

“Loved the cozy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

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.
