“Casual lunch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

I went for lunch with my girlfriend on a wednesday and we were delighted find out that the burgers were on special 2 for 1. They also featured Rickards Red & Rickards White on special so we took advantage of both deals our friendly server informed us about. The food was exelent and I will definitely go back again.

“Great Pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The British Arms is meant to be an English pub, although the interior looks like a Canadian Friday/Saturday night watering place. But there is a decent selection of British and imported beers on tap, and a number of traditional British selections on the menu.

We've been there 5 or 6 times, and I've enjoyed the bangers and mash, the burgers, a couple of sandwiches, and their Captain's Salad which is pretty nearly a meal in itself.

My partner loves their chicken tikka masala and swears it's the best curry anywhere.

We always drop in at lunchtime, and it's usually pretty quiet but can get busy. Service is always good, though.

“Fabulous Wings ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

The wings are "tops" ... weather the dry cajun, or honey and garlic, chili sauce ... fabulous - best wings in Barrie, and fries are terrific. The only thing that needs to be done is spruce up the interior, a bit dated. However the outside patio is great.

“It's just not British enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Would love to spend an evening in the British Arms, if only it was more British! It's a Canadian bar and I didn't find too much in it that reminded me of home.
