Whether it's a business lunch, an after work get-together, a family dinner in friendly surroundings, or a late night soiree of great music over pints with friends.Come visit your "local" today! Here at the The British Arms we pride ourselves on using locally sourced, fresh produce when in season. Our team of highly trained chefs and service staff will cater to your every need.

We first went for their Wing night on Tuesday which is very busy, and now we're regulars on a Friday for the best fish and chips we have ever had. My wife and I are both Britsh and can't praise this place enough. The staff have always treated us as "regulars" from the first time we ate there. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and always happy to answer questions, regardless of how busy they are. Menu is traditional with some mild north american influence.

We will try their burger deal on a wednesday night next!. We love this place

My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time. In the heart of Barrie. What a pleasant surprise. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Prices were very good and portions were filling.
We will definitley go again.

I have been to this restaurant more times than i have been to any other in the Barrie area. My family and i love their buffalo wings, and even though they arent the size of the ones found at Wild Wings they are still a great deal on cheap days ( Tuesdays). I've had their burgers, which was perfect and fresh (it comes out pink in the middle, if you prefer well-done I suggest requesting that before hand). Their steak sandwhich is tasty (again...is cooked at a Medium, ask if you like it well done or rare) Their fries are hand-cute and addictive. Their buffalo chicken cigars are the PERFECT appetizer, and if you have a chance to come during the Winterlicious or Summerlicious, i highly reccomend it. Fried cheesecake is a must, their fish and chips are the best. ONLY thing that keeps this restaurant from being consistantly perfect is their service. Some nights we barely feel welcomed, and other nights we feel like royalty. If the service was more consistant this place would get 5 Stars!

There is a good beer selection but pretty standard fare and if you are into craft beer you won't find much. The food is tasty but nothing special. Decent pub.

Since recently moving to Barrie, we stopped in for drinks on Christmas Day(the only place open) in the downtown. Liked the atmosphere very much. Then stopped in again the following Friday evening for the 2-4-1 Fish & Chips Deal. Two can eat 2 huge pieces of fish(10-12 oz each) for $14.00. What a deal! and they were delicious. Ended the meal each with the fried cheesecake and the bowl of ice cream(a huge bowl 2 can easily share!). Left feeling absolutely stuffed! Will visit again. Thanks.
