“Nice atmosphere, great service and average food at the BBC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

I had a hankering for some bangers and mash and found this place while wandering around Menlo Park. It is really beautiful inside with the stained windows and the bar was gorgeous, but the atmosphere seemed a tad stuffy at times. I was welcomed as soon as I approached the bar and ended up seating myself outside. I did have the bangers and mash, which should have rather been called "banger and mash." It was essentially one banger that had been cut up and served upon a smear of mash across a thin white plate. If it was a fantastic banger, I wouldn't have minded so much, but it was average, as was the mash and the onion gravy. I was actually disappointed at the lack of authentic British dishes offered. And for $15, I expected more than a single banger. The beer offering is good and the service friendly. I would go there for drinks and appetizers, but will skip the meal next time.
