Small friendly place. Been a few times and have had Sal as a server/bartender. Great guy, personable, friendly and attentive! The food is basic and good. Lots of British items. Nice and casual. Keep up the good work!

First, don't confuse this British Open with the one in Venice, they are not related other than by name. The food is fine, not great but good, the beer is cold and carbonated and the place is generally clean. The downside is that the table service could be improved. We were eating and the waitress was smoking outside the building and although she filled my beer quickly my date never got a refill on ice tea even when it was empty. No smoking here and that is good. Parking is convenient. Fish and Chips are to be avoided as they are not tasty at all, the hamburgers are above average and the Cottish Pie is very good.

We absolutely LOVE British Open! Such a great find! The staff is super nice and the food is easily in the top 5 in Sarasota. We used to go there or get takeout at least once a week when we lived in south Sarasota, it's about once a month now that we're on the north end but it would be worth the drive even if we were a lot farther away. If you haven't gone yet, DO IT!!

Have loved dining here for many years! Food is great--best liver and onions in town! Great British food--Cottage Pie, Fish and Chips. Staff are upbeat and friendly! Have never dined outdoors,( parking lot view ) but love the Pub inside! And excellent Draft beer!

I had a free meal for my birthday month from British Open Pub so we decided to give it a try. I will say it was decent, nothing to write home about, but it was not great nor horrible, just somewhere in between. We both had the fish and chips, the fish was flaky and tender. The food came out very fast, service was excellent, atmosphere was what is to be expected for a strip mall location. I probably would not go back, but I wouldn't say, don't go here either.
