The portion is more than generous the chips are fantastic and it comes with the sweetest little peas ever. Add a pint and Fridays they are two for one so a couple can dine for around $30 TVS are a bit much maybe but I'm not here to watch them I'm here to feed and be happy And that is... More

This is a good place for a pint with the crew and some finger foods - typical pub fare and atmosphere

I enjoyed sitting on the patio of this little place. Service was very good and my meal of fish and chips was delicious. Nice casual place and not too busy.

Stopped in with the wife for s quick pint. Nice selection on tap. Bar tenders were friendly. Everything seems nice and cleans. They had a live performer that was pretty good. Nice and busy late on a Sunday which is what brought us in.

Stopped by the British Arms for lunch with my family. We were greeted quickly by a friendly server who sat us on the front patio. The patio is small, but served the purpose of getting us outdoors on a very pleasant summer day. Another server took our drink order. She was as friendly as the first! The meal was great!... More

Was there July 10th the 3 course meal for 25$ the appetizers were good calamari mozzarella sticks and fried pickles although the pickles weren't crunchy. The fish and chips was disappointing the batter was soggy not crispy whatsoever. However the apple blossom desert was exellent as was the lava cake. On Sundays Ceasars are also 3.50.

A real British Pub atmosphere with a menu to match. Service was prompt and friendly. We visited in the summer and took advantage of outside seating where we experienced the sights and sounds of downtown Barrie. Our menu selections of haddock & chips and quesadillas were the right choice.

The atmosphere is ok on a Friday/Saturday night, if you don't mind the slew of drunks that still manage to get past security. The drinks selection is good but the food needs an upgrade, the cheese dip tastes like it was brought at the store. Would go here again for drinks but on a week day and would eat before... More

As mentioned 4 orders of fish and chips- think fish had been frozen when they cooked it- all were awful. Waitress was going totals to kitchen and manager then never saw her again. No offer to remake, another option. We had to leave but mentioned we would comment on tripadvisor- waitress just smirked at us. Not great customer service to... More
