This pub is just about perfect in every way for me and for my taste. I don't like anything too polished and sterile. If it feels like I'm in a laboratory or a chemist I will generally feel uncomfortable. It can be super classy but it has to also have character. The British can be slightly rough around the edges...

Can always rely on the food and service here. Always delicious, staff exceptional (especially Garath and Amy) and always feel so comfortable dining in this environment.

Ate here on a public holiday and the surcharge was 10%. The parmi was awful. Had we not been starving we wouldn't have eaten it. A pub classic in Aus done so badly. Chips were tastless and the little side salad was undressed.

Last night we took overseas guests to this hotel.They just wanted to go to an Aussie pub and were not disappointed.The menu is quite extensive and we all decided on different food. They chose the kangaroo, pork ribs, scallops and prawns with choritzo, steak with mushrooms and steak with horseradish cream plus some of the meals came with chat potatoes... More

I would have thought in this day and age service, quality and courtesy was a given. Service, waited an hour to be seated! Quality, my food was hardly cooked and the portion sizes were unacceptable! Courtesy, was asked by the waiter "if I had a f#*#en problem" when asking if we would be seated soon. Was extremely embarrassed in front... More

The British has been an iconic place to eat and drink at for many years and we have eaten there many times..but. First I was told at the bar that we have no stouts on tap as it is summer and then when we were going through what was available in bottles, the person then said and we have Guinness... More

A beautiful suburban pub that hasn't destroyed it's atmosphere with bland renovations. Serves simple but good pub meals and has good selection of local and other beers and wine. Some of the young bar staff are bit vague but overall it's good service.

When visiting Adelaide I just love a visit to the British. We have owned property in the area so it is a bit of a local. The food is always excellent pub fare, the ale is cold & the atmosphere terrific. A great spot!
