Good food and friendly service. It's nice to sit out the back in the garden area now the weather is warmer. Excellent local wines, notably the Kangarilla Rd shiraz.

From the quite suburban back street of the trendy North Adelaide suburb, The British Hotel stands in all its glory, once you walk through the barn style entrance you walk inside to an upmarket pub that oozes style and character of yesteryear. The open fires help put you in the mood and relax with one of the great selections of beers or wine from the extensive menu. The staff and patrons were very friendly, the staff guide you through the menu and offer you the opportunity to cook your steak yourself on the open grill. I let the chef do mine and they got it exactly the way I like it. The entrée platter for two was a great choice, steak was excellent, you will see my friends and I and back at the British!!

What first came to my attention was the efficiency of the staff. I was not left standing for any longer than 10-15 seconds at the restaurant entrance before a staff member approached to assist. The ambiance of this hotel is part old style mingled with new style hotel. The rear bar and off seating area with true original fireplaces that used actual wood. Very cosy. The restaurant is great with very well prepared meats at a reasonable cost. Also the hotel accepts the Entertainment Card, which dropped the price of the two meals to one. I had the linguine with crab meat and was delicious. Other half had the steak which was cooked to perfection. At all times the staff was attentive and professional. Very friendly and helpful. All in all, a very good hotel to come and enjoy a fireside drink and then meal.

The wife and I shared Ribeye Steak and the Blue Swinmer Crab Linguine for dinner at The British Hotel's Pub. As with previous reviews on other sites, the steak was prepared by the kitchen to the appropriate 'done-ness', for which you pay a few dollars more (as opposed to cooking your steaks yourself. The crab linguine was tasty but we differed on our opinions. I felt it was prepared well but my wife felt it was just a slight bit too 'fishy' in taste. On the overall, we felt that the food was good, but that pricing is not very competitive.

We had a fantastic time, the atmosphere in the bear garden/ dinning area was great. The meals far exceeded our expectations - they were delicious!! The staff were super friendly! We will be going back- again & again! Thank you British Hotel for a wonderful night!

The steak was great, And pork was too, No-one used the cook your own BBQ. Kids menu as you'd expect, And garlic bread was cooked perfect. Drink prices surprisingly reasonable, Didn't get dessert for my credit card would've been full. Staff were friendly but overworked, And there's not enough space for waiters and people waiting for a table to lurk. Altogether this visit was nice, Though I'm not convinced it was worth the price.

Great food and wonderful service. It was truly wonderful to be afforded time to eat our entrees without our mains being rushed out whilst still being consuming our entree. Waiter actually took the time to ask when we felt we might be ready for mains - thank you!!! Food truly tasty. Wine list enjoyable. Atmosphere - relaxing.

The best steak in a very long time was the comment from two of our party. The porchetta and salad didn't disappoint either. Even our vegetarian managed a choice of dishes. Her choice of haloumi with lemon and an additional dish of perfectly steamed vegetables meant that everyone had a good meal. The service was prompt and friendly. Well done The British, we will be back.

We had a wonderful time. Staff were just attentive enough. We had everything we needed and they were not pushy. The food was magnificent. We had friends from overseas with us and they commended us on the evening and our choice of venue

Food and atmosphere was great. My partner and I shared the pork belly and ribs, and both were very good. Drinks are a bit pricey, but you only consume 1 or 2 for the amount of time you are there. Very enjoyable .

Food was Good, Wait staff was efficient and polite, Monday evening was suitably quiet [there was no unneeded noise] Table set for three was slightly cramped, not sure how four would've managed! Very slightly overpriced!
