We have always enjoyed the British and have spread the word to our friends as always being great food atmosphere and value. Last night I don’t know what went wrong but looking around the room ....many people seemed annoyed and just sitting waiting for their food. We were told the wait was going to be longer than normal but for us I had to ask that one of our guests at least get her entree ASAP as she was feeling ill and was pregnant had a scare that afternoon and had just come from the hospital from a check up. Waitress seemed annoyed as if I was que jumping that was not the case. She brought back a role later and that was enough for Louise at that time. Very disappointed as had not taken this couple there before and I will be talking to my friends. I know tonight a work colleague and her friends have booked in so on Monday will be interested in their experience. Like us they have always been very happy with the British.

Amazing spot. Walked there from the city along the river, pretty and it's not far. Took hubby there for a small family dinner. Food is fantastic, staff are all lovely. The dining area is so pleasant, makes you feel all comfortable and happy. The wine list is HUGE, with more than one that can be bought by the glass. So many places only offer 2 or 3 options. We will definitely make the British one of our favourite places to go - often.

We got there on obviously a very busy night and thought we'd be waiting for ages. How wrong. Service was EXCELLENT with the extra of table service. The food was 10/10 with all 7 of us rating our dinners as fantastic. Steak was tender and the sides were just enough, Am looking at booking a diner there for an upcoming conference. Have never had a bad steak at the British and this would be my 10th visit.

Made an on-line reservation 5 days before and when we arrived they had no record of it - they had a table for 2 available anyway so no big deal. Had also been given a "Best restaurants" gift card for Christmas, but was told I couldn't use it if I was also using the "Entertainment book" gold card (apparently it costs the venue 25% if customers use the gift card ?). Food was good.

We had a lovely day on Saturday, and the staff were efficient and gracious. I especially appreciated being able to order soup, not on the menu, because I could not cope with solid food at that time . We will be returning, with pleasure.
