Fresh food and friendly service. Welcoming atmosphere - service with a smile
Extremely busy due to Elton John concert but was made aware of possible delay for food Only about 15 minute wait after we ordered - considering the hotel was full it was an excellent effort Food once again delicious and great service
Very yummy food & great service! Thank you very much.
Brilliant place, amazing food, great service. Will be back soon.
My companion and I visit the British Hotel every time I am in Adelaide as our four times great grand father owned the hotel in the 1840s. We always enjoy good food, wine and service and today was no exception. We had a very good shared tapas platter and were thoroughly enjoying ourselves when I suddenly I had a fainting episode. The staff were marvellous. I can't thank thank them enough for their kindness. In any case, I strongly recommend the British Hotel for its food, service and ambience.
Not your average pub . The British has a charm of it's own with the atmosphere maintaining it's history. Our party of 4 chose to dine here on a bleak Winters day the dining area was comfortable. Service was excellent and we felt welcome. We chose the Tapas starters to share and enjoyed it although just know if you don't prefer things a little spicy you may want something else. We loved it. A combination of much of what was on offer on the menu and would gladly repeat the choice. Mains were Scotch fillet from the grill, salt and pepper squid and beef guinness pie. The beef was cooked as ordered, medium rare and served with chat potatoes (did find the potatoes a bit cold so could have been warmer) and served with a mushroom Jus Salads and vegetables are an added extra so don't overlook them. The wine list is reasonably extensive and are at restaurant prices so don't expect them for bottle shop value. Enjoyed the day and would gladly return
Hi - I booked a table for 3 on Sunday 7th April. We enjoyed our meal, however there was a big table next to ours with a screaming child which made it hard to hear, but we understand there is not much you can do with a screaming child unless the parent takes them outside for a walk. Also we had one waitress who was rather 'slap dash' in her approach to things. She lacked the finer skills of being a waitress - knocking/bumping us as she put down the food, her manner was abrupt and very unpleasant, however the other waitresses and guy were really good. I had the warm lamb salad and really enjoyed it, my husband had the steak but said he asked for a medium cooked steak but when he got it he found it to be very rare and therefore he did not enjoy it as much. I hope you appreciate our honesty. Its a great spot to have a Sunday lunch.
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.
First time diner at this establishment, I would recommend the food and the ambiance in the dining room. The only disappointment was the lack of interest or enthusiasm of the waiting staff. One in particular was just going through the motions. We waited a long time to be offered drinks, one of actually got up from the table and went to check if we had to go to the bar to order. Even after that we still waited a while. It wasn’t even busy. A diner at a mother table accidentally knocked over a drink, we heard it so I imagine the wait staff did as well. No one went to help them mop up the table. Definitely room for Improvement.
