I have been telling everyone who would listen that the hamburger served at BA is far and away the best I have had. This review was met with varying levels of disbelief. This weekend, we took my future son-in-law there, and was given wide-eyed thumbs...More

Had been in town for several days staying a block from the beach. Stopped in a for a beer and some fish and chips to go one afternoon. Nice friendly staff, good beer and beverage options, and the food was good.

Just had a fun once there. Great service and the food was good. Fish and chips particularly good. The only downside was the Yorkshire puddings which were apparently more like muffins. Other than that a good trip.

Went again and discovered the fabulous tuna tartare, shrimp cocktail and corned beef swiss sandwich on marble rye, yum-yum! Spicy bloody mary not bad either. Good price to quality ratio.

For those in the Santa Cruz area, dropping in to the Brit is a must. Wonderful service and a great selection of English and local brews. Highly recommended for all punters from the Antipodes to the Podes.

A laughable mish-mash of some delusional dream of what a British pub would be like on an alternative universe. The myriad of IRISH referenced items shows how clueless Americans are about Geography and what constitutes Britain. Memorabilia relating to Millwall football club was laughable as...More

Nice restaurant to come and sit and relax in with a pint of beer after a day on the beach. The food was tasty, well priced and the service was excellent.
