What a gem for Franklin. This place offers a little bit of everything. A very clean and welcoming atmosphere, a wonderful tasty beer selection and the food is pretty awesome as well. Their customer service is outstanding and even the prices are good as well. If your visiting Franklin on business or pleasure, you can't pass by The British Beer... More

I made reservations at the British Beer Company in Franklin, MA for Easter Sunday on opentable and got the confirmation email. Considering we were 6 people in our group and Easter Sunday is not the easiest time to get a table for 6 people, I wanted to make sure we had a table. When we got there with our whole... More

We had dinner here recently and the waitress was very nice and helpful. My friend is a vegan so she had questions about the ingredients and the waitress did a great job getting the answers. The pretzels are now off the menu but we requested them and she was able to get us an order. They were very good. I... More

This was our first time trying this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. We stopped in when it wasn't busy, so there wasn't a hostess to tell us where to sit, so we just went in and grabbed a tall bar table. We enjoyed a couple of beers; really like that they support the locals and had local brewery beer... More

We have been here a few times. The food is good but not great. The place can be really loud. The wait times can get really long so make reservations if you can. The other night they were out of one of their regular beers that we get. The time before that they were out of Jameson. Service is average.... More

Food is good and service is good. The BBC experience is pretty consistent, so if you've tried one, you know exactly what to expect from all of them. Beer selection is reasonable. There's almost no way to avoid the TVs in this place, though -- Good if you're there to watch the game, bad if you're there for undistracted conversation.

Good place to stop in for a beer and casual pub food. Generous portions. Fairly empty when we visited, but I can imagine it gets a bit noisy later in the evening when it is full. Bar seating features comfortable booths as well as tables.
