The British Beer Company in Sandwich is much like the other BBCs I have been to. The food tends to be British. Highlights include the pizza, veggie burgers, and flat iron steak on top of traditional British pasties. They have five nightly specials.

The beer selection is exceptional with much to choose from: Old Speckled hen, Fuller's, Boddington's, Arrogant Bastard, and Mayflower are among the highlights, although they do bring in seasonals. They cover most all styles. The beer selection at this location seems to be slightly better than Cedarville, but they are comparable.

The atmosphere here is a lot more cozy than their other locations. I almost expected to see an open hearth. It almost feels like you are going to eat a meal in someone's large house or a bed and breakfast, not a standard restaurant. This is another reason why this location is one of my favorites in the chain and deserves a separate review. The last time I felt so cozy at a bar was in Moat Mt brewing.
The service was really good and all the food was made to order and delivered promptly/ I will still more than likely go to Cedarville more frequently because it is closer. Still this is a pleasant location that feels like a nice home away from home.

Stopped in for dinner on a Sunday evening about 5:30 pm on our way off Cape. Atmosphere was very good. Excellent memorabilia on walls, very clean. Enjoyed the large invitation to spend "The Royal Wedding Day" at the restaurant with champagne toasts, live bagpiper, and an offer to renew your wedding vows at 6 pm. Seated immediately, excellent server (Krystal) who was very chatty and knowledgeable about the menu. Drinks and food served promptly and at appropriate temperature. Sampled a Boddington on draught. Good but very mild, almost dry. Maybe a little on the "plain" side for me. I like a little more of a mouthful. Ordered the scallop and bacon pizza/individual. Food was a little pricey but very good. Other guest in party had Fish and Chips. Nice piece of fish, lightly battered. Reported to be "good" but it is hard to get an "over the moon" rating on Fish and Chips when you live on Cape Cod. Fries that came with Fish and with the 3rd diner's Chicken Caeser Wrap were declared to be "tops". Too full for dessert :) Excellent dinner for a decent price with great service in a fantastic atmosphere.

I am biased. I love this place. My wife does too. We love it so much we had our rehearsal dinner here. I remember the first time we checked this place out. They had O'Hara's Stout and O'Hara's Red on draft. This was the first time I had seen this amazing brand in the US (on draft no less). I was smitten.

Over the year's the taps have changed but the service and the quality hasn't. The beer selection is always pretty good. You won't be blown away, but there are always surprises. I usually go for a pint of the Fuller's porter which is always exceptional.

The food is delicious and a great value for your money. Again, never been disappointed. Tuesday's are buy one pizza get the second free. The chicken and leek Pasty's are always a favorite. I just wish they would bring back the onion cheese tanglers.

The staff really makes this place. I don't think I have met a more friendly group of people. We had an accident with a pizza here once that ended up on my lap. The waitress offered to redo the pizza for us at no charge. Another time I had my eyes set on this excellent Erdinger glass. I asked the waitress if I could buy it. She went and checked with her manager. Two minutes later she came back with a brown bag and the Erdinger glass! No charge! I love free stuff!

So, if you are down the Cape and tired of dealing with tourists I suggest giving the BBC in Sandwich a whirl.

One of my favorite places to grab a pint. Sandwich BBC has about 15 beers on tap and a lot more in bottle. They have all the regular favorits like Guinness and Bass. A great selection of British beers on tap from Fuller's. The Sam Smith selection is great, everything from the IPA to the Oatmeal Stout, and a couple of the organic selections too. What is really great about this place is they have a cask! When I was there they had the Old Thumper on. As far as I know, no one else has a cask in the imediate area. The staff seems very knowledgable about the beer they offer too.

I had the Fuller's ESB and the Guinness 250 limited edition. Both were perfect!

I visit a few of the BBC's regularly and although they all have the same theme, each one is a little different. The food is great with something for everyone from fish and chips, to pizza and burgers, or great salads.

This is a must stop for anyone in the area!
