My Sister who lives local to this restaurant, has always raved about the Big Ben. Therefore, on the occasion of an extremely rare get-together on 26 Dec with our Family from the UK, I wanted to treat my siblings (party of 8) to Fish & Chips, only to be told by the Waiter that they had run out of chips....

Nice place to stop and sit and have a drink. Laid back and not too expensive. We did not order any food, just had some beer, cider etc. My son that travels indicated the Guinness fell a little flat - we thought that odd for Guinness on tap in a pub. The food looked like pub fare - but we... More

Has a good pub atmosphere and good service. The food is good but its a bit pricey for the volume/quality you get. First time i was there (four or so years ago), they charged $3 for a bowl of potato chips. Prices have gotten more reasonable which is why i have started going back. The food is real good though.

I stumbled upon this place and decided that this is place to have lunch......so far so good. I'm glad it's empty right now.....so enjoying the quietness and admiring the décor. Lots of food and drink specials to choose from. Good food too!

I visited Big Ben British Pub and Restaurant with my husband on a Thursday evening. I love the British culture so when I stumbled upon this restaurant on Yelp I decided to try it. It was not crowded when we went. It was nicely decorated and our food was pretty good. I think I was expecting a more authentic experience,... More

I was so excited to try the chicken pot pie, but was sorely disappointed. Yes, I've been to England and had their food, but this was something else entirely. Loved the atmosphere and drinks we had. I would go back again for that!

Our waiter was very, very nice - but sometimes hard to find. She did bring me a sample beer, which I appreciated, but it took an inordinate amount of time (in my opinion) to get it. And then when I ordered my actual beer, that doubled the amount of time. On the other hand, they had a great selection -... More

Road trip foodie experience... unique decor not to exclude the red telly outside, inviting waitstaff & good eats. My girlfriend loved her fish & chips to the point of planning her return & was thrilled to find a brown betty. I enjoyed the wings they have an Indian spiced flare that was smoky & delicious. We'll be back when in... More

We had to evacuate from Hilton Head today because of Hurricane Matthew, so we returned to Charlotte for our flight tomorrow. Looking through TripAdvisor for someplace to eat we came across the Big Ben British Pub & Restaurant. And am I glad we did! So much so that we're going to return tomorrow for breakfast. Wonderful food plus the bonus... More

I ate here last night for the first time. I did not like the dishes they had, which did not have much variety, and were kind of pricey. I ended up getting a fried fish sandwich with french fries and a pickles, and also ordered a salad with my meal. I thought the food was just mediocre and too pricey.... More
