After reading some reviews we were hesitant - but it was easy to sit at the airport before our flight and have some drinks and pub food. Took awhile for our server to come over but she more than made up for it- she was spot on with her recommendations and the food was better than reviewed or what we... More

In town for the NCAA tournament, so great sports bar atmosphere. Had the sliders and fries--a great item to share. Food was good and reasonably priced. I'd go back!

Not sure from the reviews. How can you go wrong with a vegetarian burger? I had the avocado 🥑 added and it was good. Close to the gate which was great.

Food is your typical pub fare but the lady who served us was very polite and attentive. Also has sports on the TVs if that's your thing.

We were wanting to get some dinner, watch a bowl game and came across The Brit right near our gate (20). We did not have any issues with the service and found the staff helpful and attentive. The food was ok, I found my pulled pork sandwich very dry. Not much space to maneuver with your luggage and the high... More

With a half hour before boarding a Southwest flight at gate 21, I went into the Brit and explained my need for a breakfast in a hurry. Breakfast and the check arrived in 7 minutes, was tasty and filling. Recommended.

When you can't get an order of Jameson shots right, you had probably better switch jobs. Just a sad excuse for a pub. Especially when you factor in airport prices. Do yourself a favor and skip this place.

I had the Bangers and Mash. The bangers were very good and the mashed potatoes fresh, but the gravy was obviously from a mix or canned. Good fresh steamed broccoli. The fish and chips were very good, The highlight was the Bloody Mary! Truly superb. Great friendly wait staff! Overall, much better than most airport fare!

Service here was good. Although we were eating before the main lunch crowd came over. Got beers very quickly. Food was good and hot. No issues from my perspective.
