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

My wife had a craving for Cottage Pie, so we decided to give this place a visit. English food isn't my favorite, but everything we ordered today was beyond outstanding. We had the pasty, the curry chicken, the haddock sandwich and the cottage pie. Service was fast, the portions HUGE and everything was delicious.The family enjoyed sampling all the dishes,... More

The Big Ben Pub is that rare location in Charlotte, NC where one can experience the authentic English pub atmosphere with good food and lots of character. Dark wood paneling, UK art and decor, large screen televisions for football matches, and weekly trivia nights. Atmosphere is casual and friendly, menu is varied with many traditional UK dishes (fish and chips,... More

The food was average, but the cost was high. Not worth the price for bangers that have a frost bite taste and a sub par curry chicken. Draft beer was the best part of the visit. Service was good.

I go here 4-5 times a year for something off the beaten path and I am never disappointed. This place has a great British pub feel and always a fun crowd. The food is consistently very good. I love their wings. I LOVE their burger. My wife still says that they have the best burger in Charlotte. My son loves... More
