Boston Restaurant Blog -- February, 2006

We headed down to the pleasant town of Pembroke on the South Shore last night, and ended up having a good meal at the British Beer Company, which is on Route 53 just over the line from Hanover. This place was jammed, and for good reason; the British Beer Company is a comfortable, family-friendly place that is also VERY friendly to beer lovers like myself. Fuller's ESB, Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, Boddington Ale, I could go on and on; the British Beer Company definitely has an impressive variety of beers.
The food at the British Beer Company is decent overall. They serve traditional British pasty pies, which are filling entrees that have beef, turkey, or chicken wrapped in dough. I ordered the pasty with ground beef, and though it was good, combined with the dark beers I had, I probably gained 10 pounds at the restaurant.
Aside from the beer at the British Beer Company, another thing that stood out was the low-key, cozy, attractive atmosphere. The place really does look like a British restaurant and pub, with old-fashioned lights, lots of wood, and a fireplace in the back. On that alone, I will go back, as nothing beats a good beer or two in a place that makes you want to stay awhile.
Here is the address for the British Beer Company in Pembroke: British Beer Company, 15 Columbia Road, Pembroke, MA 02359; the phone number is (781) 829-6999. There are also several other British Beer Company locations; one each in Hyannis, Falmouth, and Sandwich, and two in Plymouth, with more likely on the way.

Can't be the same place I've been to a few times. The beer selection is good, but the food is god-awful, and way too expensive. The "99" up the road a piece is a much better-run establishment in every way - including cleanliness.
