Was not accepting Groupons when we went, even though it had not passed the expiration date. (They did decide to honor it, though). Did not offer Shepherd's Pie the night we were there. Great food. No alcohol. Great service. A little lacking on atmosphere.

It's a dark and dingy, overpriced restaurant. I feel for the owners who seem to be a couple trying to support themselves. The prices are not justified. The food is good...but the entire place reeks of fried fish. The chairs are stained and dirty. The service was touch and go; the server started off detached/disinterested. Later, became kinder and more attentive as the payment (tip) time came closer. I'd rather go to Tops for some fish and chips. I swear.

I only went to Little Britain because I had a groupon for it but boy was I surprised! It's kind of in a shady area of Pasadena and there was only 2 other people in the restaurant when we walked in. I had a cesar salad that was really good and the shepherds pie. The sheperd's pie was so dense, I could hardly finish half of it. It was so so so good. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant!

Service was terrible. Waitress/owner had an attitude.

It was extremely busy the evening we went for dinner, and there was only one very stressed server/busser for the whole place. More help to smooth out the service. That said, all the dishes we had were wonderfully prepared, and we look forward to trying out more. The casual ambiance and good music selections completed the very enjoyable experience. BTW, you should receive a commission from the liquor store next door for all the business you send their way! :-)

The food is the best British you ar likely to find anywhere around, but the service is so, so very bad, I'm not sure I would bother to risk it for the good food. The waitress was surly and obviously very upset we and others were actually USING our Groupon. Also the hours posted are ballpark at best. It will be hit or miss whether or not they are actually open.

The fish and chips were COMPLETELY tasteless. I was so disappointed. I won't be back.

From Our Editors

Cheese and chutney. Bangers and mash. Shepherd's Pie. At the BYOB Little Britain, UK faves slake stateside cravings with hearty helpings of potato, steak, and curry. Though the lunch and dinner menus are occasionally dotted with decidedly non-British dishes, such as Cajun fish spread and caprese salad, the majority of plates feature classically executed English flavors.

If requested, melty cheddar cheese, known in England as "cheese," will top the clouds of mashed potatoes that crown a chuck-steak-and-gravy-filled shepherd's pie. Sardines and tomato sauce are layered onto thick brioche before the open-faced sandwich is slid under a broiler, and curry cloaks chicken, samosas, vegetables, and fries—known here, of course, as chips.
