job Well done – job well done by Tracy and family ........ we have been a customer of BS for a number of yrs and always been treated well by Tracy and family... My husband and I have just had our 50th wedding Anniversary and planed a party with family and friends coming from all over England Ireland and the states I asked Tracy if she could do the food for the party which was for 250 people she did a wonderful job with the food and I am please to say not any was left (no left overs) everyone had more then one trip to the table, Tracy went one more step by doing more then I asked for with little extar touchs and the Price was right she come on the low end of the quotes we had .... I want to thank all the staff from British Sensations for job well done

British Sensations has moved! My wife and I had driven over to the new location and it's great. Much more centrally located and they have plenty of great ideas for the place. The house in Bracken seemed quite old and grungy, but they seem to be on the right track with this place. Looking forward to going and checking it out again when they are fully open

Good Hearty Food – On a recent Saturday I decided to pick up lunch for myself and my parents. I wanted to try British Sensations for some Brit food. I called ahead and ordered the Fish and Chips, a Sausage Roll plate and the Shepherd’s Pie to go. It was all ready when I arrived. I was running ten minutes later then I expected and the food was still hot and smelled excellent. I had the shepherd pie which was an excellent and hearty fair with a flavorful layer of melted cheese on top and the accompanying baked beans were mildly sweet and a good complement. This is not light fair but a generous portion of pie and beans. I shared a bit with my dinner companions and they declared it excellent as well. I wanted to try the sausage roll with the intriguing sauce but I couldn't pry one out of my father’s hands before he had finished them off. My mother enjoyed her fish and chips (fries) but couldn't finish it all so I sampled the fish which was also crispy fried delight. Portions were all generous and food was hot and hearty. My chief delight was not finding the food over salted like so many restaurants favor. My chief complaint would have to be I will need to order my own sausage roll next time when I return so I can sample the taste of one, and not just the pleasing aroma that my Dad provided me with along with his satisfied smile.

Sucks – This is the worst place to spend your money. I watched as the owner took food off the shelves to serve for her restaurant. She then tacked on an extra thirty percent just to stick a pie in the microwave. Save your time and don’t bother going there (unless you want to see a fat lady who said she is the owner squeeze into the tightest clothes she could find).

RATS!!!!! – My girlfriend asked me to take her to this “British Tearoom” for her birthday. I was happy to until; they sat us down and from under the table next to ours came two rats running around! I pointed this out to the woman who was helping us and she responded like it was part of the daily activities there by saying that they have been trying to get rid of them for some time now. I went to pick up my girlfriends purse off the floor and made the mistake of looking at the wood floor next to wall. There I saw rat droppings all along the floor. STAY AWAY, STAY FAR, FAR AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

British Sensaions Not A Sensation – British Sensations at Bracken Village is in such a great location... Perusing shops and finishing with a nice high tea or meal makes for a special day. I'm not sure what is going on at BS, however. I have great memories about my visit when it was Bawdsey Manor, but my recent visit to BS was a dissapointment. I called a few days in advance and arranged for High Tea to be served for us. When we arrived, a table was nicely set and waiting for us. Hot Tea was brought out, but we were never offered a choice of what kind of tea we wanted... The food was delivered in haste with no explanation as to what kinds of finger sandwiches were being served... Then staff disappeared for over 30 minutes so we had to locate someone to ask for fresh tea. The sandwiches were marginal with crusts left on. The sweeter items had the texture and taste of items that had been frozen and thawed, although the whipped cream was nice and fresh. There was an offensive mincemeat pie that was from a package - It has Christmas decorations on it, but our visit was in early July... The grand finish was our having to go stand in the reception area to wait to pay for our meals. It's just so sad...there is so much potential for a tea room or restaurant in this location, but British Sensations is delivering less than sensational food and service .

Save your money – I was told by a relative of the owner that she buys most of her English bacon and other foods from Fiesta Market in Austin and most of her candy and soups from the HEB on the North side of Austin of HWY 35. If your near Austin, just stop and buy it yourself and save 50%

British Sensations = Sensational – My wife and I also ate at the Dickens Night. After we where able to speak to the owner and found that she had limited time to put something together and to also work out of a location that was not her own. I must say that we where highly impressed by the taste and quantity of food. Hope to go again soon
