Don't Waste your Money! – I am-- was! a regular customer at the britannia arms here in Monterey. I spend money there almost everyday. I went there today for lunch, while I was eating lunch I over heard the waitress Betty saying she was from scottland and me being a regular I always thought she was from england and I told her that and she said: "Go figure those stupid *&^%ing Americans." I almost jumped out of my seat relizing she just called me a stupid ------- American. I have spent my last dollar there for a long time. If we all are stupid *$#8*ing Americans" then why is she here? There alot of people looking for food service work here and then we have someone thats not even from here taking advantage of us and their job! she should be fired. Don't waste your money or time here.
Poor service – The bartender is not pleasant and not respectful to patrons. We got kicked out because we tipped too little. The bartender threw oout tip bar in ou face and we threw it back behind the bar (9.29.09)
Avoid the lousy bartender – I have been to the Brit many times over the past year--at least 2 or 3 times a month--but my most recent visit might be my last. It started off a a rather typical evening, sports on the big screen, everyone having a good time as usual. When the football game on the big screen was almost over, many of the customers asked if the TV could be changed to a close baseball game that was just about to end. Since there were a few guys still watching the boring, lopsided football game, the bartender rightfully decided not to change the channel. So as soon as the football game ended, we again asked if he could change to the baseball game so we could watch the last 2 outs. Again, the bartender refused this time just being stubborn, and many of the paying customers who had been sitting there all evening, spending a ton of money were a little upset as you can imagine. Some of the customers decided they would not tip because of this, and one guy said, "way to take care of your waitress bartender!" The bartender's response? He gave the middle finger to the customer! Then for the next 10 minutes he kept griping about the customers and even yelling a few things back at them. It was completely rude and unprofessional behavior. This bar does not deserve my business. I'll go where I am welcome from now on.
