People are the heart and soul of any pub.

Whether you curl up in our quaint English dining room or pony up to the neighborhood bar, you are sure to feel at home! We proudly serve everything from British favorites of fish & chips, cottage pie, and liver & onions to pub grub including juicy angus burgers and hot honey garlic wings.

With over 300 whiskies, 20 draught beers, many fine wines & spirits, and specials, everyone is sure to find what they’ve been craving! The British Open Pub is the place to come for comfortable food, friends, and atmosphere!

Pubs have always been the place to gather and chat. People are the heart and soul of any pub. The pub patron is not just a customer, but a guest and a friend. We strive to emulate the warmth and character of an English Village Pub, continuing and age-old British Tradition!

History of The British Open Pub

Originally opened in 1998, the British Open Pub has become a staple in the Venice Community!  Now led by mother/daughter team Kathy & Kelly Olliver, the British Open Pub remains committed to offering a consistent, quality product for a fair price.  The Pub is also privileged to be able to support many non-profits in the Venice Community.

A Dog-Friendly Patio!

Owners are allowed to accompany their well-behaved dogs on our Garden Patio!  Fill up with a fresh made peanut butter burger or skinny chicken off our Puppy Pub menu or cool off with our homemade doggie ice cream!  We love to pamper our Pub Pooches!

The Whiskey Uprising

With over 300 whiskies, there is always something new to enjoy at the British Open Pub.  The Whiskey Club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month to taste and learn about different whiskey selections.  Amateurs and Aficionados, alike, are encouraged to join in the fun!
