It's a small and noisy pub when the weather isn't great but has a good atmosphere. The food was really good value and delicious. The calamari was excellent. There was no shortage of APA's to try.

We stopped for lunch and really enjoyed the chicken burger with a great mango chutney. $15 for a burger and small plate of chips was good value and it was washed down with a nice cold beer.

The BBC is called a tasting studio which is fair enough, they have heaps of their own beers to try and every time we go there are different beers on tap. Their beers are award-winning. Be adventurous! Try their new stuff! Regular visits to BBC...More

They have a great selection of tap and bottled beers, and a really respectable bar meal menu, all served by friendly, efficient bar staff. There is a small outside area with tables under umbrellas, and a larger indoor area with bar, table, and lounge seating...More

Really nice place with good hearty food, excellent beer selection and fabbo service! Not a huge place but filled with good vibes. BBC has become our favourite in Birkenhead in a short time. The calamari plate gets a special mention as well as the burger....More

Thanks for your review msgtoelina. We love out little place in the village and the remarks about our signature dish, the Calamari, are abundant. Cheers!
