The food is amazing. The service is even better. We travel about 45 minutes a few times a month for the food. Best shrimp and fish anywhere. And the Chip Butty...A sandwich with chips (French fries) on a buttered roll? Also Amazing.

Great little hole in the wall British place with authentic fresh choices you'd expect.

Joker 12090

Great people, great food, and great atmosphere! It's reasonably priced, and if you haven't had it, try a cherry-lime Ricky, they're delicious!

Bruce Kennard

Great food, try the scallops!

I’m a frequent visitor to Bennington, VT due to the fact that several of my favorite motorcycle routes intersect here. It’s a charming place to stop for a rest but I’ve found that the local dining options are mediocre. Until today when I was passing through and decided to dine at Lil Britain. The fish and chips were amazing. Everything was freshly cooked and served piping hot. The portion size for a small platter was very generous. The fish tasted fresh and wasn't overpowered by the batter (which had a perfect consistency!). The chips were soft and not too oily. I can’t wait to return and try out the other seafood options. I’d highly recommend stopping here if you’re passing through. The other local dining options are popular only because there is nothing else around. Lil Britain actually does it right.

Love this place the best and only place to get fish and chips plus more in this town and around! Good food and fantastic friendly service!!

Mike Kister

Friendly staff and made to order food makes this place a great choice. I had the fish and y while my wife had the bangers and chips. Both were very tasty with thick cut fries and fresh Cole Slaw. Hint: the small sizes were more than enough.

Richard Schwarz

Amazing fish!!!

Marcus Hanwell

Revisited recently and it seems to be under new management. Doesn't taste as authentic, slow to serve, lost the British feel and taste. Won't be rushing back. Original from a few years ago (5 stars): "Some of the best fish and chips in the area, great owners, really friendly, take some real pride in their food. It is well worth a visit if you find yourself in the area."

Tom Irwin

Lydia Blankenship

Always the best food! Was amazing with the first owners and still amazing with the second set! Fav is the chicken tenders, chips and coleslaw, which I put them ALL on the soft buttered roll, pour honey mustard on top and eat like a boss!! If you find yourself anywhere near Bennington, VT PLEASE stop in and try something!!

Stephan Deibel

The fish and chips were excellent.


Small luncheonette. Very authentic fish and chips were very good.nice to see making English meat pies as well. Noticed folks coming into buy bags of Berger’s to go at lunchtime that says something too

Being from Manchester UK I needed a chippy. I've been to a salt and battery in NYC and Lil Britain. I found Lil Britain chippy much better and priced more reasonable.

Great little chip shop in a nice location. I remember as a kid having the opportunity to visit London, and I basically live on fish and chips. This Britain may be little, but it lives up to the flavor and feeling.

You could walk right by it if you're not looking for it but it's definitely worth a stop in! Enjoy

Dr. Steven Anthony Sola

Great fish and chips -- better than I have had in England. If you are in the mood for fried fish, this is it.

Emily Crum

D Clark

Best fish and chips for miles. I always stop to eat here whenever I am in the area. Last meal a few weeks ago. Steak pie was so satisfying and delicious. Seafood combo was equally good.

Tammy Washburn

Jan Krampitz

We ate there yesterday for lunch as "out of towners" and loved it! I hope Bennington appreciates what they have in this gem of an eatery!

Zachary Svoboda

Proper fish and chips. They have reasonably priced European candy too

Gloria Dunham

Fish n chips were champs!!!

Tommy Belville

A lot of food and good prices

Richard Valentine

Since our arrival from 'over the pond' 24 years ago there are many things a 'Brit' yearns for and perhaps THE one is our traditional Fish 'n' Chips. This visit to Lil' Britain on a day when temperatures began to plummet and a howling wind buffeting us on our journey (1 hour +) from over the NY state line, was well worth our effort and our anticipation of the platter was more than satisfactory. First observation is that the place is immaculate and that includes the restroom. Nathan (the proprietor) is very welcoming and once our choice was made it took a considerable period for the food to be prepared and presented. Your food is always cooked to order and we can attest that the battered haddock was crisp and moist in that order with 'chips' the only way they can be produced in large cut form and plentiful. The side order of 'mushy peas' was our choice and made this visit a real early winter treat for traditional food from the 'old country' as close to the real thing as it could get. Continued congratulations to Nathan and Lil' Britain for our experience. We'll be back!

Bob Go

Wonderful, authentic English fare In a delightful atmosphere!

Robert Hart

Really good fish and chips, English style - just without the newspaper wrapping. Very friendly place to stop and get a quick meal. Next time we are in the area we will stop in again.

Joel Warren

The fish and chips were very good with the exception of a little needed salt on the frys imediately following cooking. Portions were large and staff cheery.

Jeffrey Jennings

I have been in the area for some time now and always drove or walked by Lil' Britain, but I never bothered to check them out. I regret not having stopped in sooner than I did recently as I have come across some of the absolute best chips (fries) that I have ever had. Upon the first bite, I was hooked. Soft and thick fries cooked just right with each bite full of flavor and excellence. It has been quite a long time since I've had great chips/fries and that journey has ended.The chips came with fried chicken and they were equally amazing! This is a nice little spot that should not be missed!

AJ Bailey

Love this place always see if it's open if I'm in town

John Padula

Adrian Sebborn

Excellent food at very affordable prices. This is a great little place to get real fish and chips or bangers and mash. Don't miss it.

Aileen Hamerton

Not much choice! However, the fish & chips were very good. Chicken & steak pies were also delish! Worth stopping by..

Seth Bonnett

Andrea Hall

Always a great food!!!

Inger Knudson

Amazing and authentic

Laura Fowler

As close to home as it gets in the US... I do wish they had saveloys though!

Greg Roach

Pretty darn close to the UK fish and chips places they have modeled themselves after. Not fussy. Extremely consistent. I wish they had a beer and wine license. One of our favorite places for a casual bite.

Ida Dunbar

Small quaint place for seafood deep fried. Prices are reasonable. Friendly atmosphere.

Brian Lambert

Dan DeBrito

We got fish and shrimp. Both were very good. Nice batter. Chips/fries were from fresh potatoes and were nice and crisp. Nothing was too salty, Cole slaw was good too. My son reminds me to say "the shrimp was excellent!". Portions were large even though we ordered the small plates.

Nicole Chase

Delicious and fresh! Simply tasty! Owner and cook was kind and friendly and we had such a nice lunch!

James Coakley

Real fish and chips, just like in Great Btitain. Made while you wait. Fresh.

Finally the taste of home. Having tried British chip shops across the US, this one definitely comes out on top!

Nothing fancy about this place and you won't get the neighborhood confused with Yuppieville, but the seafood is very good, down to earth staff and very reasonable prices.

Doug Eash

Fish n Chips are the best I've had anywhere. I also love the Shrimp n Chips. I really need to try their other optiond!

James Redmond

Like a little fish and chip shop transported here from home.

Anna Heffernan

Megan Bonneville

Great little place! Always drive by and want to stop, we finally did! Owners were very friendly and the food was delicious ! I enjoyed looking at the pictures on the wall while I waited for our food. They had funny little candies and such for sale too! We will definitely return! The portions and prices were excellent! Thanks!

Haven't found a better Chip Shop state side yet. Get everything. It's all mouth watering!

Janice Cox

Excellent, as usual.Mushy Peas, with my Fish and chips, my new choice from pickled beets, which are great too

Greg Restino

Mad Warrior

I absolutely love this place, the staff are so friendly, it's always clean, and they literally have the best fried fish in the state. Nathan makes everyone feel welcome and important. Would absolutely recommend, even if you don't like fish, their burgers are on point too.

Joey Kulkin

You get a hunk of haddock atop a mountain of chips and the batter is light and crispy and everything is made to order and delicious and you won't find a better authentic fish and chips joint in New England.

Kash .

The batter was really good, we order few differnt menu items and everything was great.

Vincent Fondren

Great fish and chips, try the beets and the cucumber salad and the mushy peas. The couple that own the place make it a lot of fun. We took some meat pies for the freezer.

Michelle C

Went here over Labor Day weekend - I had the steak pie, my husband had the potato pie, we shared the mushy peas and had local fountain drinks. It was most fantastic, the food was excellent, the service was awesome. They have little British delights there, various candies and sauces (including the world famous HP sauce!) that are available for purchase. I bought some candy and HP sauce, very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place, I will definitely patronize again if I happen to be in the area :)
