    Whoa! Felt like k was actually in London with their British beers and Scotch eggs. Don't leave without their burger and fries!! Seriously top notch! Fries might be my favorite ever!!

    Hidden gem, perfect for few drinks after work and before dinner. Drinks are fine, whiskey selection is descent. Prices are affordable. Busy from 4pm to 7pm. Staff is very kind. Just the music is loud.

    Pull back the velvet curtain and descend into a 16th-century style British pub decked out in tons of wood, a low ceiling and a mock fireplace. Read more

    The family style setting in this place is amazing, together with Morgan dining room, these are my favorite spots for weekend family dates. The house blend burger is the best I've ever had, DELICIOUS!

    This burger went through about 20 different tastings to get it right. It was tested and tasted with different burger blends from Pat La Frieda, as well as different cheeses and sauces. Read more

    Seriously good burger, with amazing fries (chips). Near enough to Grand Central Terminal, that you’d be cheating yourself by missing it!

    The Black Sheep Ale is an excellent Yorkshire beer and ideal thirst quencher at this British oasis when it’s 95 degrees outside.

    House Blend Burger is good but can be intense if you're not a huge meat eater (with 3-4 different meats in there). The thick cut chips are great

    Authentic English pub vibe. We were seated straight away and started off with scotch eggs which I followed with chicken korma pie and mushy peas. Mmm

    Sticky toffee pudding was amazing. Soft, warm, and just the right way to end a meal here!

    Charming pub with great food. Both the fish & chips and salmon burger are great choices.

    A walled-off booth in a Midtown basement named for the greatest sonnet writer who ever lived. There’s a small window you can slide open for direct access to your servers.

    Cozy little nook of a place to warm up on a winters night when there is a chill in the air.

    Ask the manager if you and your boo can get a couple of drinks and bar snacks in the Snug, a closed-off area to the right of the bar. Read more

    Good selection of beers and good place to wait while you get a table at the Raines Law Room upstairs ;)

    Burger is top class. Scotch eggs are equally as delicious. Cask ales are a must try

    Try the Beans On Toast -- a delicious, classic dish that works well as a brunch meal with a fried egg on top.

    As you might expect, this place is a British gastropub, and it’s actually run by the same people as Jones Wood Foundry, an Upper East Side restaurant we like a lot.

    Can't get into Raines or looking for something more low key? This spot is louder, more casual, less datey.

    Food is great, but service needs to improve. We sat at the bar and the barman got the order wrong and his only "solution" was offering me to order something else.

    Got overwhelmed by a large party and my card got lost. Bartender was nice about the goof. As long as it isn't right after work isn't probably ok but doesn't handle being packed well.
