    Great beers on tap. Shows soccer games live all week! And of course the food is delicious. Don't forget to checkout popups on Sundays!

    Keep calm, and carry on. Start with a scone, some coffee, and then let draught beer and some tasty grub stretch Sunday morning into a lazy Sunday afternoon.

    Don't get the meat pie. It will dissapoint. It's just dry lamb meat with plain mashed potatoes over it. Under seasoned and without any gratification.

    Linden St. Brew and a good game make a little slice of Oakland heaven, and if you appriciate a hard boiled egg the scotch egg is not to be missed.

    Bummer that it closes so early on a lot of nights, but they have bomb food and play soccer matches.

    The vegan curry was passable at best. But great beer and cider and an awesome place to hang around.

    Split pea soup is great, bacon is just a garnish.

    Shepards pie with a flight of their ales - you can't go wrong here. Lizzie is the cute blonde bartender that is very knowledgable aboit alcohol on the menu. Love the cozy intimate friendly vibe here!

    This place is the holy grail: coffee + wifi + booze + food + TVs.

    Chicken pot pie is awesome. Although it needs more sides to be a complete meal

    Never pay for parking. The meters are prohibitively expensive. You can find free parking north & west of the pub.

    Bob Heubel · September 20, 2013
  • Sterling M.

    It's a convenient spot to catch a soccer match, but it doesn't feel like a soccer pub. The high number of hipsters and brunchers kind of buzzkills the vibe when your team is playing. Food's great, tho

    Sterling M. · July 24, 2013
  • Roger L.

    A great place to watch footie (soccer)

    Roger Lobbezoo · June 30, 2013

    Chick Pot Pie and Ploughman's platter are where it's at. Order English style beers for the proper vibe, especially Linden St's Ol' Brick, or anything by Meantime.

    If you want to catch a hipster, this is the place
