    It's a pub with plenty of beer on tap. Was a little overrun by people on their computers but that didn't stop me from getting a pint, some sausage rolls and a shepherds pie with a bit of HP Sauce.

    Scotch Eggs are luscious. Also, request Underberg when beer and wine aren't doing it for you.

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

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

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
