    This spot is putting pounds on the pub scene, with drinks like a St. Germain Champagne cocktail and U.K. classics like fish-and-chips. The Newcastle-battered cod is crispy, the fried egg BLT heavy. Read more

    Turn around and leave. Service and food aren't that good. If anything, try the lobster mac

    Monday night $3 drafts are a great deal. They have Goose Matilda on tap, too.

    Changed owners and got rid of almost all of their specials. Go elsewhere during the week! :(

    Great Food, but service could improve. Waitress disappeared and does it really take an hour for fish and chips?

    DO NOT ORDER THE CRAB "CAKES"; they're smaller than their sliders. For $12. Seriously. Avoid.

    Absolutely nothing English about this place. Bangers and mash are sausage and potatoes. Not bad, but not bangers
