    A bit overrated. Cool after class hangout for UST peeps

    West Highland Cheese Soup is the best.

    So hard to decide what to have ordered but trusted my instinct to get the bangers and mash and it didn't disappoint. Nice place to go while visiting Houston.

    Fish and chips is of course expected in a pub. Not as good as it used to be. The fish needs to be crispier.

    Perfect after work wind-down.

    Nothing. Not a English pub at all. My husband said it was the rudest service he had ever encountered. Food is bad and they never clean their beer lines ever!

    The soups here are great, but the rest of the food is disappointing.

    Meg · August 11, 2014
  • Miriam G.

    Good place for a burger, English food, and a nice Smithwick's or Guinness.

  • Houston Press

    Well-worn wooden floors, low ceilings, British memorabilia, a large bar and good ole English pub food all go to make this one of Houston's favorite pubs. Read more

    Careful of the Scotch Egg dish. The sausage was still raw when the server brought it out.

  • Glenn B.

    Overpriced. Bland food. Big chess pieces out front.

    Glenn Burns · March 11, 2014
  • Jen L.

    Nice atmosphere but OMG! the service leaves something to be desired. Slow is one thing. Pouring a drink then getting distracted and leaving it sit... in sight but out of reach of customer... torture!

    Chicien vegetable soup is really good and Boddington on tap.

    Sweet little cozy spot tucked away on Montrose with some good old fashioned English dishes.

    It's a nice place with comfort food!

    Absolutely lovely atmosphere. I've particularly enjoyed the cheddar soup, and the cheese platter. The Bleu burger is also excellent. The service here has always been cordial and professional.

    Worst food I've had in months! The service was rude and had a lot of attitude. I had high hopes for this restaurant because the decoration is beautiful but I ended up very disappointed and angry.

    The worst "Prime Rib" ever. My wife's beef Wellington was more tender than the supposed "Prime Rib".

    Jeff Chalkley · May 21, 2013
  • Jennifer B.

    STAY AWAY!! Horrible service. 2 roaches on the floor Running around!!!! Cold food and a waitress with an attitude! This place used to be good years ago. STAY AWAY!

    Wish you could eat here everyday? Now you can when you live just around the corner at The Plaza Museum District apartments!

    Prime Rib is very very good

    I agree. Get brunch! If you're into sweet try the English toast. The breakfast frittata is great too.

    Who says British food sucks? Try the Beef Wellington and have the Spotted Dick for dessert. Yes, that's what is called.

    Henry's Hungry Houston · June 15, 2012

    Outdoor patio amongst the trees ... so refreshing!

    In winter, get there early if you want a seat by the fire.

  • Jay V.

    Beef Wellington tastes good but is NOTHING like a real one! It was just a stew with pastry top. Real beef wellington is completely wrapped in pastry - see pic

    The Scotched beef is superb!

    Ned Turner · December 27, 2011

    Great pub, and I love their burgers and fries. The waitresses and their knee socks are great, too.

    One of my favorite places in Houston for fish and chips. It comes with two pieces of perfectly battered and deep fried cod and good fries.

    Julianne A · April 16, 2011
  • Joe D.

    That was hell of a beef wellington they got.

    Joe Dotson · March 18, 2011
