    A fun place, but keep in mind, you're paying for the ambiance. The food is middling & the beer is overpriced.

    A very authentic British pub atmosphere with all the dishes you'd expect to see at one.. I also love that this place is dog friendly I just wish the outside patio had more shade or fans

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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!

    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".

    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.

    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

    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.
