    Very convenient to Moscone West. Nice people, intimate space (low capacity). Good selection of soccer matches on several TVs. Fish and chips was awesome (ask for curry on the side for with the fries).

    A good fish-n-chip is hard to find. Batter is light and tasty, slightly on the soggy side and the cod broke apart into pieces. I will continue my mission to find the greatest fish n chips in SF.

    Best Fish and Chips in the Bay Area. Skip the rest of the menu. Get there early to beat the game crowd. I had mine with cold glass of Magners Pear Cider on ice.

    With a proper rugby and football scene in place, if you're visiting SF during the 6 Nations Rugby Championship, this pub will show the early morning matches. The kitchen opens at halftime.

    Most excellent shepherds pie -- with lamb, because ya know, shepherds pie doesn't make any sense at all when made with beef. that would be cowherd pie, or something. Yuck

    Wow. The service here really SUCKS. Awesome setting. Decent food. Service is pretentious, slow, and entirely unattentive. If I owned this place, everyone is fired...

    Nice place, loud and crowdy though, so dont go there if u want a quiet evening. The smoked turky with avocado and pear chutney was really good.

    The barmaids are close to ugly and kilts are definitely not in order. Takes too long to get served. Must be poorly treated. A far cry from Ye Olde Orchard in Montreal. Good riddance.
