    If you like beers that come out of taps, liquor and solid prices then you can't go wrong here. Don't expect any fancy cocktails, just shut up and drink.

    Every British cliche wrapped up in one place. Took 20 minutes to order a drink and 15 minutes to arrive after that.

    OMG, proper breakfast with toast that's not been dipped, spreaded or covered in something sweet!! No fruit piled on either. Just breakfast as it should be. Thank You

    The fried bread is first glance it just looks like toast but when you bite into the crispy bread the crunch will bring acknowledgement that it was definitely fried!!!

  • Jenni

    Dry Blackthorn Cider + Jameson + Roasted Salmon = Perfection

  • Kate H.

    Classic English dive pub. Mixed crowd of Cinco de Mayo revelers on the day I visited (yes, that is odd) but assume from the fairly friendly staff that it's usually a bit more low-key in this pub.

    Kate H. · May 7, 2013
  • Laura R.

    Love the fish n chips!

    Laura Rea · April 12, 2013

    Only in LA will you hear an entire bar sing along to Sublime and Frank Sinatra in the same hour. A+
