    The English Breakfast here puts many greasy spoons and pubs in London to shame. Really dirty bacon. Like it should be.

    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.

    Locals love this British watering hole with soul. Their traditional fish and chips are a favorite and the curries are the real deal.

    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!!!

    Classic English pub a block from the cliffs. Stop in for apps and a Smithwicks next time you're craving some good comfort food.

    If you tire of ordering the fish ’n’ chips, for another taste of Britain give the traditional curry a try.

    The service was very minimal, and only somewhat friendly. I had their crumpets, which seems quite good. I also had the fish cakes, which were nicely soft on the inside and crispy on the outside
