68 AMBIANCE 4/5 SERVICE 8/10 SELECTION 12/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 5/10 OVERALL 10/20
A good selection of British beers, including plenty of Fullers goodies. The service was excellent, though we were sat at the bar, which always helps in my experience. A little bit on the pricey side, $15 for a bottled Bitter and Twisted and a draught London Pride.
Now my little gripes. I am British, I know fine well what a British pub is like, I also know what British food is about, and Shepherd’s Pie is not made with beef, it is made with lamb. Also, as a Scot, if you are going to have male servers wearing kilts, at least try not to make them the cheap crappy kind - you know the ones I mean, that look like a bath towel.
Other than my gripes though, it is a decent enough place for a drink, and I imagine it would be good fun when really rowdy.
