Cool English style pub and tavern with decent menu with burgers and sandwiches. Tap list was pretty impressive. Large with focus on local beers. Sculpin and Pliny the Elder on tap with special Ballast Point and AleSmith taps. Decent bottle list. Ran through it but didnít see their own beer Churchills Finest from Lost Abbey next door. Got an AleSmith Decadence 2006 to share for $20. They allowed us to get 4oz tasters of whatever. Appetizer food was pretty good. Homely laid back atmosphere. They even have HP sauce which I havent seen since I was in Australia. Draft list prices were reasonable. $5 for most stuff going up to $8 for Jolly Pumpkin. Staff was very friendly to just straight up hilarious. Very inviting feel. Sweet local dive type of place.

This is my favorite local. They treat you like family, and really mix up the beer list.
Their pub faire is excellent, and they have some good values on their specials.
I think itís telling that Iíll drive 15 additional minutes to go to Churchills when I want to meet up with friends, and Iíll pass by 4-5 acceptable options.

a good bar but overrated. Selection was good,service was good, the beer was bigger than average. The place was a bit snug. Lots of older guys about. The beers did not all taste right, whether its the lines or the age of what was on tap. Bottle selection was decent. A big drop coming from Stone, but different choices and more of a neighbourhood good beer bar.

Expecting the usual range of English taps so this was a big surprise. Of the 50 taps only about 6 or 8 are big brands, then itís down to the craft beer with some really rare choices. Itís rare that I can walk into a SoCal bar and find 15 or so choice on tap that I havenít tried. It got busy because I was there during the Stone festival. Staff are cool, food is English, decor is semi-English (pool and darts). I wish this was my local.

I sandwiched this place between visits to Stone and Lost Abbey. Those other two places made this seem a bit dingy in comparison, but I didnít mind that. I actually liked the old school pub atmosphere. Its located right off a very busy street with not much parking. The service was friendly and knowledgable. The beer list was very good. It seems like this place is more for the regular locals, not a destination for tourists like me.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening. Smallish bar. Maybe a dozen (15 tops) seats at the bar. Big, open dining room off to the right when you walk in. Amazing taplist. 52 total with two cask pours. Kickass! Proper glassware. Reasonable pricing. Friendly and attentive bartender (Tom). $2 tacos on Tuesday night sure didnít suck. Killer, killer place.
