In Oregon, you canít find a better beer selection (Rose & Raindrop used to compare but has gotten disorganized last few months), nor better fish & chips in Portland. Yeah weekends get rowdy, but in a congenial, British way; and smoke smell is a problem (afternoons the best. Very British in apearance, comfortable (despite the chairs.) But the beers-- wide slection, good representation from smaller breweries, 4 or 5 casks-- and good liquor selection as well.

Great atmosphere, dark lighting, lots of old wooden benches and tables. Three-sided bar that on the night I was there was covered in firkins for a winter cask festival. It was still decked out in Halloween lighting despite the fact that it was late November. Lots of beer decor, great tap list, and knowledgable table servers. I didnít eat, but the menu looked like typical British pub food. Awesome place.

Good Lord! This is it! A fabulous selection of beer. A knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. A fun, almost rowdy atmosphere. Cheers to Don Younger! I felt like Ray Liotta in Field of Dreams. "Hey, is this heaven?" No. Itís Portland.

This place is fucking killer, the best beer bar in Portland. Dennis is the best bartender in town. Anything and everything comes here first. Great place to get a new seasonal

Nice British-style pub with a descent selection of rotating local micros. Knowledgeable bartenders, but less than attentive waitresses.

A really great place, not obsenely sterile like many diverse watering holes but still has its share of stuck up college kids. The collar is definitely tinted blue here but the beer is golden. Didnít have any food but the menu looked appealing. Belmont Station sits across a little indoor alley so the influence canít be bad.

Great place to unwind and play darts and have some great beers on tap. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The food is typical pub fare. Burgers and sausage and things of that nature. The do have some english dishes like bangers and english eggs. They have 5 cast beers, all of which are wonderful. If staying in Portland for a few days, This place is certainly worth checking out

I think that this place is maybe a bit over-rated because of itís folklore w/i the Portland community. This particular time that I was there, they had a good amount of beers that i had never had, but wasnít really interested in either. Some decent casks available, but the biggest dissapointment was with the bottle selection. I thought with Belmont right across the way, that they could at least match what was there, but no dice. My server was a little uncute goth girl, but very freindly. The Banger plate I had was delicious and on par with what i would expect in the UK.

Visted in Aug í05. Neat British Pub feel with wooden tables/booths. Our waitress was up there with one of the worst I can remember in my life (an Iím pretty low-maintenance). Took 10 minutes for her to acknowledge our presence. She didnít know much about the beers or what was available. I ordered a 4 or 5 set sampler. She came back to me once and said beerX isnít available, Iíd pick another, sheíd come back 5 minutes later stating the other beer is not available either. Keep in mind it wasnít even busy. This shit drives me nuts because I busted my ass working in a restaurant for a number of years and this service was unaccepatable. When all was settled, I got to sample a decent bunch of beers. They have a great selection of local US Micros, regional seasonals and good imports like Samuel Smiths. My food was solid, one half of my wifeís sandwich got served with not one, but 5 little hairs on the bread. Gross. We didnít bother tellling the waitress for obvious reasons. The capper was that they charged me for one of the beers they were out of and it took another 15 minutes to get that issue resolved. All in all, service on this particular day, god awful. The beer- good, The food - solid, when it doesnít have hairs it it. I would like to come back to this place one day when the service is actually decent.
