Horse Brass has a wonderful atmosphere, amazing fish & chips, and the best tap selection I have seen yet. However, their service is terrible. It seems not to be anyone’s fault, just seems they’re constantly understaffed.

Horse Brass is one of the leading reasons why Portland is the beer mecca of the USA. Steeped in history and tradition and soaked with beer culture. Long Live HBP

The Horse Brass is legendary in Portland, but I think its time has come and gone. With new beer pubs raising the Bar (Concordia) for pubs, food, beer and service quality; Horse Brass is being left in the dust…
On my last visit, I found the place a 1/8 full with dirty tables full of left over plates and glasses. Our server was rude and dismissive. We were told she was busy and we needed to hurry with our order. There was no one there! After spilling beer on the table, the floor and a friends coat with no apology, I really have very little good to say about service.
The beer menu’s where out dated and most items on the beer menu where not available.
The food has been hit and miss for some time. This visit solidified the downhill slide. The fish and chips were awful. The fish cold inside barely cooked. The fries were the end chips and scrapes of other batches. It appeared little effort was put into preparation or concern for quality.
While I have enjoyed the Horse Brass many times in the past with consistent quality in food, service and selection; I feel this establishment is missing their original mark.

This place has a great selection, mostly like the rotating selection of beers on tap. Tried the food on several occasions and its always good. Place can be incredibly smoking and the service can be terrible at times. Beer keeps bringing me back to this place.

this joint was my first beer stop on my PDX trip. i have mixed feelings about this place. old school western/british style pub. i sat down right next to a plate of half eaten food that never got taken away, but our bartender, hugh was was awesome, had plently of recommendations both travel and beer wise. very helpful cool dude. despite others comments, the beer (draught) selection was very wide, with alot of obscurities from smaller local breweries, pretty heavy on IPA’s and stouts though. the food looked like garbage and it looked like locals knew that for service they would have to initiate things themselves. all good, nice place. definitely a must stop.

I am originally from Portland, and every time I return my first stop is to The Horse Brass. Since the ban on smoking, I have made more of a point to visit. Though I love the ambiance of the place, it is sometimes a stretch for me to find a new beer on tap that I would like to try. At times, there have been multiple blown taps because the bar is too busy. The food is traditional pub fair, and the fries are hand-cut and quite good. I have found that Belmont Station, which is a few blocks away, occasionally has some of the same guests on draft, but is overall cheaper. I do not think a visit to Portland is complete without coming here.

I frequent the HBP quite often, because it’s honestly one of the best brewpubs in Portland if not THE best. The atmosphere alone is worth the trip: you walk in and feel like you’ve stepped into a real English pub, with tin beer signs all over the walls and people playing darts over in the corner. The service is great (although it’d be better if they had British accents!) and the food is incredible... especially the authentic fish and chips! But what really makes this a must-hit beer stop is the 50+ beers they have on tap! And with Belmont Station just a few blocks away, there’s absolutely no reason why anyone who loves beer shouldn’t stop here. It really is one of the reasons Portland is so synonymous with craft beer.

A nice place to visit. Being from out a town I a had a hard time finding it and parking is limited. The food was decent and the beer selection was great. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to enjoy some english style food and some great beer.

The food rating is for their fish and chips which are the best anywhere - I do not know about their other food. I really like that you can buy a micro brewed 10oz glass for only $2.25 to $2.75, since it often takes more than a sample for me to decide how much I like a beer. I do wish that they offered a taster tray with 6 to 10, 4oz glasses, but being able to get a free 1oz sample or 3, and the 10oz glasses nearly make up for that.
