kind of like a soccer pub put into a house that just didn’t give in to the genericization of pasadena. that is very good. so many chains are invading the town, but this gem has great selection. very hard for me to decide what to have there! good british pub food.

Un pub style Anglais qui fait assez authentique. La sélection de bières européennes est tout simplement incomparable dans ce coin de la Californie. Quelques généralités s’infiltrent mais on y trouve son compte assez facilement. Le staff est majoritairement connaisseur et la cuisine à la hauteur des attentes pour ce genre de pub. Un incontournable à Pasadena.
Located in Old Pasadena, this is a little hole in the wall of a place with super creeky floors and probably lots of stories from the past. The setup is rather weird, and it takes a minute to get bearings. Really small bar in the back, but there was an eclectic taplist with some very interesting beers (Old Guardian 2012 on tap, Logsdon Stout). Bartender was really friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were disgusting, and because of this, I didn’t bother trying the food. Prices were a bit steep, but not overwhelming. A fair experience.

Visited on a Friday afternoon. Nice classic pub interieur, small outdoor "beer garden" Fast and nice service, great taplist - mostly Californian locals and Belgians. I focused on Californian locals. Value is definitely okay (don’t know too much about what is customary in this area). Definitely recommendable!
Not bad. The bar area has an odd smell, perhaps of lye. The outdoors is adequate. The beer list is very good, though perhaps a little less big into Western beers as it might be. Sane volume. Friendly staff. Strong wifi. Passable. Don’t get the rating here at all though....
Visited on a Monday. LA Beer Week so a lot of Stone stuff on draft. Wide selection, and the bartender/servers were all very friendly. Bottle list isn’t even remotely up to date. Prices seem ridiculously high on most draft beers, vaguely reasonable on others, pretty decent for bottles. Patio seating was nice.
