Went here with my girlfriend today. Sat out on the Patio. Beer list is out of date. Drank Craftsman Heavenly Hefe and Triple Sage, as well as Sprecher IPA Squared (all on tap). Waitress was very knowledgable, but a bit too pushy at first, and hard to find about the time to pay up. Food was simple, but good. Too hot to try pub fare, so we both had sandwiches. Great atmosphere inside. Nice selection.

I am sorry, but I don’t get this place. I felt border line unwelcome here. Bar staff wold not pour me a sample here (never been refused that before), over priced, with a relatively limited bottle and draft selection, typical Pasadena scene. IMHO skip and go to Stuffed for a good time. Not my cup of tea.

One of the best beer spots in the greater LA area. A great location in Old Town Pasadena with parking next door and a plethora of pedestrian shopping areas to keep the family occupied while I enjoy one of their many tasty selections. The list is always changing and they regularly feature SoCal brewers. Their regular festivals (IPA, Belgian, etc.) are a treat. Cool old building with a nice shady patio on a pedestrian alley - great for relaxing and people watching. Food is mostly typical British pub fare and quite good. Service is excellent and most servers are quite knowledgeable.

Every time I go to this place, I get a little jealous of people who live in Pasadena. I mean, it’s just an incredible local pub that somehow manages to approach beer like most fine restaurants treat wine. Proper football on the telly and hearty pub food. Now, if I could just find the wait staff...

I like that it’s accessible to those who prefer to walk or ride a bike to Old Town. Sitting out on the patio is a nice change of pace, although strikes me as odd for a pub. An impressive beer menu, but the price seems somewhat high for their rarer beers. A very nice diverse selection on tap, and seem to promote different local brewers like Craftsman. Postings about the cleanliness of this place made me hesitant about ordering anything, but my burger seemed to be alright.

This place is just boss. Dave is an outstanding owner - an Englishman with a world-class education in beer, a particular fondness for Belgians, and very beneficial relationships with many of the more prominent breweries in the BeNeLux area. Not afraid of brew festivals, unusually sized bottles, or maintaining a vintage menu. Very few places put this kind of effort into everyday restaurants/bars, especially in the greater LA area.

Basically one of the few "real British pubs" in SoCal. Nothing much matters beyond that.

So far, the best place to have a beer in the greater Los Angeles area. Old Town Pasadena is a pain in the ass to get to and drive around in, but there’s a parking garage literally next to this place and the price is reasonable. Lots of pretty young things of both sexes provide eye candy/foot traffic and this is really the sort of place where most of the patrons are drinking the good stuff. Only downside is that they are ALWAYS out of my first choice, no matter what it might be.

Best selection of unusual taps in LA. I’ve seen more than 10 Barley Wine’s at a time. Don’t drive out here from the beach though - it’s an expensive cab ride and you are sure to drink more than you intend.

A good beer list and an awesome selection of Craftsman. Good service and good food. Patio seating a plus. A great place overall.
