Downtown old Pasadena staple that is a cramped English deli (?) when you walk inside. Larger outside patio. Pretty hefty draft list with a focus on Belgian beer, which was odd given the English food. But this bar is really the place to find the elusive Craftsman beers from Pasadena, which tend to be very good. The bar recently had Van Steenberge contract brew for them a custom house beer now added into ratebeer. They offer tasting flights, which was nice. Service was quick and attentive. My only qualm was that when our flight was given to us, the server did not tell us which beer was which and did not know so had to go back and check. Just a tad annoying. Fun, simple, relaxing place. Didn’t try the food. They apparently also do pitchers here if you there for happy hour.

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

Visited on a trip to Pasadena with my girlfriend. First of all, love the location: just off a cool central street of Old Pasadena. The interior winds with old-school English charm, in a sort of dingy way. We finally made it back to the bar, which was a tiny little thing with no signs and no easy wayy to discern what their current tap list was. Their tap list was decent -- I especially liked how they featured both Saisons as well as local specialties like Craftsman. However, something about this place just work for me any more than a good neighborhood bar would. Its just a bit sloppy -- perhaps intentionally -- and for that reason I just couldn’t seem to get into LB’s, with girlfriend at side. I’d go back if in the area though.

Not that big a place which made it very busy when we visited on a Wednesday night - quite late. Interior is wood and stone with lots of beer memorabilias on the walls - a weird mixture of English and Belgian, as if it doesn’t know which direction it wants to go. I had 8 new beers before I had to capitulate because of jetlag - but I could have had more from the bottled card. We had quite attentative service at the table, and the prices were reasonable. Didn’t eat.

Beer haven. Great selection of draft beers including Belgians and the place to go to try Craftsman brews. Watch out for their special festivals (especially the Belgian) where they’ll feature a certain style for a couple of weeks. Food is decent, service was lethargic.

Nice looking place, but I wasn’t that impressed after all I’d heard. The waitress was kind of rude, the prices were high, and the selection was just ok, at least among places that actually seem to care about their selection. It’s cute that they serve their sampler size in a miny Chimay glass, but that doesn’t make up for the fact that their Celebrator on tap is obviously NOT Celebrator, or at least it is the most messed up Celebrator I’ve ever tasted. I’ll take so many Chicago bars over this one: Hopleaf, Maproom, Clark St. Ale House, Delilah’s.

I love this place. Football on the telly. Great beer. First place where I had Craftsman hefe. But it is really lived in. Could do with a re-fresh and the food is average.

Solid tap list ranging from uninteresting macros like Interbrew to Craftsman, Sierra Nevada, Aventinus, Youngs, Stone, and also some Belgians that you don’t often see on tap. The prices were a bit higher on average than other places that I visited in California.
The staff was friendly and attentive, some didn’t really know what was available though which seems like a common problem as a number of beers that I asked for weren’t available.
The food was fairly typical English stuff that I don’t often care for. I went with a curry dish that was pretty solid though and paired it with the Craftsman IPA.
They also had a wide range of glassware for sale in the front.

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.
