Visited December 8, 2013.
Walked over here from Ballast Point and Bottlecraft. It was pretty busy for a Sunday afternoon but there was a game on so I guess it makes sense. They have this little patio with about 2 small tables on it that was full of people presumably trying to stay away from the TVs. Inside is pretty open and while there were a bunch of people in there we still found two seats at the bar. Now, the atmosphere and service is nice (the servers took their sweet time getting to us but were nice) but the beer selection is garbage. They have about a dozen taps and only two of them were any good, those being Green Flash West Coast IPA and Ballast Point Big Eye IPA. I was hopeful that since this claims to be English and not Irish that it wouldnít have all the usual garbage but sure enough they had Boddingtons, Guinness, Harp, and other excellent choices. So yeah, I would not return here for the beer, maybe to watch a soccer game but if I wanted to do that I could go somewhere closer to home and not travel all the way to San Diego. Maybe I should have tried the food since I hear itís good but I didnít as I wasnít hungry.
Long story short: if youíre in Little Italy, want to watch a game, and get tired of the Italians but for whatever reason donít want to trek 5 blocks to Ballast Point then by all means stop here. Just donít expect a very impressive beer selection.

Great place to grab a pint and watch a game, sit and watch the passers-by, or eat some heart British fare. Get anything on the menu that involves being fried or wrapped in pastry, and you will not be disappointed.

British pub in the heart of Little Italy. I enjoy this place but certainly donít go for the beer selection. Nice setup (inside and outside) and the servers are all nice! Food is pretty decent, step up from the standard pub grub! Great place to watch soccer in town!

All British Pub, deco, music, waitreses and food. The bar is all English too, but the best here is the food. Have some fish and chips with a fullers esb on tap, you wont regret it!

Nice English pub. Pretty good selection of British drafts and other euros, including some I have never seen before. Good Scotch selection. Can be crowded, but worth it.

A nice British pub located in the Little Italy section of San Diego. A few blocks north of downtown, this is a cool place to watch English Soccer and have a few ESBís. The best Fish & Chips to go along with 20 or so drafts. A nice Scotch selection as well. Sit outside on a nice day.
