Iíve been by here a dozen times but never noticed it. The one time I did go in was on a "pub crawl" of Claremont after hitting I&I, Dale Bros, and Claremont Craft Ales and being dropped off in downtown.

I definitely get a fancy restaurant feel from this place. Dark lighting, quiet, candles on the tables, expensive drinks... not my kind of place. However they did have an interesting tap or two including some Craftsman beer that I hadnt heard of before. The bartender was nice enough. Didnt spend a lot of time here as the place was full and I think we were taking up room at the bar.

Maybe Iíll try eating here next time I go to Rhino or Cheese Cave.

The Press is a small restaurant/bar located in downtown Claremont. The area itself is fairly quaint and the home of the highly regarded Claremont Colleges. The crowd at The Press varies quite a bit from the young college students to older folks who live in the area (or are simply visiting). While the appearance of the place is somewhat "high end" the feel is fairly casual. There are people who are dressed up for a night out and those that are simply in jeans. The restaurant prides itself on healthy food options and the menu reflects it. They have quite a large number of vegetarian (and even some vegan) dishes which are wonderful. I often opt for the Vegetarian Thanksgiving meal. The tap list is far from extensive, usually about 8 taps which have some standards such as Stella and Guiness, but generally also some beers from Stone and a few local breweries such as Dale Brothers and Skyscraper (among others). They also have Chimay White on tap which I donít see all that often around here. There are some bottled beers and ciders as well such as Chimay Blue, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Sam Smith, Paulaner, and others (you can check out the list on their website). The service is generally pretty good, but I have had some questionable moments over my visits. They are always courteous, but sometimes a bit slow. Overall, itís one of my favorite places to go for a nice meal because I know that Iím going to get good food, good service, and if I want a decent beer, I can get that too.
