Ok place. Dark colors but big windows keep it airy. 11 seats at bar. 11 tables with one large one at one end. 2 tvs and a projection screen. Service was fine but it was early afternoon on a Tuesday do they had no reason not to. Ok beer selection. Not gonna wow a regular rater. But you find something ok hear.

Located on the less traveled (by beer people, anyway) side of the freeway. British pub styled place with a couple of cask handles. They had some Moonlight beers, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, and the usual selection of Guinness and import light lagers, they did have a Belgian beer or two, though. Service was quite friendly and the prices are pretty good. Could see myself hanging out here if I lived nearby.

Oct 2012. Visited after RR brewpub. The place was very quiet so the staff had quite some time to talk with us about their beers and food. They have 2 cask ales all the time, couple of regular taps (Racer 5, British beers and Stella Artois at the time) and 2 taps including the latest local beers. Apparently they were the first on the server 101 North Brewing Co beers so I had their Heroine IPA. The cask ales were in good condition. They do have some bottles as well including German(!) beers such as Spaten Maximator. Reasonable prices. After RR brewpub this was a nice place to settle down.

Nice Pub overall. Good is small beer selection. Food is okay for a pub - nothing special.

nice place, owner was very accomendating & personable. Decent draft list, prickly pear saison from New Belgium was quite good. Seems like second best option in Santa Rosa after RR

One of my favorite local places to get a beer. Especially on Tuesday Nights when they have a cask and featured tap or two. Regular beer lineup is mostly relatively local craft brews with some interesting imports (always including a belgian) and a few boring things (Stella, Guinness). Food is typical british but all nicely seasoned and well done.

Find me here on Tuesdays for Cask Night! The everyday selection is a limited but excellent array of mostly sessionable locals and imports. Menu highlights are excellent burgers, luscious Brussels sprouts, and occasionally meat stews that synergize brilliantly with the tangy mash. Clientele are largely regulars of the undouchey persuasion. Service is headlined, of course, by publican Paul.

Just saw that Joe rated this, and somehow it only had one rating. Why I hadnít is beyond me. Other than Russian River, this was the place I frequented most while in Santa Rosa. Set on the other side (west) of the 101 to RRís east side, itís a small pub that can maybe fit 60 people, which it does on live music nights. Thereís always soccer or rugby on the flat screens. The food is decidedly British--get the pasty with the brussel sprouts--very tasty. They usually have about 12 taps of UK and local craft beer, and one beer engine. The beer engine is always room temp, so if itís 80 in the bar, you have yourself one warm beer. Oh well. They never have RR on tap because, well, you can drive 5 minutes to get that. Prices are par for Santa Rosa. Paul is the owner, who is apparently a nephew to one of the great bars that RR now resides. Very friendly guy. Great place.

The tap selections here seem to be among the best in the county. Itís small, very friendly, clean, well lit, perfect little spot in the Railroad District.
