UJ’s is a dive, but it has a great selection of brews at reasonable prices. You’re not going to find too many bars in the area that regularly stock Russian River sours. The wings are also pretty good. If you’re looking to impress a date, go somewhere else. This is where you go with your buddies after work to try some serious beer.
Excellent wings, and that comes from an Anchor Bar veteran. Nice neighbourhood pub, good service with a smile, and I was happy to stay with my Fuller’s extra special for the evening. Jeepers, look at all that fancy stuff listed as Available. I’ll just have to go back, that’s all there is to it! Visited on May 17, 2010.
Have been here several times. The tap list is ever changing but certain staples remain like franziskaner, and numerous victory brews. Everything else usually changes. Six packs are steady but bottles generally reflect the season (lost abbey, russian river, rogue) which is great as there is nowhere else in the area for such variety. The regulars aren’t obnoxious, the music and televisions are never overwhelming, and the food is great. Easily the best wings in the area. They occasionally have some pretty nice events, give aways, promos etc. Worth a visit.
First time at this place. Pretty bumpin’ little local joint. The tap list was decent, but the bottles were impressive. Port, Abbey, and Russian River. Hell yeah! I like that the music wasn’t up too loud. The staff was friendly and very helpful, willing to shoot the shit. Didn’t eat anything but the food smelled great. The locals were a bit brash, but once we got settled it was fine. The prices were decent for a bar, for sure. Definitely worth checking out.
A nice British pub if there ever was one this side of the pond. Excellent food, daily specials, and unquestionably the best wings for miles around. Barkeepers are knowledgeable and amicable and will be your best friend if you have any taste for good beers. Without a doubt the best selection of beers in the area on tap or bottled French, Belgian, English, and a plethora of local brews to choose from. Can’t beat happy hour either which regularly features great prize giveaways just for drinking a good beer. Awesome Pub overall.
Very nice atmosphere with a very personable staff. Food is stellar and always complimented by a solid deal. Bartenders are very knowledgeable about their extensive beer selection which changes regularly with select steady beers. Very British in the way of sports and atmosphere. Prices are acceptable due to the service, cleanliness and beer selection. Regulars are typically nice and amicable. Also, wide selection of bottled beer.

Been going here for years. Good selection of tap beers with a slant towards English ales, though you can usually find a good IPA on tap. Last saturday they had a Double IPA fest with 12 BIG IPAs on tap. Quick tap rotation. Excellent bottle selection - not huge, but some very nice selections. Food is standard pub food but is very good pub food - especially the wings. Note that it’s in Montgomery County, so it can be smokey compared to the Manayunk Union Jack’s.
Definitely a locals hang-out, which means even on a weeknight UJ’s may be crowded. Beer selection is impressive, local, regional and national micro’s, plus English, German and even French beer on draft. Bottle line-up was diverse as well. Beer prices were a little high but affordable. Bar service was above average and the bar itself was clean and well staffed. There is an outdoor deck, plenty of English football scarves hanging behind the bar (I’m guessing you can watch soccer there), booths, and tables inside. Two warnings, the bar is cash only, and some of the locals came off to me as knuckleheads. Damn surburbanite hipster-doofuses won’t keep me out of there though!
