If you like Irish pubs for food & beer, then this is worth a visit, in Soho. We had the baby rack of ribs, and they were really nice !!! why don't you try ???

This is a great pub with more TVs than most in HK and quite a bit of seating for the area. The beer selection is great and the burgers are definitely the best on the menu. The other appetisers and good are just average. If you are looking to watch some sports though, this is a great choice.

As an avid lover of the one and only original McSorley's in NYC, i went into this place wanting to hate it for stealing the name. After one very tasty Cottage Pie (aka Shepherd's Pie) and some cold, refreshing beers, I couldn't bring myself to say anything bad about it. It seems like a place I'd be a regular at... More

Fantastic beer list. Great traditional pub fare. Really good old school pub atmosphere. Bar girls get to know you and your drink very fast.

Been here a few times and love the atmosphere especially when the rugby is on! Great bar food recommend the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich - a weeks carbs in one sitting! Quirky spiral staircase to upper bar an loos that becomes quite entertaining as the evening progresses as the more squiffy cliental attempt it - especially those in high heels!... More

Good place for Sunday brunch. Try the Bloody Mary and eggs Benedict combo, but be sure to add a beer chaser. (A Wisconsin tradition.). Good atmosphere, live music sometimes. A genuinely nice pub.

Opens 11am, located Elgin Rd just to one side of elevator. Friendly staff, good beer and lime! Great food we had NZ steaks. A great experience in HK at a fair price

Stopped by McSorley's for a round of drinks recently and had a decent time. McSorley's Ale (HK$58) and a glass of red wine (HK$56) were both ok (rating 3 of 5). Service wasn't bad but staff seemed disinterested. Atmosphere at McSorley's is quite suitable for watching sports events. We caught the second half of the South Africa vs. Argentina rugby... More
