Sooo GOOD!

I love the dark - kinda like a dive bar feeling of the restaurant. The staff is always helpful when Im my usual indecisive self. Ive spent the last 2 years spending most of my time in the UK... and these pasties are as close to the real thing as you're going to get! My husband is from Devon and... read more

Very unique option for a meal. The pasties range from ok to great with the Cajun chicken being my favorite. The bar always has unique beer options as well. This is a great spot to start the night with friends or even a casual date spot.

Place is great for beers and drinks, but I did not like the food at all. Jalapeño fries just had chopped peers on top, most were too greasy and the others were rock hard. Tried the peppersteak pasty with Stilton. Crust was not flaky or buttery, more like generic roll dough. Ingredients inside were well cooked and had lots of... More

An interesting atmosphere, not really like I would imagine a British Pub to be. It was dark and the music was kind of loud. The service wasn't bad nor good per say. The food however was excellent and was inexpensive for what you received. I would go again and ask to sit outside.

Absolutely love everything here; I've never been disappointed. They have a great vegetarian selection, which I love. Come here for a hearty meal and delicious dessert... try the Banoffee or Sticky Toffee Pudding! Pictured here are the Vegetarian Tikka Masala and Bangers and Mash.

The carne asada pasty is one of the best meals I have had in years. No kidding. In the last few years I've visited multiple countries and 42 states, and this is one meal that really sticks out in my mind. I actually dropped it back on my plate out of shock from the incredible taste of the first bite.... More

We nearly gave up on finding this place - we found the address but the front of the restaurant is located on the side of the strip mall so we nearly missed it. Then when we pulled up outside we thought it must be closed as you can't see in the windows - but then spotted some people eating at... More

The favorable reviews, and the recommendations of my hotel staff, led me to try out this unique bar and restaurant. I found the rave reviews to be correct; a large menu of many types of pasties is a success. I also found the house salad to be fresh, well prepared, and well presented. Our server was very helpful and pleasant.... More

Went there after a long day of tailgating and football. The place was packed, but we were able to find a table for six. Nice selection of tap beer and select house coctails. Friends orderd the largest tab beer which I believe was 32oz. Service was spotty, but alright for a busy Sunday night. If you are looking for a... More
