At one point The Horse Brass was the hang out bar for my group of friends. We either started the night, ended the night or spent the night here. Then we left our 20s and the visits became fewer and further apart and then for some reason ended. Last week, several of us returned and we were very happy. The... More

After four months in England, we wanted to enjoy a bit of nostalgia on our fourth anniversary, so we went to Horse Brass Pub. Great atmosphere. It felt like we were back in London at one of the many pubs we enjoyed. Fabulous array of beers and ales. The pub food was excellent. London didn't serve halibut (as Horse Brass... More

Halibut is used for the fish and chips and the fries are hand cut and not frozen. This fish is lightly beer battered with a slightly crispy crust, firm and not greasy. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 the best I found the fish to be an 8. Typical English Pub menu. About 50 beers and ciders... More

We love the horse brass! We visit every time we're in Portland. They have an excellent beer selection, which changes often and their fish and chips are the best we have ever had, East or West Coast! But the atmosphere is what really gets you, awesome English pub style with a great vibe!

Don’t get me wrong, this is a great place with good ambiance, and I highly recommend it. The service we had was excellent and the waiter congenially sparred with my questions and comments, remaining in good humor, while my poor wife was embarrassed to death. We saw none of the bad (actually awful) food and service of some of the... More

We came here because many of our beer guides said it was a classic. I would agree with the classic part. It's an older establishment. They have many great beers to choose from but don't go there hungry. I was disappointed that the food wasn't better. It truly is dive bar kind of food.

We were in Portland, Oregon two weeks ago. My niece just turned 21 years-old, so she wanted to go to a pub. We went online and checked out the reviews for the Horse Brass Pub - some reviews were so-so, some were good. Decided to go for it. Actually went there for the brew, but ordered a little food too....

My husband and I eat here about once a week-- LOVE staff--their knowledge and service. LOVE beer/cider selections. Used to love the food-- but something has happened-- not sure what, so, the quality is not what it was and the consistency of product is not there. We used to be certain we'd at least get a decent meal if not... More

Not much else I can add to the other reviews. The selection of beers on tap here is really amazing. Always something new and interesting...though I normally order the same thing since this is one of the few places in Oregon to find IPAs from Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa CA—Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder are really fantastic....
