Had a great lunch here! Angus Burgers were huge & delicious! We were there during "SantaCon", so it was loud that day, but the wait staff was great in getting us served. We'll eat here again.

We stopped here to get out of the cold, and figured it would be basic mid-town bar food. A nice surprise. The food is high-end British pub fare that was fresh, plentiful, and remarkably good. Try the chicken pot pie or the pulled pork. Both were terrific for the money. Only disappointment was the lack of serious options for English... More

Very inviting atmosphere, but as soon as we walked in we were seated at a tiny little table in the corner, facing a wall, with a direct hit of cold air every time the door opened. The waitress was short and too the point and lacked any form of personality or pleasantries. The food however was very good, a little... More

A friend recommended it. The beers were cold, the burgers and sandwiches were above normal. We had a window seat, which was great for people watching.

Came here for brunch / lunch with a few teammates. (A total of 7 people) The service was fairly slow and not very hospitable. The food wasn't hot coming out of the kitchen. It tasted okay, but definitely not good enough to bring me back. Overall a relatively disappointing visit.

Four of us went here based on our hotel location. We asked for a place where locals go for drinks after work. When we got there it was not too busy and was pretty quiet. I was expecting it to be busier. We stayed for one drink and then left. Good drink selection and if your looking to stop in... More

Not a bad choice for a quick and reasonably priced meal. It is only a few blocks from Madison Square Garden and on the way to the theatre district from Penn Station. The burgers were very good as was the service.

We stopped in for a Friday night supper and saw that the place was full. The gals at the front desk noted there was a wait for upstairs but that they also have a downstairs bar area and we could eat there providing we were done before the private booking started. Great. We knew our meals would come out quickly... More
