Went in today to get out of the cold wind and were very pleased. Lucky to get the lady table right by the fireplace. Was a soccer game on so a little loud but great atmosphere. Lunch was delicious. Large portions, served relatively quickly but overall service was excellent. Food was hot, tasty and reasonably priced. Very enjoyable place to... More

If it looks like a British pub, smells like one and serves ten brands of beer, then you may feel at home here. Pub type menu but very well done and cheap as chips. If you are in the area, not crowded for lunch and really good fun. And who knows, Fergy might show up.

We are from out of town and visited this place on a Thursday evening following a conference. They were busy, but still managed to find us a table at 7:30 for 6. They had cold beer and a nice bar area in the basement to wait at. The food was worth the wait. I got one of my favorite Irish... More

Very large restaurant with an extensive menu. There are many small rooms so the atmosphere feels more intimate. Very large servings and tasty British style food.

Definitely a "locals" bar with many regulars but the staff were very friendly and welcoming to a new face. We enjoyed a couple of drinks and pleasant conversation with each other and our waitress. The bar had a lot of New England charm.

Such good food - huge portions with reasonable prices. Great whiskey selections. The pub holds it's own among the top Rittenhouse square picks - might even surpass, actually. If I lived in downtown Phila this would be my "local"

We stayed close to this establishment and wandered in three days in a row. Something about this bar just kept drawing us back. We loved the beers and the atmosphere.

Best part is there are multiple floors, so you can find a spot you like best. The food is good, not superb, but very acceptable. Good location.
