Description: We are a cosy pub that sells great tasting Chilean micro-brewery beers and we serve tasty food that goes well with the beers. We offer traditional Fish'n Chips, Hamburgers or you can try the Chilean Chorrillana. These meals and snacks, + others, are only served after 19:00, Monday to Friday, all day Saturdays Between 12:30 - 15:30 we offer a "menu of the day" for the Chilean office workers. We have outdoor seating, great in summer, and inside is a smoke free area. We show many international sports: AFL, NRL, Cricket, Rugby Union, NHL, NFL, MLB, Premier League. Directions: Avda. Providencia 2528.We are down one block from Tobalaba Metro and close to the corner of Holanda and Providencia. We are not easy to find when you are standing on the main street but if you look for a tall palm tree next to a shop called " Farmacias del Dr. Simi" then you will see an entrance to a small galleria. Walk down into the galleria entrance and you will see a terrace with table and chairs. These tables and chairs belong to us. We are directly to the right of the entrance and down a set of steps. We hope to see you sometime soon.

“Great selection of beers, fish n chips like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Come to this pub if you want a great selection of Chilean artisenal beers (plus a couple of Australian and English), friendly staff and the best fish and chips in town. Shane the owner will ensure you get the right beer for your taste and there is always something new for the beer snobs amoung us.

“Limited Selection, but Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The menu here is quite limited, but the food is tasty. The burger was quite large and delicious and the fish for the fish and chips could have easily been for 2 or 3 people. HAs a dark, pub atmosphere, but good for a simple get together with friends. The locations is a little tricky to find. Once you enter into the gallery you have to go around the corner and downstairs.

“Astonishing fish and chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Its an underground restaurant, kinda small, but with a nice English atmosphere. The beer selection has a lot of beers (mainly microbreweries of Chile) and a lot of typical drinks. The food selection wasn't varied at all, but the fish and chips were stunning. I will absolutely go back.

“English style pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Excellent beer selection, but no Guinness unfortunately which is no fault of their own as I believe there's a customs problem. Classic English pub style. Loved the fish and chips. Remember though this is a pub. Don't come expecting anything else.

“Proper Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is not a place to take a girl on a first date - well, only if you are not planning to have a second date. It's a pub. It's dark, basic decor, basic menu, awesome, awesome beer selection. Even though the food menu is limited, it is great food. Proper wings (as in spicy - chileans don't eat spicy food), and incredible fish and chips (I highly recommend it), probably the only place in Chile that knows how to make it, great hamburger too. The micro-beer scene is still taking off in Chile but this pub somehow manages to have most of the brands that you don't find in stores. Best beer I've had in Chile. And great prices. I guess part of the success comes from the fact that the owner, who also serves a generous rhum&coke (see pic), was born in Australia and is of Irish descent - I mean, how perfect is that?
