“Don't miss out on this great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Wow, our waitress Annie was terrific to start. Then the food was so so good and we all ordered something different. The prices were so reasonable too!! After dinner comes dessert and oh my gosh it was out of this world. Its called Sticky Toffee pudding. All I can say is you have got to try it!! We will for sure be back....

“good place to go for British atmosphere and food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We went here for a small dinner and to experience something different. Is fun once you understand the British English they speak here. At first it made my husband uncomfortable because he could not understand. English is not his first language. The only problem was that the waiter thought it was funny to tease him about this and that is wrong. You do not make fun of your customers if you want them to come back. I assume the waiter was american so why did he not switch to american after the first problem. This made the experience not as good as it could have been. The food was very good. The fish excellent and fresh. The pub was clean and the bathrooms small. If we make it back to Monterey we may try them again.

“Great pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Went here twice in our visit. Once for dinner and drinks, and once just for a pint. Food was really good and service was good too. Fun place in Monterey.

“Fish and Chips!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stopped here to grab a quick bite to eat and a cold drink. We ordered the fish and chips and we were not disappointed in the least bit. The batter was light and airy and the fish was fresh and the fries were very tasty. The wait staff was very friendly and service was on point, we did come before the dinner rush so it was not packed. I would definitely eat here again the next time I am in Monterey.
