“Good dive bar with very decent grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Felt like having a few pints on Friday and first went to Dogfish Head nearby, but you couldn't even get a spot standing near the bar. Then I remembered seeing Public House 7 a few blocks down the road. Obviously, these two are different kind of restaurants, but I was well impressed by Pub №7. First of all, great food. I hax chili cheese fries and Chicken & Mushroom Vol Au Vent (which was awesome).
As far as the beers go, I was satisfied with the selection, but it wasn't spectacular. I mainly stuck with Guinness and occasional Boddington, everything else was unimpressive.
It was all going well until live music started. The singer guy was downright horrible and that cleared the place really fast. They need to screen their performers more carefully. Othewise, a great place and I'll be back.

“Great local watering whole, better than usual bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

great neighborhood bar with good beers and outdoor seating. Food is pretty good but a bit pricy. English favorites.

“Good food, good beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Visited the restaurant primarily to have some British beers, as they have one of my favorites - Boddington's - on tap. I tried the chicken curry, which was not very curry-ish. It seems that much of the spiciness came from black pepper. As to the atmosphere - it does, somewhat, resemble a British pub, but it's not as inviting as the real thing. I'll give it another try, though.

“Great restaurant, decent bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This place has all the usual British food such as bangers and mash and scotch eggs which is great. The bangers and mash is actually really good here. The bar is a little dingy and could really use some cleaning up. Its nice because the bar and restaurant are completely separate. The bar being in the back of the building and the restaurant being in the front.

“Best meal in three weeks in the usa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Thank god we found this place. We have been subjected to appalling food for weeks, our son finally hassled us into finding somewhere with "bangas and mash". Exceptional service and food, although we have had so much terrible food we may be overrating it!! Tastes like something you would make at home that hasn't then been put into a deep fryer... Yum. Thanks guys hopefully in the next four weeks we will find more like you!
