“Best Pub In Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Classic pub that reminds me of Europe. Serves a large variety of European bears on Tap (including Hoeegarden, my favorite). The food is some of the best Irish Pub Food you can find. Delicious Shepards Pie and a great Happy Hour Menu. There is generally plenty of room and its one of the few bars where you can catch all of the English Premier League and MLS games. The bar generally gets packed with sounders fans during game time.

“Best pub in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Unlike most places that call themselves pubs, this is a true public house. Every time I go in it makes me want to go to Europe again. Relaxed crowd, good service and good food. Great place to watch a game.

“Nice Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've been here a couple of times and enjoyed both visits though it's never been for what I imagine they do best: soccer matches. I've seen live music here and liked it. Also went for happy hour once and thought that was a good experience too. Not a huge place. Very pleasant staff. Mixed crowds are welcome. Definitely will go again.

“Briliant Pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Excellent selection of draft beers, primarily English, with a rotating selection. Best Cottage Pie I've ever had (chunks of lean lamb!).

“The Place For Football (Soccer) Supports In Tacoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

When I first moved to Tacoma I instantly started looking for the best place to have a pint and watch my favorite football teams. I found Doyles and wont go anywhere else for a football match. Walking into the place really reminds me of places I went in the UK. Not the cheapest place, but it's not meant to be. It is still a good place to catch a bite and have a pint or two. Come on down and catch a game sometime.
