I wanted to tour the Sony exhibits, my wife didn't, so we compromised and had Shepherd's Pie, pizza, and beer. The food, especially the pizza, was very good and the servers were friendly and paid attention to our needs. The pub was a surprise to find in the Ginza but a nice break from Japanese food and I think the... More

I just had a glass of champagne while my boyfriend was exploring Sony Building. Although I was sitting in the non-smoking area I was not immune from all the smoke. I guess it is not only for this pub but anywhere in Japan, smoking in a covered area and where food is served is ok which I do not find... More

We went for lunch which meant we only had limited set menu options. We both had the roast beef. The gravy on the beef was very yummy, the set menu comes with bread to mop up any excess. Drinks were a bit expensive and there is no sepparation between the non-smoking and smoking sections. Overall, decent for a quick lunch... More

British pub, the oldest in Japan, for a dinner party. It feels and looks like inside a train. Guinness, Fish and Chips, and other dishes were good. You can smoke in some areas of this restaurant.

Stumbled on this pub located in Ginza area. It is small and cozy. We requested non smoking, but even where we were seated we got smoky smell. Food was excellent. I think a Coke was around $5. Servers efficient.

This is a very cosy nice pub located in the Sony tower and has a good selection of drinks. Ideal after having seen all new electronics on the floors above.

After touring the Sony building my husband spotted the menu and we decided to give it a try since we were starving and wanted a light meal (after having a large lunch earlier). I had a club sandwich -chicken, bbq sauce lettuce tomato came with very thin fries. Pretty good. My husband had a margarita pizza and he enjoyed it.... More

Used to be the place to go for a few beers when shopping around the Ginza. Tried a couple of times this visit and each time the service was very poor. Barely a grunt from the barman who appeared more interested in chating to his mate rather than taking care of the paying customers. The pricing is a little on... More
