Finally tried this place out, and liked it okay. Just a stone's throw from the beach in Capitola village, BA serves the usual variety of pub food, including bangers and mash, shepard's pie, fish and chips, etc. Chicken curry dish and Cornish pastie were both decent but not too inspiring. Drink selection is very good - you can of course... More

My family and I came in for some drinks and an appetizer on our journey through the village and ended up staying for hours! It was Halloween weekend and I must say my favorite outfit was Leila the bartender!! We are Futurama fans! It happened to be Karaoke night and there were so many really talented people performing! We had... More

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning and the place was packed! Got seated right away however and had a margarita in our hands within 5 minutes. Football was on so it was pretty loud but the service was great and the food was pretty good as well. Don't expect anything fancy here but a good stop for a... More

I have been telling everyone who would listen that the hamburger served at BA is far and away the best I have had. This review was met with varying levels of disbelief. This weekend, we took my future son-in-law there, and was given wide-eyed thumbs up! He would have said something, but his mouth was full of hamburger.... I can't... More

Great location right on the beach with only a few trees, a little swath of grass and cold showers for surfers between this "pub" chain and the sand-ocean. Inside-outside seating; space heaters for the inevitably chilly evenings. Burgers, Bangers, Fish and Chips, Pot Pies, (no squab) Irish Stew, Puddings, a multitude of different beers, every mixed drink known to man.... More

Had been in town for several days staying a block from the beach. Stopped in a for a beer and some fish and chips to go one afternoon. Nice friendly staff, good beer and beverage options, and the food was good.

Just had a fun once there. Great service and the food was good. Fish and chips particularly good. The only downside was the Yorkshire puddings which were apparently more like muffins. Other than that a good trip.
