Restaurant details
Good for: Scenic view
Dining options: Late Night
Description: Fabulous fish ‘n chips. A great selection of beers. Best location on the quieter side of Fisherman’s Wharf overlooking Monterey harbor. What more could you expect from this established British pub?Try a welcoming staff and charming atmosphere replete with brick floors, stone covered walls, a magnificent grand bar – all designed to bring out the cockney in everyone. The light and airy interior is ringed with large windows for unbeatable views of the harbor. Outside, beautiful patios with fire pits invite relaxation as sea lions bark and sailboats glide by.

Reviewed February 21, 2014

While visiting San Francisco we drove around to Monterey Bay and had lunch at the London Bridge pub. It is a fun little place with a great view and good drinks. The food was OK.

“Great view, so-so food”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My husband and I chose this restaurant because we were traveling with our 2 dogs and they allow pets on the patio. This is a huge plus! The view from outside was beautiful, even though it was sprinkling. I ordered a burger and it tasted like a frozen patty. My husband ordered the pulled pork sandwich and it was "ok". But the staff was friendly and attentive for being the only guests outside.

“Great lunch spot on the wharf”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stopped here for lunch - had a great meal. Fish and chips were quite nice. Large piece of fish. Wife's fish bites were quite good and she said the clam chowder was wonderful. English pub décor inside. We enjoyed outdoor dining overlooking the yacht harbor. Generous portions. Full menu. Wait staff attentive. Prices reasonable.

“Overpriced for the average food.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Stopped here on our first night in Monterey, and wasn't impressed. The waitress suggested fish and chips as it was an "award winner". Couldn't have been much of a contest, as the one piece of fish they give you wasn't anything special, and highly overpriced for what you received, ( of coarse they don't tell you, you only get one piece of fish). Sat outside to try and enjoy the outdoors/fireplace seating, but with all the smokers, had to quickly eat and get out. The bathrooms looked like they hadn't been touched all day, over flowing trash cans and gross conditions. Will not be returning to this place

Hello. We are disappointed to see that you did not enjoy your visit here at LBP. Our fish and chips are an award winner and locally recognized by many as the best in Monterey. We apologize if you received a small portion size, but we will take this into consideration for the future! We apologize for the smokers outside, there is not usually as many as you had experience. We have taken care of the problems in the bathrooms but seeing as we have a lot of traffic in here each day sometimes they can become a bit untidy! We hope that you will return in the future in order to allow us to remedy your previous experience. We appreciate your feedback because it helps us become a better restaurant to serve our guests to the best of our ability. Best, John Eales (Owner)
