Everytime I visit Newport Beach, I never leave without having lunch or dinner here. It is by far the best pub I've ever been to in CA, and certainly one of the best I've been to, period. It's extremely reasonable in price, the portions are large, the ambiance is dark and mellow and comfortable (and they have patio seating which is more bistro-like), and most of all, the quality of food is stellar! The Shepherd's Pie is incredible; the fish and chips are light and fluffy; the stew will make you think you're in Ireland; the bangers with mustard are the perfect appetizer; the apple pie a la mode with caramel sauce is divine. But my absolutely favorite part? The bread! They serve soda bread, which tastes similar to a scone. My only wish is that they would warm their butter - but other than that, I've never had a single complaint, only compliments. Also, there is often live music with great cover bands. The energy is always positive and lively. It's absolutely the perfect way to spend ANY evening, and we had a memorable New Year's Eve there.
