This place always has a great friendly feeling. Staff is always very nice and welcoming. They have a great beer selection and good pub food. It has an authentic british pub feeling because you will see families here on Friday night, dogs on the patio, and then the pub will be full of sports fans on the weekend.

Great place for beers & pub food. A warning: service can be slow, but the ambiance of the outdoor patio is great.

The Average score is just that -- an average of two locations. The Sierra Madre location is excellent. The Pasadena location was poor, only because of the terrible, terrible service.

At the Sierra Madre location, the staff was knowleagable about the beer, prompt and friendly. The food was good and atmosphere cool.

The Pasadena location was pretty much the opposite. Except that the food was pretty good. I had one of the meat pies and it was quite authentic-tasting. The beer selection is top notch. The goodness of the experience stopped there.

The waitress took our beer order, placed it at the bar and returned a bit later for our food order. Without the beer. We placed our food order and about 20 minutes later the food arrived. Without the beer. The waitress had not even stopped back by our table. We flagged down a food runner to ask about our beer. Finally the waitress returns with the beer. By that time we were almost halfway through with the meal. Now, keep in mind, it was not busy. Not remotely busy. So I don't know where she was or what she was doing during that time. We finished our meal and without asking if we wanted anything else -- like, oh, another beer, maybe -- she brought the bill. Normally we would suggest that instead of the bill, we get another beer, but we realized the futility of that action. So we provided the credit card. The waitress returned after scanning the card, only without the card. Yes, without our credit card. She misplaced the credit card between taking it to the cash register, scanning it, and returning to our table. After searching around, she came back to the table with the card only to say that she had left it on the front counter by the cash register. Needless to say, her tip was not great.

Of course, our experience could be an anomoly. Hopefully it is, because for the location it is a great beer bar. I'll give it another shot, but if something similar happens, that's it.

great pub fare... I just hate the smell of the interior of the place; so sit outside; even if you have to sit next to the smokers. Beer is always good; they turn it over quickly.
