“Terricfic English Tavern with Dart Room!”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Housed in the old original Punta Gorda Ice House, (behind Manatee's Pizza), this is a wonderful old style English Pub. Typical pub food, fish & chips are a specialty, as are the authentic beef cottage pie, and it's sister chicken version, which I prefer. Have HUGE selection of beers from all over the world, so many they have a multi-page menu just for beer, which actually gives the alcoholic content of each! Don't forget to bring your darts (they have "loaners"), & try your luck in the large dart room in the back. Very large wall TV great for watching sports. High tables & lots of ambiance. Try out Manatee's Pizza next door for good Italian food and Pizza.

“A pretty good time”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

The drinks are a little expensive. This bar has a really fun game involving a washer on a string and a hook on the wall. great place for darts. The music isnt very loud, which is probebly good for the median age of this city. One thing is for sure, this is a really authentic building and a cool place to visit.

“Very nice pub atmosphere”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Huge selection of imported and micro brew beer. Food is very good but pricey as are the drink prices. Recent food price hikes had put me off for awhile. Busy in the season and more friendly off season.

“the cold Ice house”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

The atmosphere in the Ice house is like a Ice house. Take your Sweater You have to go there and check it out. It is different.
Fish and chips. Different kind of beers. People who like that - are in the right spot.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Loved the ice house pub. Very good fish sandwich and a hugh selection of great beers. Decor is amazing. If you want a good pub to go to in punta gorda, this is it. Keep clear of the the celtic ray down the road..this is better and cleaner.
