Good food - salad, rolls, pasta, pizza, braised chicken and vegetables. Limited imported beers, but the local beer is good too. Attentive service. Fox Sports on the big TV.

More like an average English pub than an Irish one. Several advertised beers weren’t available which was disappointing. They do serve nice fish and chips though. Menu was very limited though. It offers a reasonable respite if your getting a bit tired of Japanese cuisine....More

It is nice pub with tasty European food. Excellent Japanese beer. The staff knows English very well and the service is on very high level. It’s no smoking pub.

Lots of locals using this place. Has some craft local beers and serves either snack food or full plates. Spent a few hours here and had a good meal and tried some of their beers.

This is a very warm and cozy place to have a few drinks and pub food. Beers include foreign brews (e.g. Hoegaarden) as well as a number of interesting Japanese beers -- not only the big names. One word of warning: Tripadvisor uses Google's map...More

Beautiful decor that replicates a British pub so well that you forget you are in Japan! We decided to order the classic fish and chips as a break from Japanese food at every meal. Delicious food and wait staff doesn't pester the clientele to keep...More
