Came in for dinner after steering clear of cannery row. Friendly service. Food was good, not great, but definitely hit the spot. Decor feels truly authentic and had it not been a family dinner I could have hung out at the bar for a pint...More

We lucked on to this pub. Its so quaint and the bartender, Penelope, was wonderful and very friendly. Its a fun place, with good ambience, good drinks choices and great food menu, even though we didn't eat here.

We've been a couple of times to this British Bar. The food is pretty good and they have a good selection of beers. If you seat in the patio area, it gets pretty loud and people smoke in close proximity (sometimes). It is located next...More

We went here because we were looking for a pub atmosphere and maybe some music. Our food took under 3 minutes to come out, which automatically makes me nervous. The waiter brought us our beer then we never heard from him again until he brought...More

So sorry I am just now seeing this. I cannot imagine why they wouldn't take it. It was quite a while ago so I don't recall. I know some places refuse that card b/c of the fees but lately I've noticed more and more places ARE... More
