I actually ate here twice while staying nearby. Once was alone and once was with a fairly large group. On both occasions the service was friendly and attentive. The UK-centric menu (It's called a pub, you know.) isn't huge but there is variety and the quality was very good. That and the large beer selection should explain why I was... More

This is a nice bar with a large selection of international and domestic beers , I ordered and really enjoyed the steak pie , other items on the menu looked good too ie. the fish and chips and the burgers. Probably would not travel to far to come here but if in the area I would be dining here again.

This pub was close to my hotel (Saga Motor Hotel) and the Dodgers were in the playoffs, so I went. The place was packed and the only table available was far away from the tvs, so the waiter moved me to a better location. He got my wine order wrong - it is a beer place - but he was... More

We're thrilled we got a chance to welcome you while you were in town, Carlye, and happier still that you had such a great time. Apologies for the mistake with your wine order, once again! Glad we made things right though. Anytime you're in the area we'd love to see you again! Cheers, Peggy, Owner More

Lucky Baldwins is a small chain of bar/restaurants in the Pasadena area with a distinctly British accent. The East Colorado Boulevard outlet also carries the Trappiste tag in recognition of its wide selection of European craft beers. But not only does it offer an exceptional range of draft and bottled craft beers from the US and abroad, it also serves... More

Wanted to have a satisfying dinner while in Pasadena for a night. Lots of pubs serve fish and chips so I couldn't give lots of points for the food. What distinguishes this place is the positive Attitude of the wait staff. There is an extensive variety of beers and the waiters are willing to work with your tastes and their... More

We ate here last Saturday night while in Pasadena. It's a pretty nice place. Decent beer and decent wine. Funky atmosphere. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the curry. The food is ok, nothing to rave about, at least with what we ate. The fish was mostly batter, not much fish inside. The curry was ok.... More

Sounds like you had a great time with us, Algene! Thanks for visiting last weekend during your stay in Pasadena and for sharing your thoughts on TripAdvisor too. Typically our fish is a little meatier than what you described; sorry if it was a let down. But definitely give our meat pies a try anytime you're here -- I know... More

I ordered an omelet with onions, bacon and avocado. There was way more of the filling than I expected. Plus the omelet wasn't greasy from the bacon. And tons of crispy home fries with green and red peppers.

Came in and watched a game of football on the tele. Ordered a few pints and had a decent order of fish and chips. Comes with mushy peas. I believe their tartar sauce is made in house with dill. Nice accompaniment to the fish. The dill added a lovely flavor to the tartar sauce.

Thank Krissy L

You came to the right place to watch a football match and enjoy a pint or two, Krissy! Thanks for joining us and for the kind words about the dishes you tried too. You know where to find us again anytime you're in the mood for more of the same! Cheers, Peggy, Owner More

Fish and Chips good beside several other British favorites. Typical English Football type Pub with many TVs handling all sports likes; mine being soccer.

I was in the mood for a cold beer. Came here with my sister and we ordered a beer on tap. It wasn't the coldest, but it was good. Not the cleanest place. Seemed like a local hangout. Was interesting to try a new place. I may go back, who knows?

Peggy S, Owner at Lucky Baldwin's Trappiste, responded to this review

Thanks for giving us a shot, tomjonesCalifornia, but I'm a little surprised and disappointed to hear we didn't quite hit the mark. Certainly you should expect a cold beer when you come to our pubs, and the same is true about our cleanliness. I'll be looking into both of those comments, making sure we're on target going forward. Those aren't... More
