What a wonderful nigth in this place. Highly recommended. Music was absolutely fantastic and live band played marvelous.

If you come to Bogota and loves rock plus a good place, don't hesitate to get into.

This is better than the nearby Red Lion, although that is hardly strong competition. The wait staff are efficient and the fish and chips that I ordered reasonable. There were some foreign beers as well, not too badly priced, and that was good.
It's never been that busy when I've been there, just a couple of courting couples, but it has a reasonable atmosphere.
The menu - beyond the fish and chips is a little odd. Dishes with rather grand english sounding names, but in truth it's pretty common fare. Personally I'd recommend sticking with the Fish & Chips.
This is a good area, and there are much better places to eat, but if you're looking for a pub evening it's a reasonable choice.

As a group of predominantly English expats we are very aware of what a pub is and how it should be run and they have some way to go before they can lay claim to that style.
The decor is authentic and indeed cosy with a gas fire a long bar, an outside area for smokers and a patio style area at the rear.
The waiting staff were actually very good and as attentive as they are in any of the competitor bars in Usaquen and there are several within a couple of blocks.
What really grated was that we arrived at about 6pm when the bar was empty and sat by the fire as colleagues and friends arrived we added the smaller tables to accommodate us better. We were told that this was not acceptable as the other tables were reserved although there was nothing to suggest that they were. We decided that we would not move and threatened to leave, we were now a group of about 10 drinking steadily. Later the bar manager was sent over to ask us to move again to the patio area as he had "reservations" again we refused drank up and left. The man who I believe to be the owner or at least the senior manager declined to get involved and sent his clearly embarrassed deputy over to sort this out.
We left at about 1130 having spent over 500,000 between us and we felt constantly harassed about the moving table business. This was despite the bar being about 65% full and the much vaunted reservations never turned up and I believe they never existed.
This bar chain have the same attitude in Parque 93 where they do not like you sitting at the high tables if there are two of you despite the bar being empty also when we were a group of 9 they refused to serve us at the rear of the pub on a Friday night as that area was shut. Too lazy to walk the extra 5 meters more like.
At least in Usaquen they don't ask to see your receipt before you leave as they have done in Parque 93, talk about how to treat your customers like thieves.
I have had the misfortune to visit this chain several times when the choice was not mine on where we should meet as a group an I now avoid the places if at all possible.
I suggest the owners go to London and visit a real English pub and learn what hospitality is because that is the business that they are in and they have a lot to learn.
