I had read the reviews saying this was great food. No it wasn't. The fish was mostly deep fried crust. The potatoes were typical frozen. Tasteless. The deep fried onions were all batter with a tiny sliver of onion. More like a peel of onion. And that was $11.
Don't waste your time and money going here.
The pub itself is not very attractive. Not a place to sit back and enjoy a pint.

This is a small pub in San Jose, which has a short menu of British classics like fish and chips, bangers and mash, chicken pie. I went twice and had the fish one evening and the chicken pie the other. Both were very good with none of the mass produced flavour the food in some places has. The bar is always full of regular customers and you can eat there or at the tables in the back.They have one dessert, a mud pie. Don't miss it. There is a good variety of beer available, lest you think it is all about the food. Service is very friendly and the atmosphere is really nice. Definitely a good spot in downtown San Jose.

I stopped here for a bit to eat with some family here from Scottland and it was amazing. The curry is very traditional to that in Scottland and the beer on tap is quite nice. The place feels like a real pub in Europe.
