If I could give this place a minus 5 stars I would. I visited this place with someone who lives in the area. The bartender who served us is an African American in his late 30's. All I know is that I was there for no more than an hour, and blacked out after 2.5 drinks. I was later sexually... More

Authentic British Pub, in the heart of downtown Monterey. Lots of good British beers (along with the American selections) and good pub grub. Our bartender was a friendly, helpful British expat. Fun place!

We popped in for a pint and found the beers and prices average to good. I found the place a bit noiser for my liking but there is a deflate local vibe and the staff are extremely boisterous and friendly so it had a pleasant feeling overall. Amazingly we screwed up the bill and needed up paying on the card... More

Popped in her whilst waiting for a table at Hulu's which is nearby. Describes itself as a British Pub. However there may be pubs like this but they are not plentiful. it all felt a little dark and in need of sprucing up.

The Bulldog Pub has really good food and great service! It's a great place to hang out with friends for Lunch or Dinner, or just to socialize. There are a couple of Dart Boards and a Music box to select tunes anyone would like to hear. There are also many TV's with sport events or shows you may want to... More

More like a sports bar, but it would be a fun place to go watch a game. We went to watch the ACC basketball championship game. The food was OK, about what you expect from a sports bar style spot. We got fish and chips and cottage pie (Shepard's pie with ground beef).

Ran in for a quick Guinness on "everybody is Irish day". Pleasant and very friendly. We didn't have anything to eat, just drinks.
