Locals place with British food and lots of liquor. Friendly and uncomfortable (yes, uncomfortable) but a good place to meet a friend for an hour.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat on our way back from the wharf. It's always fun to check out Brit pubs in the states. Lovely food and service plus the football was on! Would stop in again if we had more time in the area.

Good place to gather with friends during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Lots of volunteers come in and toast to surviving a long day! Typical pub food, but hit the spot when needed.

Food was up to standard,in ralation with other restaurants claiming British Fish & Chips, Cod was perfectly cooked with crispy batter. Chips were did the justification. Boddington draft beer was up to the taste and the cream on top. Lovely, wanted another pint but " I Love my Driving Licence more than my Wife" hence stick to one pint. I... More

Don't let the outside appearance put you off, we walked past this place the first time as there were smokers outside the entrance, this always puts me off. We then went back as there wasn't anywhere else that caught our eye. The food was so fresh and amazing, it was well worth the visit. Nachos were probably one of the... More

We came upon this pub on the way back to our hotel from the harbour. We decided to pop in for a couple of drinks as the night was young and found it to be very pleasant. My dad was thrilled they had cider on tap and prices much more reasonable than on the harbour front. We didn't order food... More

They advertise $4 for draft beers during happy hour. Turns out not all drafts are $4. They need to advertise "select" draft beers for $4. Also, don't try and break a $100 bill even if you are buying a round for four people.
