The British Ale is worth a stop. The food on the other hand is average at best. I had the fish and chips. The fish was good, batter was greasy as were the fries. My husband had the burger and Poutine fries. Cheese curds were...More

I am so excited that my husband and I decided to try this place out. The pub has the coolest vibe. The food was VERY good! We didn't try the brews, but plan to return in the future!

Cozy, rustic atmosphere that has a good lunch menu selection of sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups and more. The sweet potato fries were soft in the middle and crispy on the outside. Reuben sandwich was packed with meat. Very good choice for lunch.

I love chicken Parmesan so was looking forward to having it. The noodles were good, the chicken ok but far too little sauce and cheese. So dry. All it would've taken was a more sauce and cheese to make this passable. Disappointing.

What a great little English style pub. A bit of character, some good nooks and pool tables. They brew beer which is hand pumped and the kitchen turns out some quality food.

This is a great Public House! The atmosphere is so relaxed and unpretentious, I felt like I was walking into the living room of an old friend's house. Comfy sofas in one room, pool tables in two others, bar and board games in the fourth....More

We met our friends from Oakridge at this pub. Very friendly bar tender. Good was fine, but nothing memorable.

Friendly relaxed brew pub with true English style beers (pulled from the cask at room temperature) along with some guest taps. Decent burger, good fries. Great place to stop after hiking or biking. Live music some nights.

We were on the right side of the tracks. Great find, great service(remember to order at the bar), great food and brews. We tried the flatbread pizza and shared the fries that came with mushroom gravy and cheese curds. Yum! Clean atmosphere and friendly service.

No, but it's a fun, open atmosphere where people chat even if they don't know each other. You can play board games, other games, or read...very laid-back place.

The Brewers Union Local 180, Oregon's only Real Ale Pub and Brewery, is a blend of the best of the British Public House, the American spirit of adventure, and the natural scenic beauty of Oregon's Cascade Mountains. Situated in the center of Oakridge, which along with it's neighboring city of Westfir are the only cities in Oregon completely surrounded by National Forest, you will find a throwback to when the community gathered regularly to share news, when beer was brewed in the back of the pub and pulled from the cellar out of a cask, and when the weary traveler found a cozy nook and a good meal.

The Local 180 aspires to be neither a restaurant nor a bar, neither a coffeeshop nor a pool hall. You won't find any gambling machines, overbearing television sets, or blaring piped-in music. Better yet, expect to find yourself a comfortable spot in the quiet front parlor, enjoy a cup or two of good coffee and a good book, or show off battle-scars from that last downhill ride in the public bar over a pint of cask conditioned ale. You will not be processed through the typical restaurant theater, but instead you can stay as long as you wish, right up to the last orders bell.
