Very good selection of British beers at reasonable prices. The Porter is particularly good. The food is good is very wholesome and tasty and good value . Fish & Chips and Steak & Mushroom Pie very good. If staying in Monterey a good place to go for good British pub food and ales.

We had the Bite sized Cod while sitting at the bar. Chose the location because it was right across the street from our Inn where we were staying. Service was kind of lame. No smile, just straight up acted like they didn't want to be there. I would have given it a 3 1/2 because I liked the cod. The... More

The four of us went in thinking we'd get a decent dinner at a reasonable price. Our experience was forgettable in every way. I was not happy with my dish (I can't even recall which one I got). I remember getting a taste of my wife's pasta and being dissatisfied. The other couple we were with were not happy campers.... More

Stopped by for an early dinner after spotting a varied menu of pub food & ales on tap at reasonable prices for Monterey. Ales arrived quick & cold followed shortly by a tasty cottage pie for him served with perfectly cooked fresh veg and fish n chips for me. Both meals were tasty & satisfying coupled with friendly service.

Stumbled on this place on our first night in Monterey and needed some comfortable food! Not very busy when we sat down but filled up a bit as time passed. Our server (sorry no name) was superb answering my wife's questions about food and drink with humour. It has the look and feel of an English Pub in a foreign... More

Lovely outside garden and great place for lunch. Good beer, wine and food. James was excellent and we only wish we had gone back here rather than going to Sly McFlys :-(

We were seated for lunch and 10 minutes later a waiter arrived to take our drink orders. After 15 minutes we left after never seeing our waiter again. What was weird is that the bar and drink machine for the servers station were about three feet away from our table. Do not recommend.

Comparing prices on the outside menus took us inside to a representation of an English pub. Not bad, and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff are very friendly, the food was basic, we had the Cooper burger which was very tasty. I had the porter ale - I'd had had more if I wasn't driving! Very nice. Hic!

We stopped here while walking around Cannery Row and I am so happy we did. The food was amazing. They have a large selection of ciders and beer. Try the pear cider.
