Went there for drinks and appetizers. Since my lady friend never had sardines before (what right) we ordered them. She was very pleased that she ordered her own. Drinks were good and the service was excellent. The view was great. Romantic place if you get the tables by the Windows. Or what you make of it. Lol.

We didn't know where to go to avoid the "tourist meals", so we ended up here having a delicious fish & chips. Friendly service, nice cosy atmosphere, good beer and lovely desserts Would really recommend

We dined here as a family for lunch. It was right after Christmas, and Monterey was packed even on a Wednesday afternoon. Our service was excellent overall. I enjoyed a seafood salad sandwich that was full of seafood (shrimp and crab)and not all mayo and celery. The cheese bread, however, was skimpy, and only 3 of the small 4 pieces... More

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
