“Service? What service?”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I was enticed inside late one lunchtime, and got a cold beer while studying the menu. Things went downhill immediately after that when I was unable to find or get the attention of the serving staff who were scarce and busy with private conversations on their phones.

So I paid for my beer and went next door to "Coyote" where I enjoyed items from their extensive lunch menu. Delicious!

“this is a [great] pub, full english breakfast obligatory”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

great for people watching, captures the essence of Hong Kong nightlife as do the toilets at the rear. Food not to be taken lightly....the full english breakfast will make further eating in the same day challenging.

“Nice place to have a drink in busy lockhart Road”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Nice place to have a drink... all along the day especially during week end as it is open almost 24 hours a day.
They have tv on walls so that you can enjoy your favorite english soccer game as it his not crowded like some others bars with very loud music.
The staff is very friendly and very fast
For the food , dont expect to have great food, its only pub food.

“Disgusting!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

During a heavy rain downpour, we took a break from the rain and had a beer. Honestly, this must be the nastiest bar in Hong Kong.

Dirty, leaking roof and just unpleasant! So bad I'm compelled to warn other travellers!

If you want a nice spot to go out and drink, try Wyndham Street and D'Aguilar Street on Hong Kong Island near Central Station or Knutsford Terrace.
