“Atmosphere, service and great food”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

One almost hesitates to write a review of this place because you don't want the secret out and keep it to yourself! The stars frequent Pikeys as well which is like jetful for popularity. It's pub style with a nice kitschy twist. The server was nice and efficient too. The food hot and the liquor decent microbrews and quality scotch, always a plus in my books.

“Vinegar Chicken, who knew?”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

My friend chose the restaurant as part of the UK in LA plan for our visit. I was expecting a pub, and the decor is high class pub, but the food is not your usual pub grub. First of all the ingredients are organic, locally sourced farm raised produce and free range cruelty free poultry and meat. And it's all well prepared with fun variations on classic dishes. There's a good beer selection, interesting cocktails and an excellent standard gin martini upon request. The staff were engaged and informative, ready to answer questions about the menu and help with choices. Mary's vinegar chicken with Thrice Cooked Chips was seasoned perfectly with some tang and kick, but nothing over the top. The chips were baked and fried briefly ending up crisp and not greasy. My friend had the fish and chips which were also very pleasing. Certainly worth a visit.

“Easy to Love”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I had the vinegar chicken and it lived up to all the hype. It's tender and not dry. They do chips justice and the mister loved his with fish. We loved the drinks we had though our memory blurred as to what those drinks were. It was Cinco de Mayo, after all. I don't think that anyone would be disappointed eating here.

“An odd name but great food”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Pikey seems a somewhat odd name to us English as one usually associates it with travelers living in less than ideal conditions but I loved this place. I had the Full English breakfast which was fabulous washed down with a pint of Pils, a great start to my Saturday. Will definitely return for an evening meal when next in the area.

“Great Brunch!”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Spent Mother's Day in LA with my sons. The Pikey is a favorite of the oldest who live in LA. We had a great brunch, the burger and fries are some of the best I have had. The decor was old European, comfortable and clean. Staff was attentive. Overall excellent. Four meals, 3 drinks, 2 desserts - about $120 with 20% tip - cant beat it.
