Even at odd hours this place is popular. Great beer menu. Food menu is limited but quite good. I'm told the grilled cheese sandwich is a local favorite. I had the fish 'n chips and it did not disappoint. Someone in our group enjoyed the...More

Authentic English pub serving up excellent versions of the classic fish and chips to curry just like you'd find in London (except for three shoestring fries, which were very good anyway) The inside reminded me of a more well lit version of a pub I've...More

We actually travelled 2 hrs to try this Pub on a recommendation. Glad we took the ride. It is located in a quaint section of Athens. It's small and fills up fast. The fish and chips was wonderful even if the chips were American fries....More

Ivan, Mike, Shannon. and Jess treat you the right way. Meghan, Britney, Augusta are great staff. Marla, Bales, Alejandro, and the rest of the chefs make fantastic food. If you don't like this place, you won't like it anywhere.

Our entrees were all just under $10. There were, as I recall, some over, but we were there for lunch.
