Had a great time visiting recently with a friend for a Patriots fan event. It's a fun atmosphere with some cool staff members and some reasonable drink prices. The food at the event was pretty good as well. Parking could be tricky during peak times so public transportation or an Uber/Lyft would do the trick!

The staff was great good drinks, great food and thoroughly seemed to enjoy partying with all of the fans. I took... More

Stayed at the Hotel D'Anza and found this eatery by accident. Had the shepherds Pie and crab cakes. Excellent food.

This is your typical British pub with the regular British comfort foods. Pretty wide selection of food choices.

Great beer selection and I love the back patio at the DT location. Food is always serviceable - it won't blow you away, but it's good pub food. I work across the street and find myself here at least once a month for lunch and a beer on a Friday afternoon.

I have gone here many times, and have enjoyed going into this place. I went three days ago, no change to my liking the place. I love it! I like going into this place when I want excellent fish and chips and a brew to go with it. I have NEVER been to Britain, but would love to 'cross the... More

Good old fashioned British style bar with fish and chips and sausage beans and chips as well as lots of other good stuff! They even serve a good Pimms although some of the servers are not too sure what it is! The English manager/owner put the right in no time. Beer selection is good with a good mixture of British...
