Upton entry, you instantly get a feel of a British Pub. Albeit, kinda Homespun 'Build to look' like a British Pub feel. It doesn't have the age or craftmanship of British Pub, but it's not England. So, the modern looking bar with home depot spindles and glued on molding may not resemble the British wood crafters of the days of... More

Had dinner with coworker and retired coworker as he lives close by. Nice quiet interior BUT not well lit from the outside as we drove by 3 times before we saw the pub. Two of us had the steak and mushroom pie which had lite flaky top and pretty darn good insides! Fish and chips looked authentic as the chips... More

Visited here Saturday, September 24, 2016 around 5 p.m. Somewhat akin to a British Pub with some standard British Pub food, meat pies, fish and chips etc. Fish portions huge and fish and chips entree quite good. Prices reasonable. Staff brings ketchup, malt and vinegar and tartar sauce to table for you to pick and choose at your leisure. Good... More

I've been dining here for over 17 years. The food is great, friendly service, and on occasion they have live music on the weekends. (That may have been a few years back now) When you open the menu you'll find one page of food and several pages of adult beverages. It's a well-rounded selection, check it out. Cheers!

We went here twice during our stay in Portland. The first time we went we had some simple and inexpensive pub grub that was super tasty and filling. The next time we went during live music that was on during the week. There was a great, lively and laid back atmosphere there that we found in no other bar in... More

I must admit, I always get the Fish and Chips here. I don't know how their other food is, but the fish and chips rock. Usually a half-order (two pieces) is enough for me, thanks to the pile of delicious french fries used as a foundation. I used to be a fry cook, so I can tell they go to... More

Absolutely top-notch service and very very reasonable prices. Fun, eclectic atmosphere that kept us far longer than planned. Sit at bar and if you have the good fortune of having Katie serve you settle in

very typical local pub. Lots of locals. They had no local brews... kind of odd. Food was good - typical pub fare. Very good service

The night I visited this place it was surprisingly busy, especially for a weeknight, but the food and service were outstanding. My table of 3.5 (one person arrived late) ordered a ton of food, including bangers and mash, and it was all super tasty and relatively quick, even for being busy. The server was more than accommodating, especially considering we... More

Very nice neighborhood British style Pub. Reminds me of many Pubs I have been to in England overs the years. They have quite a few beers on tap and many more in bottles/cans. I tried one of the specials, a Boneyard, and it was very good. While they don't advertise as a family friendly place, young kids are welcome. The... More
