Maclaren's is just perfect if you are gagging for some British comfort food. It is just like being in a pub in England and even serves pints, very welcome. As others say, Rik the owner is a great host and makes you feel very welcome. More expensive than the local fare but worth it if you have a craving!

We had a couple of beers here with some friends, the pub itself is nothing outstanding but the beer is good, the staff are friendly and efficient and the host, Ric, very welcoming. Apart from the decor it was like walking into your local pub in the UK! I would have liked to have gone back to try the food, which looked really good, but we were short on time in KL. Will try it next time we're in the area.
Thanks Ric!

There's no doubt that Ric Bische (the owner) is a natural at making you feel welcome in his bar/restaurant. He's one of those landlords who has a knack of making you feel welcome the moment you walk through the door. As for the food well it's traditional English pub grub but in American size portions (the burgers are mountainous). It's good quality food and service with a smile. Great if your a group of friends looking for a place to indulge in some grub and a few beers in a friendly atmosphere but be warned - if you're going to eat there, go on an empty stomach!

Stumbled upon this gem of a place with my girlfriend while waiting for my hair cut appointment and since then this has been my place of choice tohang out and enjoy great pub food and awesome value.

Even though it might be your first time, the owner Rick immediately makes you feel at home. You leave the place gaining a friend. And guys, Rick makes an excellent wing man as well so this place is highly recommended if you want to bring a special someone for a nice meal and the environment really makes it condusive to have a nice chat.

Very highly recommended.
