We've been going to this place for about seven years now, and we've never had a bad experience. Rarely crowded in the evenings -- they must make their money on those morning soccer game crowds. Friendly staff, plenty of seats, great English beers and sometimes Scottish, Irish, French or Belgian beers. And the traditional pub food is crazy cheap -- one of the best values in Santa Monica. If you're tired of squeezing yourself into one of the crowded, loud British bars near the Third Street Promenade, definitely give this a try.
Pros: Good beer, Easy parking, Relaxing atmosphere
Cons: Still cash only
