  • order the lamb burger
  • With a proper rugby and football scene in place, if you're visiting SF during the 6 Nations Rugby Championship, this pub will show the early morning matches. The kitchen opens at halftime.
  • mmmm fish and chips!
  • Quesadillas, nachos and the lamb burger are great. Crowds up on game nights.
  • I know they are in the kid's menu, but I just can't stay away from the chicken strips!!!
  • The fish n' chips are some of the best in the city.
  • Good place for a beer. Music might get loud.
  • Lunch specials are 5star great!
  • Great small FRIENDLY pub. The owner is very nice and food is on point.
  • A good fish-n-chip is hard to find. Batter is light and tasty, slightly on the soggy side and the cod broke apart into pieces. I will continue my mission to find the greatest fish n chips in SF.
  • Very convenient to Moscone West. Nice people, intimate space (low capacity). Good selection of soccer matches on several TVs. Fish and chips was awesome (ask for curry on the side for with the fries).
  • Shepard's pie and a couple of Murphy's. Great!
  • Best Guinness outside of Ireland.
  • Excellent whisky selection -- Irish and Scottish especially.
  • Super friendly staff, great energy and great food!
  • Straightforward cozy pub perfect for pints and conversation with friends.
  • Great selection of draft beer and whiskey. Potato soup and brown bread hit the spot.
