This is a quirky, authentic British-owned and themed bar-restaurant. Several craft beers can be found on tap, both domestic and British, while the two cask handpumps dispense beers imported from the UK whenever these are available (domestic beers when not). The food menu offers a wide selection of good quality British comfort food, from the flagship fish and chips down to the more obscure stuff such as Welsh Rarebit, fried mac and cheese balls (yummy!), and even various fried confectionery. If you’re lucky with timing, the bar’s iconic Reliant Robin three-wheeled classic 850cc English car may be seen parked outside – thought to be the only example in NYC. Interior décor is a serious collection of British street signs, rock and punk gig posters, and anything which promotes traditional upfront British culture. Look closely behind the spirit bottles behind the bar close to the entrance, and you may find copies of Viz magazine – an irreverent, deliberately uncouth and non-PC, but extremely funny and cheeky adults’ comic that has a cult following in the UK. This place is totally ‘real’! (3/2015)
