“If you want a taste of the British Isles, this is the place to go. Having lived in the UK for 13 years, I am a bit of an expert on what is British and what is not. This is an authentic British pub, with typical British Pub food. It is quite good, really. If it happens to be cold and rainy when you visit, ask the barkeep for a hot buttered rum. Wow! Fantastic!”
