All too often, English pubs outside the motherland entail tacky wall-mounted pictures of London buses and cocktails named around cricket-based puns. Beirut has one bona fide English themed pub, and by luck it is an exception to the rule. It helps that The Greedy Goose is run by a Englishman: there's no jarring Beatles decor or ineptly realised cockney theme, and the references to English heritage are mostly limited to some Chelsea memorabilia. The beer on tap is mercifully served in full pints, though for the most part it's locally sourced. And as you'd expect from somewhere that markets itself as a gastro pub, the food ain't half bad: the fish & chips is among the best in the city. With a long bar, a variety of comfy sofas and a capacious dining area, you’re never short on somewhere to sit – unless the game is on.
