A journalists and football fan favorite, this place’s music, menu and decor replicate a traditional English pub, without going overboard on the posters and Union Jack paraphernalia. Good taste is the norm here. The DJ usually spins a great selection of Britpop, soul and English postpunk and you will often get that nostalgic bug with tunes from the Mystery Jets, Dizzee Rascal, MIA and the likes. Their tap beer is great but they also carry imported labels like Duvel, London Porter, Samuel Adams, Carolus and other treats to ease your mind.
They hold events and feature promos throughout the week. Tuesday nights are Jazz Nights, with 50% off on many of their drinks. On Wednesdays, Ladies Night feature a DJ and drinks are 15 pesos for the girls all night. Thursdays they have Funk Nights, with 30% off until midnight. On Fridays, whiskey is 2x1 until midnight and Saturdays they will have a live rock band.
If you’re in the mood for a snack, their Minipapas—baked potatoes drenched in mustard and cream sauce—, the traditional fish and chips and the bangers and mash are a hit. But if you feel like eating properly, the Black Horse Tuna Steak is the star among its specials.
The crowd here is relaxed and friendly. You will not find overly attired people with fancy watches and gelled hair: it’s clear they just care for good drinks and good music.
