The more refined side of British booze culture is reflected at this UES gastropub, helmed by veterans of Orsay and Raines Law Room. English brews like Fuller's London Pride share tap space with Belgium suds (Duvel Green) and a proprietary lager made by Red Hook's Sixpoint Craft Ales. Wine drinkers can explore a number of vino-based cocktails from Raines Law Room mixologist Meaghan Dorman, including the First Bloom (sauvignon blanc, elderflower cordial, lemon, club soda) and the La Vie En Rose (dry vermouth, grenadine, lime, club soda). Retire to the main dining room—featuring a wraparound button-tufted banquette, caged Edison lightbulbs and dozens of volumes of Shakespeare—for a full menu of soups, savory pies (steak and kidney, rosemary lamb) and mains, including Lancashire hot pot and bangers and mash. Come spring, the dressed-up tavern will offer afternoon tea service—complete with scones, seasonal jam and clotted cream—in the building's garden atrium.

Jones Wood Foundry is tiny, even by New York standards, but that's part of the charm. Most of the bartenders sport the accents you look for at a British pub, and the extensive selection of beers and ciders definitely pays homage to pubs across the pond. I love cider, and you don't often find pear cider, rose cider, or alcoholic ginger beer stateside—other than at Jones Wood Foundry. In the winter, they have hot mulled wine, too!
I love this place -- kind of a hidden gem. They have a pretty good wine list. It's a pretty decent date spot. There's actually some pretty decent food here as well. I'd say go for the eggs & soldiers and shepherd's pie..
