When I lived in Santa Monica, the daily pint was pretty much a straight british pub with lots of British beers and a few micros. It was a dingy place and not among my favorites.

5 years can change a lot.

Still kind of a grubby bar but the taps, man, the taps have come so far. Met some friends for the "Life And Limb" release (that tells you a little about the quality of the taps.)

Quality takes a hit though. My first beer was a cask IPA. It was so past fresh that I sent it back. (And got charged for it.) It was sour and heavily oxidized aka spoiled. My other beers were fine.

No food is made on premises but you can bring in.

I definitley like the place but the spoiled beer and the $1 extra on pints on weekends left kind of a negative impression. But it's still a great bar.

Been many times. Can get very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. Mostly a "dive" bar. Nothing fancy, just lots of Whiskey/Scotch and beer on tap with 3 or 4 cask offerings. Fairly dark interior, long bar, chalkboard lists the beers and specials. Two pool tables, a shuffleboard game, juke box, and foosball game to play. Lots of TV screens, plus a large projector on the wall. Bathrooms are dingy and small. Service can be variable, but normally O.K. Thirty-three taps with about a quarter rotating regularly. Lines not always cleaned between kegs. Cooler with nearly 100 different bottles to purchase. No food, but you can bring your own or order and have it delivered. Sometimes a food truck shows up for a special event. Most beers are $8/pint which is too expensive for me. No happy hour prices. During NFL season on Sundays most beers are a dollar off. Worth a stop if you are in the area. Would be great if they expanded and cleaned the place up a bit.

I've been here a few times but I'll never go back. They have a great selection of Scotch whiskeys and a better than average beer menu, but that's not enough to overcome how ordinary and drab the place is, and how awful and rude the service is. Maybe I'm overreacting to the one truly terrible bartender I encountered there who tried, three times, to take away my drinks while I was still drinking them. When I asked to be left alone to finish my drink she called me "weird." Okay, did you just call me weird? "You're getting all territorial!" My mistake: I'm not weird, I'm weird and territorial. I had a beer, a Scotch, and a glass of water, and she tried lifting each of them before I was done, and I told her, politely, that I was still drinking them. She fled the scary scene and refused to acknowledge me in my attempt to get another glass of water before leaving forever. Yes, they have good whiskey, but most of the bar staff doesn't know a thing about the 250 Scotches they have, and ultimately it's just another dive with crappy service. They don't train the servers to know that the customer is always right; instead, they allow them to insult the customer by calling them names without any provocation. Pass.

Decent bar with a very good selection of beer and single malt Scotch. Hopefully you won't have the displeasure of meeting the owner. He really is a horrible person...not at all suited to a career in the hospitality industry... Otherwise the place gets a good mix of people and is really the only thing in that neighborhood...
