Located in a quiet part of downtown San Jose, this place is all British style. There are British Isles flags all around, high ceiling with fans, long L - shaped bar, some dining in the front and in the back, and seating outside in front of the establishment.

Appeared to have mostly stainless steel tap nozzles unless some were stained. Could not see the kitchen and the restroom was clean. Wood tables, chairs, and bar, part of which was in a narrow walkway, gives this place some British Pub character.

Service was prompt, knowledgable, and informative.

Mostly UK brews on tap and the three cask beers were English Ales from Marina, CA. Fat Lip, Prince Porter, and Monks Brown were the some what tasty cask beers.

The food is good and made from scratch here.

I stopped in at Trials back in February. I only tried their handpulled offerings, and all of them were very good. They had a beer that was not pouring correctly from the handpull and of course gave it to us for free. I did not try the food, but it looked good. All of the handpull beers I tried at Trials were from English Ales Brewery.
