Great location right in the middle of Haight area. Busy pub with dark wood cosy vibe. Beers selection is heavy on the English side and doesn't suffer for it. Had 5 casks on when I was there and about 15 others on draft. Staff friendly and food great, especially the cheeses.

Very cool place right on haight street where it all went down. English style beers for the most part, some strong ales and plenty of real low session beers. Dead music playing loud, beers named for dead tunes, and a real friendly guy behind the bar sampling me generously and filling me in with info. All the beers were solid, the cask IPA was exceptional, and it was a downright awesome place to spend the afternoon. Brew house is downstairs and out of sight, but the place is full of that mashing grain rich aroma. I was stoked on this place, and the food looked good too but I didn't eat. I will assuredly be back.
