Just a need to do something fun we met the whole family at the OEPP for brunch. The place was hopping! Staff was all buzzing about. We all sat at the bar (6) and it was cozy and fun. Bloody Mary's were a knockout! Love that horseradish. I had the full English breakfast, others had the BLT (it's something special,... More

On a whim we stopped by the Olde English Pub and being a Thursday evening we were surprised to see how busy the bar and restaurant was. We quickly discovered that it was the second night the new chef was offering a Farm to Table menu. The full menu was also available to order from but we chose to go... More

You feel like you are in an old English Pub. They have lots of different beer on tap. Pub style food.

If you are just looking for a cozy place to hang out and have drinks, I would up the rating to a 4-star. But I would not recommend it as a place to eat. I'm not saying that the food was bad, and if you are drinking and just need something to munch on, well probably you aren't looking for... More

I'm actually English, born and raised, and I can tell you that this place is about as authentic as it gets this since of the pond! The food is standard British pub fare, I'll leave it at that. I'm British, and I'm not a fan of British pub food. The pub, and beer, and ambience are spot on. A great... More

So many times in the US you'll walk into a "British pub" to be greeted with burgers, wings, and Budweiser, but here that's not the case. We happened to be walking past here on a cold night and couldn't pass up the opportunity to check it out. Even from the outside, this looks like a proper British pub. We came... More

We had our wedding reception here last October on the second floor and it was really nice. The interior is beautiful and the atmosphere was great! The food was delicious and the staff was more helpful and kind than I could have ever asked for. They were all so great to us, they make you feel like a long time... More

We went for lunch on a Saturday. We arrived at 12:30 and were the only ones there for a few minutes. This is a very small building, but has a great feel. I felt like I had walked into a restaurant from the 1800's. There was a fire in the fireplace and games on the window sills. We could have... More
