Have visited here intermittently for years - the food is good = traditional Scottish/British food, huge portion sizes, reasonable prices, very friendly staff - big room with classic bar at far end, wee shop selling food/candies to go - where I get my black pudding and real bacon! Also, can pick up British newspapers with latest news for free near... More

I take my mom (85) out to eat every month to get out of the house and enjoy some excellent food and this is one of the places on our list! The service is always first rate and you are never ignored or forgotten. The owners who are a very gracious and well versed in first rate service are a... More

My family traditionally celebrates Burns Night every year and being new to Burbank, we made our reservations weeks in advance to attend the celebration at Buchanan Arms. The cost was $30 a head, so we expected a more formal affair. Upon arriving, we were put in the far corner behind the bar, next to the bathrooms. This seemed fine at... More

Cadbury's chocolates are back! Hence spending a lot of money in the shop. Bangers were o.k., could have been a bit spicier. My husband enjoyed his fish'n'chips. Reasonably priced for the LA area, friendly service.

Friend asked me to meet him here for dinner. Balked at first....a pub on Burbank Blvd in Burbank??? But, there is an extensive menu and an extensive beer and ale menu as well. Plus, a relaxing pub feel to the experience. The Guinness French Onion soup was tremendous. Then, there was the 70's music and the singing. Welcome to Pub... More

I lucked into going to Buchanan Arms on a night when they had music, and it was just a great time all of the way around. The service was excellent, and the food good (although the fried foods were a bit too greasy, perhaps this is the nature of British fried foods, however). The bangers were great. Fries terrific, Gravy... More

Old school since 1977. I ordered the Shepherd's Pie which seems to be as popular as the Fish & Chips. I could've shared this plate since it was more than enough food for me, I actually took a doggy bag home. I like this neighborhood English pub, especially the old school look to it. I don't understand why some people... More

A charity org.I belong to had a meeting here amid great pints (Speckled Hen is an old Yorkshire favourite of mine) and fantastic Fish and Chips and traditional savory pies. I had the mushroom pie (I will be going back for their steak and kidney) and was smacking my chops for hours afterward. A great place to watch 'the footie'... More

I come here on the regular for a pint. Very laidback atmosphere and good pub food (fish and chips are so good!) and not overrun by the young, hipster crowd. Lots of older people, families. The service is great and hilarious even (the British waiter made fun of my friend when she said she didn't want peas with her fish... More

I have been going there for over thirty years and now that I don't live as close I really miss drinking and dining there regularly. The establishment is run by a Scottish family and all the meals are pretty much traditional. Good array of UK beers on tap as well as others and a full bar to complete the complement... More
