Best British & Irish Pubs New York


Pubs have been centers for socializing in big cities and small hamlets in England and Ireland for hundreds of years. Their American counterparts carry on that same tradition, as well as providing a fun atmosphere to watch the ball game on a big screen TV. More formally known as "public houses," pubs are places to relax, enjoy a pint or two, and tuck in to pub grub like shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and bangers and mash. Browse our list of the Best British and Irish Pubs in New York.
