THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Little Britain Restaurant Review

: This unassuming little eatery turns out some of the best English pub fare in Pasadena. Located in a largely residential part of the Crown City, the place is a simple, inviting room dressed up with photos of London. Start with addictive puff pastry sausage rolls or chips bathed in curry sauce before moving on to classic pub dishes like fish ‘n’ chips (Icelandic cod with a delicate beer batter), bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, or Cornish pasty. Flying well under the radar, this is a nice place to know about, whether or not you’re a transplanted Brit. For dessert, there’s a variety of homemade pies.
