London Gastropub Restaurant Review

: Dominated by a long wooden bar with a lively sports-oriented crowd, this unpretentious, no-frills eatery in Old Town Monrovia has the flavor of a traditional British pub. There are about two dozen beers on tap, ranging from local craft brews to the obligatory Guinness. Starters include a sausage plate with red chimichurri, flatbreads, and a popular off-menu item of deep-fried olives. They’re nicely breaded and offered with lemon aïoli, but the pimento-stuffed olives are so salty it's hard getting through the generous serving. Mac ‘n’ cheese is a hearty American take on pub food, and, of course, there’s a burger (with four cheeses and caramelized onions), too. The batter on a huge portion of fish ‘n’ chips is heavy, but in the world of fried foods, that’s hardly a capital crime. For dessert, you’ll find Nutella panini or bread pudding with Jack Daniel’s sauce.
