Whale & Ale Restaurant Review

: The ambience at this San Pedro pub is authentically British, with plenty of oak panels and brass fittings. All that is good and bad about English pub food is on display. Roast lamb, beef and seafood dishes are reliably good, but vegetables are sometimes overcooked and pastry items occasionally suffer from sitting too long. Roasted prime rib comes in small (Anne Boleyn), medium (Whale of a Cut) and large (Henry VIII) portions. Traditional dishes include shepherd's pie made with filet mignon and leg of lamb, as well as bangers and mash, and an all-day English breakfast with fried eggs, a banger, bacon, grilled tomato and baked beans. There are also some atypical items like twice-roasted duck in Cumberland sauce and pan-roasted venison loin. Desserts are good, but on the sweet side; the best are the sherry trifle or sticky toffee pudding. Plan some time after dinner to enjoy a pint of good draught beer and perhaps some music from the pianist.
