Whale & Ale Restaurant Review

: The ambience at this San Pedro pub is authentically British, with plenty of oak panels and brass fittings. Roast lamb, beef and seafood dishes like classic fish ā€˜nā€™ chips 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 items include shepherd's pie made with filet mignon and leg of lamb, as well as bangers and mash. The venue does a serviceable job of acknowledging India's influence on English cuisine through the likes of grilled tandoori lamb chops and various curries. There are also some atypical selections such as twice-roasted duckling in Cumberland sauce. The best desserts are the sherry trifle and the sticky toffee pudding. After dinner, plan to enjoy a pint of good draught beer and, if you're here Thursday, Friday or Saturday evening, a little music.
