Its nooks and crannies filled with little wooden tables, English beer signs and old kegs, this rabbit warren of a pub has 63 brews on tap. On warm evenings people sit on the alley patio, sip British and Belgian beers and locally brewed Craftsman ales, and talk for hours. The jukebox is stuffed with ‘70s and ‘80s rock, and the clientele—students, beer lovers, JPL scientists, date-nighters—is more interested in conversation and beer than the singles’ scene. The English food is, well, English food.
