    A very wonderful courtyard sits behind the rear dining room of this Upper East Side restaurant. On the menu there’s classic pub fare like Scotch eggs, chicken liver parfaits, and crumpets. Read more

    Cozy neighborhood British gastropub. Recommend: scotch egg, fish and chips with mushy peas, pot pies and sticky toffee pudding. Great beer selection.

    Bangers and mash, trio of sausages, the lamb pie, the ploughman’s pork pie...It’s a hint that Hicks, who’s from the Cotswolds, has a bistro background; he was formerly a chef at Orsay and La Goulue.

    Relaxing Saturday brunch. Nothing that is going to knock your socks off, but good staples and fun garden patio if it’s nice out. Avocado toast eggs benny and fish n chips pictured.

    Very cute pub with a surprising number of tables, including a charming courtyard. Scotch Egg, burger, and steak and mushroom pie were all solid.

    Their bacon burger with sesame buns is very good, one of the best I tasted. Good selection of beer and generous selection of wine. It’s a cozy place in a residential neighborhood.

    On the expensive side but completely worth it if you love British food and beer. On my last visit I had Fullers London Porter, a great pub curry and sticky toffee pudding. Very friendly service too.

    I think I had the greatest mashed potatoes of my life here. No joke. If they have the steak and kidney pie, I highly recommend pushing all things aside to make room for this monumental dish. Amazing.

    Try the city's deepest collection of British classics, from plump Meyers of Keswick sausages on a bed of mash, to lesser-known Anglo dishes like kedgeree. Read more

    So good! Try the chocolate pie with sea salt ice cream for dessert. Make a reservation or be prepared to sit at the communal table. Nice outdoor area, decent beer list.

    Super friendly staff, great service! As good as brown British food can possibly be (which is pretty good surprisingly) 👍🏼

    If you're in search of authentic English pub food, this is your place. While we love the fish and chips, the JWF burger with bacon can't be missed.

    Closest thing to a proper British pub in NYC. Chicken liver pate was great. Personally prefer soft/medium scotch eggs but still great here. Roast was good.

    Grab a stool on the far end of the bar. You'll want to make friends with your bartenders - Stuart and Dan. Order the scotch egg if you're eating!!

    Food is very English but delicious. Try the cocktails--they make great use of just beer and wine. And if you're lucky enough to get Renee as your waitress, all the better!

    Really quiet for early lunch; great roasted chicken salad, but the standouts are the English pies.

    The house made marmalade on goat cheese & potted citrus crab among many standouts. For you beer drinkers, don't miss out on the St. Feuillien Triple 9L Salmanazar. You'll thanks us later!

    The Fish & Chips are absolutely delicious (and this is coming from a Brit). Nice place with outdoor seating.

    Jones Wood Foundry recreates the wood-paneled pubs of olde with a sleek blend of pomp and panache. Go for an old-school serving of cottage pie or a beer-battered haddock with irresistible tartar.

    Fantastically fluffy, scrumptious goat cheese omelette with a fabulous atmosphere. A true Upper East Side gem!

    The pies are so flavorful - tender meats & flaky pastry. Homemade hummus was also so awesome. Skip the grilled salmon, it’s not bad just a bit bland.

    Not easy to accommodate a vegan but they rose to the occasion. Loved the tomato eggplant soup and the asparagus; great wine list too!

    Wait, the Brits have good food!? Who knew. Brunch menu was delicious, especially bangers and mash. Note: no liquor license so only beer/wine, no bloody marys.

    Try the white bait fish appetizer if they have it. It's an entire minnow looking fish deep fried with tarter sauce on the side. It's an adventure for the table.

    Tuna tartar and 🍺&🍷 selections!! Very cozy atmosphere. Good place to get a drink and avoid frat boy parties on the UES.
