The word "pub" originates from the term "public house" which references a community gathering place or focal point within the community for socializing and sharing stories, daily events, and in our case, great food with a great beverage.

Please Note: Online reservations do not mean you are guaranteed space within the Game Room or Boot Room. To check the availability of these rooms please call 646.414.6223. These rooms are closed to the public anytime there is a private event booked. Thank you!!

Really great food and cool vibe but TERRIBLE service. Entire place was empty and we asked to be put somewhere a little further from the speakers but instead were put right under a speaker and had music blasting on us all night which made conversation difficult. The servers just weren't friendly and looked miserable to be there. Had to ask for our check at the end of the night 3 separate times before we finally got it. Would love to go back because their curry fries, shepherds pie and chicken pot pie were perfectly made but only if service improves.

This place is amazing. If you’re looking for a friendly atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices, this is your place. I ended up there the first time because my wife was shopping down the street. I had such a good time my whole family came back for brunch the next day.

Five out of eight of us enjoyed our meals. However, we arrived early and were seated at the back of an almost empty restaurant not far from the bar, yet waited for more than 10 minutes for a server. The server arrived only after a person from our party went to the bar to request service. Additionally, the server only checked back with us after we asked the food runner for another drink. The bathrooms were dirty with paper all over the floor; this should not be at 4 o’clock in the afternoon!

A hidden gem when you fancy a pint at a proper bar or for casual dining with friends.
The bar prices are a little high but there is a great selection of draught beers and a very full range of wines and spirits.
The food is very reasonably priced with good quality, presentation and portion sizes.
The bar can be quite busy and the regular clients definitely get served before the tourists but, the vibe is friendly and welcoming.
You aren't spoilt for choice in this area of NY but if you're passing this is a great place to quench your thirst or gather with friends.

First time here. When we finally found which door was for the restaurant, we could smell a very strong disinfectant. We were glad they had cleaned the place but it was almost overwhelming. My friend and I both ordered hamburgers. They were good but a little dry. We ordered them well done but I always order my burgers well done & they aren't dry. The fries were very good. Also, the service was kind of 'lax'. We hardly got refills and once had to ask for them. So, I doubt if I will go there again. Just too many things that happened there that don't happen at other restaurants.

Went as family to Freedom Tower and ate dinner here. Place is downstairs and had a "B" health rating. Ordered appetizers and burgers. Chicken wings were burnt in fryer with sauce over them, just didn't eat them. Really gross wings! Didn't even tell waiter because we wouldn't eat a new batch. Burgers were just blah at best. Service was good. Always asking if we needed anything and refilling water.

We went there for St. Patrick's day, just two of us hoping to get a good Irish pub experience. They didn't have any idea we had a reservation so we ended up waiting for a table and then were cramped back in a corner. They were friendly employees but the food was only fair and, I know it's NYC and St. Patrick's Day, but $9 for a plastic cup of Guinness? Food was fair but expensive too...it was a rowdy place which was fun for St. Paddy's but when you're stuck in a corner away from the scene it translates to just noise. I'd recommend to go if you just want to sit at the bar and have a drink but not for food or fun dining.

So this joint is more of a bar with lots of beers than an eating place, but my college student and I were wanting comfort food after a long plane trip and were not disappointed. The bangers and mash with onion gravy was amazing. He had a lamb burger and also loved it. I'm not a beer guy, so I had a long island iced tea, which was fine but I prefer them a little sweeter. The cheesecake was solid, not amazing but very satisfying. It was not at all crowded when we went in around 7PM on a Wednesday night (no surprise there), but enough people were there so it didn't seem dead. Service was good, keeping in touch without being annoying.
