I and my girlfriend visited this place after our trip to Busch Gardens for the day. She wanted to find something that was different and off the beaten path. Having only been to one other English Pub I didn’t know what to think about going to another one. I am glad I did however because the food was delicious, the... More

My husband and I lives in England for several years, so we are particular about pubs. This one hit it right on the mark. It had a lovely outdoor seating area. Our server was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the traditional fish a chips which were delicious and the side of Stilton fondue for my... More

This is one of those great out of the way local spots that you just love to find on vacation. Wonderful semi-secluded patio in front. We both had the fish and chips and it was the best we had ever had. Super crispy and incredibly fresh fish. Be sure to use some of the homemade tarter sauce which was so... More

Really enjoyed this place. The waiter went out of his way to accommodate our large group who came in staggered.. He still got everyone a drink and order right away. The food was great. The waiter even better and the atmosphere -- English-1960ish was fun!

Weather permitting we like to sit outside. House spinach salad always a must. First sh and chips good light batter, curry shrimp and black rice and lamb chops are what we usually order.

A friendly, comfortable restaurant that serves a variety of beers and wine but is really known by locals as a wonderful place to get a great meal.

This place is so excellent. It has a crazy selection of draught brews and a great laid-back patio atmosphere. Definitely one of my favorite finds and the most criminally underrated places in Tampa. The steak sandwich is TO DIE FOR. Get it with sweet potato fries. The dip is killer. The meat slices are a little thick but whatever, I... More

Mad Dog's is a wonderful South Tampa restaurant and watering hole. There is an active bar and both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is varied with a combination of bar food plus excellent entree's. We particularly like the grilled salmon dish, which is as good as any in South Tampa. The atmosphere is informal and very pleasant.

My friend and I sat down at 12:45 pm and by 1:30 pm we still did not receive our lunch. My friend told our server at about 1 pm that she was in a rush and had to go to a meeting. There was no explanation for the delay. No drink refill during the time period. Nothing. We had to... More
