Reviewers - Thanks for saving Valentine's Day – This is more a review of the reviews than the restaurant. My bus goes past this restaurant every morning and I thought it would be a fun place for my boyfriend and I to celebrate Valentine's Day. After checking out the reviews already written, it is clear that this is not a place for good (consistent) service, good food, or romance. So thanks to all that have written about their experiences - you may have saved our Valentine's Day!

Editorial Review – Seattle's answer to the traditional English drinking establishment, this popular pub features an impressive beer menu and plenty of pub grub from across the pond.

Fun place! – I came here for trivia on Monday night. It was super fun! I met some cool people and the bartender was great. The food is horrendous, but I wasn't surprised as English food is like that. I ordered a pretzel and it was flash fried like carnival food. Aside from the worst food menu in the world, it has excellent and attentive service and a good crowd. Happy hour is fun too!

Worst restaurant in Seattle – This was the rudest I've ever been treated at a restaurant. The hostess sat us at a falling down table and when we asked to move, the waiter slapped the menus down and was snide in his remarks about moving. Then 4, yes, 4, waitstaff ignored us. They made eye contact but totally ignored us. They sat others in the same area and waited attentively on those patrons, but ignored us totally. I will NEVER go back to this cheap version of a pub.

Its a dark hole in the wall – This food is standard pub fair, nothing exciting. the service is ok and the beer is pretty good. The inside is pretty dark and feels quite dungeon like. If you can I suggest sitting on the patio. Mixed drinks are mostly ice so if you've come for a buzz, get a beer.

Fun place . . . Authenticity is in the eye of the beholder – Fun place to grab lunch. A replica of what a stereo-type English pub.....so authenticity is in the eye of the beholder. Wait staff is courteous and attentive, while most of the food appears so-so (although our group of four only sampled four different dishes). That said, try the Jameson's chicken dish. The whiskey cream sauce was pretty good, as was the Thai Chicken Salad -- pleasantly reserved on the peanut sauce so you could taste the chicken and other parts of salad. Nice list of beers and ales.

great for a pub, maybe not for a date – The E&C is a great place for work parties or an after work drink. They also have a billiards room below that they let people use for private parties at no extra charge. You can bring kids in if you need to, but I wouldnt say its the greatest place for a date. At night they turn down the lights and fill the place with candles, but its still pretty loud, and its best to make a reservation if it's the weekend.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name – In my case that is... When it comes to the E&C, I've always had good times. Starting with the office parties, to the mid week lunches, to the Friday happy hours mulling the week over half a dozen pints of Boddington with mi mates. The bartenders are well rehearsed and friendly too. I just wish I could have a reserved sign permanently posted for my seat at the end of the bar.

GREAT PATIO – Went here for happy hour mid week, great value and a really cool 3 level patio. Perfect place for people watching. we had nachos which were good, and they have a pretty big selection of micro brews. I would recomend this place for happy hour and outside dining.

Not authentic – I've been twice and find their phoniness of authenticity the worst thing ... the Welsh Burger? C'mon.

Though on the positive side, we went for a big work holiday party in their billiards room and the service was fantastic (even if the beer prices are much too high).

Do yourself a favor and go to the George & Dragon in Fremont if you want authentic English food.
