Olde English

Olde English is a nice & relaxing spot for some afternoon food & drinks. I went on Mothers Day, and they were a little off of their game after having sold out of a bunch of food & beers the night before, but still a nice & leisurely afternoon. 

 One of the best things about the Olde English is that you can bring your furry friends and sit outside. 

Our food took a while to come out, and I think my “black & blue” steak was the first thing out, then got to sit under a heat lamp while the rest of the food cooked until it was grey and well-done. Although this color of grey in a steak is what my mom & I call “Nana’s version of rare”. So I suppose it is an English preparation of rare. I usually figure anything I order rare will come out medium-rare to medium, but grey all the way through – yowza.

They were good about recooking a new steak, though. 

 The fish & chips are definitely the way to go. Solid fry job, flaky fish.

 Chicken tikka masala – they were out of rice, so they put the chicken in a bowl and served a side of pita bread. 

 Once everyone was mostly done with their food, I got my steak. Yay, super rare this time! I’m not sure if this was supposed to come with some kind of side sauce? But it was a pretty solid bar steak. If you have time, give it a shot, but if you just want a solid dish, def go for the fried fish.


I like having a place you can just hang around during a sunday afternoon with a few drinks, and your furry friends. I also can’t wait to try the Birthday Teacup, hehe.

  1. That birthday cup is an exercise of poor taste. Beer should never touch ice. Or dry ice for that matter.

  3. The Fish and Chips is to die for and the Double Chocolate beer is tasty as well!

  5. The beer doesn't actually touch the dry ice, its in a faux tea bag.

  7. By "faux teabag" do you mean a mesh bag that liquid permeates the bag and then becomes cold? If so, right on. The point here is beer isn't supposed to be ice cold, and any place trying to imitate an English pub should know that since drinking beers "as cold as the Rockies" doesn't exist in England or Europe in general.
