  • Mastication Monologues on Aug 06, 2013

    To those who actually got the Willy Wonka reference in my title, bravi, for I was figuratively transported to a restaurant that was a veritable horn o plenty of delicious food and exquisite beers...

  • Mastication Monologues on Jul 08, 2011

    As for the nightcap, I tried the Hoss beer which was a pale ale that was the complete opposite of how I started since it was a light translucent yellow with a taste of grass and a hint of lemon that gave the beverage a light and clean finish.

  • EaterGood day, governor. The second-floor of Bo Fowler's English gastropub has a great British feel that guests won't mind colonizing during every winter visit.

    55555 by Eater

  • Nick W.Everything is great, but definitely do the Scotch Egg and the cheese plate

    55555 by Nick W.

  • Zach SteinerGreat beer list. Try the house made bread board.

    55555 by Zach Steiner

  • Matt NBest burger in Chicago, simple but the flavor of the beef is incredible. The burger, beer, and bourbon deal on Tuesdays can't be beat.

    55555 by Matt N

  • EaterThis cult favorite British-inspired gastropub has a much better beer selection and the fish and chips are nearly as good as across the pond, and the burger is easily one of the best in Chicago.

    55555 by Eater

  • Redeye ChicagoHousemade bangers and mash with onion gravy ($15) are made with Illinois-raised pork, while the rotating draft ales hail from both coasts, and of course, Great Britain.

    55555 by Redeye Chicago

  • Chicago TribuneBeer is a huge part of the experience, no surprise there, and thankfully the servers can discuss the subject intelligently, or defer to O&E's in-house cicerone

    33333 by Chicago Tribune

  • Chicago TribuneBangers and mash feature house-made sausages and mashed Yukon golds with a sturdy onion gravy.

    55555 by Chicago Tribune

    55555 by Phillip E.

    55555 by Matthew R.

  • Grace C.The burger there is delicious! And btw... If you're sitting at the bar, they give out free whiskey shots at 10:22 pm (celebrating their broken clock tradition)!

    55555 by Grace C.

  • Josue M.Come for the Monday Burger Special. A burger with a shot and a beer for just 15 bucks. Ask for Shawn at the bar, he'll make you feel very welcomed. Oh, and ask what 10:22 means.

    55555 by Josue M.

  • Emily E.Slowest service ever. Waited 80 minutes for a burger that came out cold. Never again.

    11111 by Emily E.

    55555 by ISC C.
