OUTSTANDING place for BRITISH CUISINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – My family and i ordered the scotch eggs for an appetizer. They were delicious. I ordered the pasties with bubble and squeak. WHOLE MEAL OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!! i am a major fan of english and scottish cuisine. i have ancestors that still live in scotland and england, i felt like i was back in england while eating lunch. I was visiting from st. louis for vacation and ate at the lion and rose restaurant before flying home. st. louis does not have very many pub type places to eat, so when i am in san antonio, it is a real treat to be able to eat at the lion and rose pub. I dont know what else i can say about this place other than it was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)
Jolly good mates – This place is amazing the menu and selection is great everything is good! An awesome place to go with your pals and relax! an even better place to go watch a good soccer (futbol) match!
Bad Service – This was our first time here. My bf was really craving a burger, and we saw the review on the great pub burger. We arrived, and were not greeted or seated for almost 10 minutes. The place was not even busy. When we sat down, the waitress came and took our drink order, did not make any suggestions or introduce herself. Just took our drink order and left. She came back with the drinks and wanted to take our order, but we weren't ready so asked for 5 more minutes. She never came back until 15 minutes later, after the table next to use who came after us were already being served their food. Then when the food came, she accidentally dropped some of our food. She looked down at it and mumbled about it really quick, and served our food and left. Did not even bother to clean it up or bother to check up on us until we were done with our food. To our disappointment, the food was not as great as we hoped. Lacked some flavor. To top this whole experience, she failed to tell us that our CC would be charged a pre 20%. I called the restaurant and asked the manager about the over-charge I saw, and he was just like oh.. 'CC payments get charged a 20% surcharge to cover tip, and then is refunded later.' The waitress did not even mention this at all!! To think, what if it was a huge bill and with payments pending or checks being written? We as the customer would have been cheated. DISHONEST!!!!!
Best Irish Food in the City – TOtally Awesome. Great Food, atmosphere, and service. Parking is great and although it is tucked away in the corner it was worth the search. We sat in the non-smoking section which was closed off by full doors so the pesky smoke never bothered us like some places that only have it sectioned off by a half wall. Great experience!
Wonderful Atmosphere – You'll feel like you are in Britain when you enter this establishment! It's beautiful inside. Their selection of beer is a bit limited but you can get some interesting mix with Harp or Guiness & Pear Cider - very tasty! But they have been out of "Old Speckled Hen" beer on two occasions when I used to go. I guess next time I go back I'll call ahead to make sure they have 'the hen'. Food is bland, but then again it's British/English fare, so thats how it is. Go for the atmosphere. Bring friends! Have fun!
