What's the best thing to eat/drink at Robin Hood's British Pub in Burbank

slowcooker Apr 11, 2007 09:28 AM

? Heading there tonight for some dinner and drunk Scrabble. Seems like everyone likes the fish n chips. But I was curious if there are any hidden gems on the menu and/or any exceptional beers on tap.

    Have to say, the fish 'n chips went down easy, but for the next twelve hours I felt like I had a pool of frying oil in my stomach. The hot Scotch egg was incredible. Overall I prefer the food at the King's Head in SM.

      I find it less authentic and more to touristy people's taste a Ye Olde King's Head..althought they did a fabulous tea party there for my bridal shower!

      I think the more touristy location of Sm is what leads to that.

      I'm not talking out of my posterior...I am british in blood, borne to ex pats who took their budding chowhound "home" frequently.

      The Robin Hood is an exp-pat pub, and frequented by ex pats almos every hour of operation. King's Head is full of tourists and beach goers, mainly because it's in SM between the pier and thir st Prom.

        Never really thought of myself as a touristy person...

      The pub isn't in Burbank, it's on Burbank Blvd in Sherman Oaks, right near the Burbank/Woodman intersection!

      the Fish and Chips are wonderful. I happen to like the Steak and Kidney Pie. My husband enjoys the curry pie.

      We also both enjoy the ploughman's lunch, some cheese, bread, pickled onions and a good slice of pork pie with the egg right in the middle.

      The sausage rolls are good, so is the scotch egg.

      I enjoy the King Richard's salad, but once it wasn't so good.

      Their specials can be good, or not. Hard to tell.

      For dessert, get the golden sponge cake soaked in treacle served with warm custard. Ohhhh yum!

      For beer, anything English on tap is OK. Or you could ask for a pim's or a shandy.
