Two places with pub food and good variety of Brit beverages on tap-
1. Robin Hood in the Valley, on Burbank Blvd just east of Woodman Ave. They have wonderful fish and chips (light airy batter) and good variety of beers, ales, ciders (inc. pear) on tap.
2. Cat and Fiddle, a few Brit dishes - pub food, scotch eggs, sausage rolls H&P sauce etc. More of a regular bar. On Sunset between Wilcox and Cherokee in Hollywood.
Haven't been to these yet, but I've been curious so I might swing by one of these day. If you go, please let us know how it is and I'll do the same.
There's Ye Coach and Horses on Sunset Blvd, down the block west from the Guitar Center. Heard good things about the drinks and atmosphere.
In Studio City on Ventura is Fox and Hounds. It gets pretty crowded on the weekends when there's live bands.
Both have good reviews from Citysearch.
My parents frequent The Olde Ship in Fullerton.
From Cuisinenet: "The menu features steak and kidney pie, Scottish bridie and 18 draught beers. Their newest dessert: spotted dick."
