Where can a person find Welsh Rarebit in the SF Bay Area?

I want some old school English food. I'm dying for Welsh rarebit, and not tepid velveeta dumped on Wonderbread.

Does anyone have a lead to some good Welsh rarebit? Last time I had it, it was at the Cock N' Bull On Sunset Blvd at Doheney in West Hollywood before they closed it down in the late 80's/early 90's and turned it into a Jaguar dealership. That was a very old school English pub.

  1. It is on the on-line menus of Bar Tartine and Melt. Call them and check.

    1. No rarebit that I know of, but the Pig & Whistle is an old-school British pub.

      Bar Tartine's menu changes daily so definitely call ahead.

      1. I don't know how authentic it is, but I had Welsh rarebit at the Omelette Express in Railroad Square in Santa Rosa. I liked it!

        1. I know this doesn't answer your question, but have you tried making it at home? It's really really easy to make and the ingredients are things you probably already have in your fridge/cupboard.

          I've made this recipe and it was good:

          1. I've seen it on the menu at Crown & Crumpet, but I can't attest to how good it is.
