I've never been to the pub you're talking about, but it peaked my interest. I found a place in Sebastian named the Pig & Whistle Pub
. Sounds English to me!
Could that be the place you went?
Total English Pub with English Fare...try their Shepards pie also..
I'm not knocking the place. It sounds great. And definately my type of place. But Tara, isn't Shepherd's Pie a meal with Irish origins?
I think the Irish would have something to say if the English tried to claim the dish as their own.
While St. Patty's Day brings out the Irish beer, here are some of my usual English Beers that are most common to pubs around here:
Bass Pale Ale (good w/ Guiness or Mackeson XXX Stout)
Fuller's 1845 Ale (Nutty, and my preference over Newcastle. Plus, it's practically an English institution)
Mackeson XXX Stout (a nice smooth altrnative to Guiness)
Newcastle Brown Ale (my wife's favorite English brew)
Old Peculier Yorkshire Ale (if you've never had Yorkshire Ale, this is a good one to start on.)
Royal Oak Pale Ale (medium pale Ale, nice warm up to Whitbread and the RamRod)
Samuel Smith's India Ale (One of my favs)
Whitbread Traditional Pale Ale (Gotta have my Hops!)
Young's RamRod Special Bitter Ale (bitter? sure, but hoppy, which makes me Happy, and a little Sneezy (since me+hops = sneezing) but not definately not Grumpy.)
