Pissed, Ratted and Wankered at the Pub

The Pub

4200 Kilgore Road -- Hampton, VA 23666

(757) 838-2748

(Pissed Ratted Wankered = DRUNK in Britian)

I’m not gonna lie, there are some things that bring me an exorbitant amount of pleasure to think about. And it just so happens that the thought of some revolutionary patriots determined to fight for liberty dumping over a ton of unfairly taxed tea into Boston harbor in a simultaneous and proverbial middle finger to the King of England is one of them.

I mean, England has been our staunch ally for a long time but it has always seemed to me that its more of a “befriend the bully or suffer his wrath” kind of relationship.

That being said, these blokes can drink.

So I will ignore the fact they still ridiculously pay tribute to a Royal family (if it was me I would defund all those pre-Madonna (prima donna) elitists and make the Queen get a job at the local Wal-Mart as a door greeter with a roll of happy face stickers)

Oh yeah and I will also ignore the fact they believe that Sharia law has some place in their culture…

But I digress.

Back to the beer . . . Oh my, ok listen to this:

On Draft: Bass Ale, Boddingtons Pub Ale, Old Speckled Hen, Newcastle Brown Ale, Fullers Extra Special, Fullers London Porter, Youngs Double Chocolate Stout, Tetleys English Ale, Stella, Hoegaarden, Leffe, “Rotating Cask”, Belhaven Scottish Ale, Belhaven Twisted Thistle, Tennents Lager, Smithwicks, Harp, Guinness, O’Haras Irish Red, Magner Cider, Jefferson Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout, Monty Python Holy Grail Ale, Dogfish IPA, and Carlsberg Lager

-- In the words of my 15 year old: “OMG”


They actually have a beer that is fermenting as we sit there… it is served at room temperature and if you drink it today it will be different than two weeks from now… umm heck yeah.

Can’t decide?? How about the offering that rivals communion at Sunday mass . . . A BEER FLIGHT . . . 4 – 5 oz. Samples so you can take your time deciding how best and most appropriate to get your buzz on. Genius.

Wait did I mention the Bartender Chris was a absolutely awesome . . . (Minus he was wearing a dress.. ok . . . kilt . . . but in the good ole US it’s still a dress) Knowledgeable, cool, dedicated and a fellow beer lover . . .

Well we order some food (no idea why with all those beers… but I was told it was good) and again The Pub did not disappoint. Amazing.

The Sheppard’s pie was perfect, the Dip Sampler: Piping hot and delicious, the fried pickles: need I say more?

Had the curry fries as well, and that red curry has got to be an active in ingredient in Meth.

Look . . . all in all . . . this place was great . . . (the cleanest I have ever seen in my life) not over priced in anyway, awesome food, the female staff dresses in mini kilts, the beer selection was second to none, the female staff dresses in mini kilts, ambiance was spot on, selction to be rivaled by none in any department, décor on point, and did I mention, the female staff dresses in mini kilts.

Few more stats to close with: 46 Bottle Beers, 18 Single Malt Scotches (served the right way… always neat and if you want to destroy your scotch they will provide a water back… with water from SCOTLAND yes… so at least kill it the right way) 14 Small Batch Bourbons (THEY HAVE A FREAKIN BOURBON SAMPLER TOO!) – Wine, Mixed drinks, etc etc etc… they have it all.

Oh yeah, they have a throne for men with more than 7 in their

party to sit in.

Need I say more?

Rating: Im still there . . . haven’t left . . . but if I do . . . I am buying the shirt . . . for everyone I know as Christmas presents


  1. You forgot to mention the rotating taps!! That change every two weeks or something crazy like that! Love this place and I never mind the drive from Ptown to Hampton for fried pickles and a holy grail ale.. YUM!

  2. I always turn my shot glass upside down when I take one because it means"F@$k the Queen"
