Whale & Ale Restaurant Review

The ambience at this San Pedro pub is authentically British, with plenty of oak panels and brass fittings.

Great food at in an old English setting. What could be better?

Great food, not your typical bar food.

Wonderful place to dine. We always enjoy coming here. Food is great, great atmosphere, friendly service. Andrew, the owner and host, is marvelous. Check their calendar for special events and entertainment.
