Erin W. of San Jose says: “The best pub in Santa Cruz. The beer selection is awesome, the wait staff is super friendly, prompt, and on top of their shit, and the food is excellent. My favorite is the bangers and mash – the mash potatoes are so incredibly good and are topped with cheese! Yum. My boyfriend likes to get the super spicy wing sauce. Watch out – it’s the real deal. Good job, Parish. You’re doin’ pub grub right.”
