They also have a great outdoor patio, so you can enjoy the San Diego sunshine while you watch the game.
We also like Princess Pub, which is a classic English-style pub that serves up excellent food and awesome drinks. If you happen to go on a Wednesday, you’ll be happy to find their Wing Wednesday special! They also run their Trivia Night on Wednesdays, so it is sure to be crowded! No matter, pull up to the bar and grab a beer while you watch your favorite team.
