The Valley hides more than a few British pub gems, Robin Hood in Sherman Oaks among them. The 36-year staple is still turning out pints, bangers, and breakfasts on the regular, along with plenty of American fare, of course. Best of all, they serve a full English breakfast here every single day.

West Hollywood, CA 90069

Despite being an anchor as an upscale Italian restaurant for greater West Hollywood, Cecconi’s does indeed also serve a full English breakfast. The daytime dish is a nod to the company’s beginnings in Mayfair in 1978.

Santa Monica, CA 90401

Visit Website

Ye Olde King’s Head (or just King’s Head, for those more familiar) is undeniably the most famous British pub in Santa Monica, and maybe all of LA. That’s due in no small part to the pub’s location so close to the beach, but it’s also a reflection of the place’s 40-plus-year legacy.

Santa Monica, CA 90405

Visit Website

While other British pubs may earn more praise, there’s something so charming about the low-key Cock ‘n Bull Pub on Lincoln Boulevard in Santa Monica. The place only has to focus on showing soccer, pouring pints, and offering classic British pub fare, and it more than excels in all three arenas.

Artesia is far less known than, say, Santa Monica for its British expat population, but that hasn’t stopped London’s Pub & Grill from becoming a mainstay along Artesia Boulevard — particularly when it comes to cold beer and weekend plates of breakfast.
