Robin Hood British Pub

Copy Link

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.

Lucky Baldwin's Pub

Pasadena staple Lucky Baldwin’s has been playing to the Brit-loving masses for more than two decades. And while the focus has traditionally been on the company’s expansive beer collection, don’t forget the extended menu of classic meals as well.

The Fox and Hounds

Studio City Brit pub The Fox and Hounds is as much a sports bar as it is a home for classic British meals, including everyday fare like fish and chips and a few different takes on traditional English breakfast on weekends.

The Pikey

Copy Link

Available as part of the brunch menu at this longtime Hollywood restaurant, The Pikey opened partially in the former Ye Coach & Horses, a legendary pub and watering hole. Much of that pub interior remains in the bar area, which gives this English breakfast the perfect ambience to match with its polished traditional English breakfast.

The Cat & Fiddle Pub & Restaurant

While it may not look like the most thoroughly traditional full English breakfast in town, the AM offering at The Cat & Fiddle is no less delicious. It helps that the family running this Hollywood institution has more than 30 years under their belt cooking classics just like this.

The Village Idiot

Copy Link

Melrose staple the Village Idiot is the quiet kind of British gastropub, working a menu that does indeed offer fish and chips and a burger, as well as a few variations on traditional breakfast available during brunch.

Cecconi's

Copy Link

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.

Ye Olde King's Head

Copy Link

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.

Cock 'n Bull

Copy Link

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.

London's Pub & Grill

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.

The Auld Dubliner

Though technically listed as a “full Irish breakfast” on the menu, the 15-year-old Auld Dubliner in Long Beach’s signature breakfast does indeed carry all of the same ingredients as the more commonly-seen full English breakfast.
