Best English Pub Phoenix 2013 - Rose & Crown
Aching for some Wee Britain in old Phoenix town? Rose & Crown is the pub to satiate all of your Anglo-Saxon cravings. Located in a renovated historic home right across from Pizzeria Bianco in Heritage Square, the bar specializes in craft beer, billiards and grease-a-licious eats. It's best to stop in Mondays for half-priced pub burgers, but the English bar also specializes in one of our favorite Canadian food forms every day — poutines [sic]. The thick, crisp English-style chips are perfectly seasoned and then smothered with cheddar cheese, brown gravy, and scallions. Though it isn't a classic take on poutine, it's definitely delicious enough to hold us over until our next stop over the northern border. Beyond all of that, Rose & Crown has a great porch and patio for soaking in the downtown scenery with some superb people-watching.
