Phoenix’s first (and only surviving) English pub lives up to its pedigree: Portraits of Queen Elizabeth, photos of Buckingham Palace, and other UK-related ephemera adorn every nook and cranny. The servers all wear Union Jack tank tops. Footy matches air on TVs above the bar while The Smiths and Elvis Costello blare from the jukebox. And traditional selections like bangers and mash, pasties, and fish and chips are cranked out by the kitchen. (Come on Sundays for roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.) Moving beyond the British Isles, G&D’s bar has the largest selection of imported draught beer in the Valley. There’s also free Texas Hold’em on Sundays, a favorite pastime of owner (and native Englishman) David Wimberley, who got yelled at by Bar Rescue host Jon Taffer for his card-playing habits on a 2016 episode of the show. Catch Wimberley haunting the front patio and he’ll tell you the tale himself, likely peppered with enough vulgarities to make Her Royal Highness blush.
