Far from the actual British Isles set in the proverbial silver sea is Mayflower Pub as close to the real thing as it gets in Northern California. The place is hopping with dart games in the bar and hearty pub fare in the restaurant, including what aficionados have described as a particularly toothsome steak and kidney pie. There is also shepherd's pie, fish and chips and a sherry trifle that is rich and maybe a bit too strong for the kids who have their own menu here. The mood is rollicking but not riotous for the local regulars with the wait staff making everything run smoothly in the party atmosphere.
Preety quiet on the weeknights - where you can talk. I like the woodwork, giving it a faux Irish Pub feeling. There's a trivia night, which I haven't tried out (Thursdays?). Pool table too. The weekends are busier but still this is a place where you can have a conversation while enjoying a Guinness or whiskey sour.
