Bar Review: The Living Room at The Pawn
It has a balcony overlooking the tramlines of Johnston Road, and inside a mixture of Windsor chairs and leather banquettes, candle-covered old tables and second-hand books on the window sills. The clientele is mostly stylish, young and slightly older expats, both Western and Asian, and older middle-class local couples.
the rarities cover beers from Yorkshire brewery Samuel Smith, including its excellent Organic Pale Ale at HK$80, although you'll need to stop the waitress from pouring the bottle into a pint glass filled with ice cubes. Other beers are Californian craft ales such as Rogue Dry-Hopped Red Ale for HK$70, Marston's Pedigree and Leffe Blonde at HK$42 in a small glass, and jugs of draught lager for HK$250.
excellent for a long chat with an old friend. The menu covers all the pub favourites - Scotch egg (HK$75), pork pie (HK$55), shepherd's pie (HK$155), beer-battered fish and chips (HK$165), wagyu and Angus burger and chips (HK$165), and roast beef sandwich (HK$95).
