Pub & Kitchen
1946 Lombard Street
Philadelphia, PA 19146
Chef Jonathan McDonald, who formerly turned out wacky molecular gastronomy fare at Snackbar, is now making uncomplicated but utterly delicious bar food at Pub & Kitchen. One part English tavern, one part gastropub, P&K serves up burgers and onion rings upgraded with top - notch ingredients. The dining room is so polished and inviting, it’s hard to believe it was most recently the dingy, dive - y Chaucer’s.

Truly a great bar with a stellar cocktail list, a diverse selection of beers, and a well thought out wine list that is not full of the ubiquitous "Mark West Pinot Noir".
But they don't stop there!
The Foie Gras and Rabbit Terrine is so good I am drooling as I type this thinking about it.
They are known for the Burger but their entrees are fantastic.
Service is casual but more upscale than any other neighborhood bar, My server wiped my table after first course and replaced dirty silver. Not sure why people hate, one of the best in the city for sure.

Very disappointing - way overpriced.

The atmosphere of P&K is cozy with a feeling that you are in British Pub. We had beers at the bar and lost track of time and place. We would of ordered food from the reasonably priced menu but we had just eaten at the tiny Village Whiskey a couple blocks away. Can't wait to return to both places!

Really wanted the fish and chips, but was informed that at lunch that wasn't available. Most of the specials for lunch on a Saturday were more breakfast or brunch oriented. The burger was good, and the large order of fries was very tasty. The omelet was fresh, but again, I wanted something more in the line of a true lunch dish. Nill was over $40 for lunch with no wine, and 1 club soda and my ice tea. Not worth the money.

After walking the streets with friends for close to 30 minutes we finally found Pub & Kitchen. The place has no sign!!! We asked a girl on the corner where P&K is.. she laughed and pointed to the front door. Best meal I have had in a long time. Gnocchi is amazing and great beer selection. Nice menu with a great focus on fresh ingredients.

earlier reviews of pricing are unwarranted, had many dishes from the outstanding burger to a scallop dish with Ramps and Morels that was perfect. It was obvious they put care into the dishes and ingredients. I love the bar though, the staff is very friendly and inviting. I went in for a birthday and not sure how they found out but they gave us champagne to celebrate.
I love it.

I love this place, and the prices are in-line for any restaurant of this quality. Definitely check it out, especially for the brunch.

This place is top-notch and the attention to detail (for a casual spot!) is amazing. The scene is trendy and cool but low-key and laid back. I love the food and especially the brunch - Best Brunch around - you gotta try the home made cured salmon plate with soft pretzel....yummmmm! Omelets are perfect too.

I have to agree that it is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. Service isn't great, but OK. Our waitress kept trying to clear plates when we were still very obviously eating. Food was good, a bit pricey. Am not sure if we will go back. Menu a bit limited.

Delicious food. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere mix - relaxed outside eating, welcoming dining room, laid back bar. Welcomed addition to the neighborhood.

Read another review about prices. Not sure where they went. The neighborhood doesn't seem economically repressed and the prices are right for any spot in Philly. Great atmosphere.
