SF Weekly's Description

There's a veritable produce section worth of fresh fruit (and mint) on the bar used for the cocktails here. There's a spread of cheeses and crackers each weeknight for patrons to help themselves. There's a fireplace in case the mojitos or greyhounds aren't warming enough. Maybe the word is classy. Maybe it's chill. Lion Pub works as a precursor to a rowdy night on the town, or as a nightcap if you live in the area and want to bathe in its red glow before last call. After all, this Pac Heights chestnut and its well-mannered patrons don't keep returning just for the brie.

    I like coming to this bar before heading out somewhere else, cause it usually gets ridiculously crowded on the weekends late night. Also, they are cash only... Lame!

    Where else in the heart of Pac Heights will you find a pub that also serves free cheese and crackers? What more could you possibly ask for?! After a few too many greyhounds you know you'll be craving a snack- well you're in luck since the cheese platter is just to your left!

    CASH ONLY. They're known for their fresh fruit drinks (e.g. Greyhound: vodka and grapefruit) and free cheese platter. Has an attractive crowd that skews preppy.

    Fresh squeezed grapefruits = Greyhounds

    Try the watermelon vodka. It's so good :)
