Pleasant House Pub

(773) 523-7437

2119 S Halsted St

Chicago, IL 60608

This used to be the Pleasant House Bakery, but it has a new name and a new location. It’s now full-service, and we’re glad to say the flaky British pies (with options like steak and ale, or cold pork) are still on the menu, in addition to an expanded offering of other pub food, like scotch eggs and fish and chips. The bright space is ideal for a casual lunch or weeknight dinner. And if you came here expecting British pies to be sweet, go home and read more Harry Potter.

Steak and Ale Pie

During a recent 40 degree day, we decided to order food from Pleasant House, a British pub in Bridgeport. We got a steak and ale pie - a.k.a. a “royal pie” - which is what they’re known for. And despite the 20-minute car ride home, the pie’s beef stew filling stayed hot, and the pastry flaky, with no soggy bottom in sight. We also learned that a scotch egg travels better than it has any right to. The bread crumb coating was crispy and the medium egg was still perfect by the time we cut into it.

Pair with: What We Do In The Shadows

This movie is a perfect choice if you (or someone you’re with) wants something campy and spooky, but not actually scary. This fantastic mockumentary about vampires living in a flat together is truly hilarious. It takes place in New Zealand, and I think it’s best paired with one of the “royal” pies (a.k.a. those savory ones you see on Great British Bake-Off) from Pleasant House Pub. Cover the windows with dark, heavy velvet, set out your finest candelabra, fire up the victrola, and sit down to a curry-filled pastry.

Watch the trailer.

The entire menu is available for delivery or carryout, and all of their savory pies are also available for take-and-bake.
