I was yearning some English grub so where better than an Irish pub?! Anyway, the waiter was really friendly and the food was excellent. I had the Shepherds Pie (The waiter already knew it should be called Cottage Pie as it was made with beef rather than lamb), and we had a lamb chop starter. Both were delicious. The Philly Steak sandwich was also excellent. I was surprised when we got the bill as it seemed so cheap for the amount of food and accompanying drinks. Highly recommend this place.

Best place to watch Manchester United Soccer games. I repeat it. Undoubtedly one of the most favorite place in Philly. The beers are not expensive, great staff and electric atmosphere when you are there at game time. Made some really good friends there and would love to watch all the games this season at Black Sheep Pub. 🔴GGMU

Cool spot with a large variety of drinks. Happy hour lasts longer than most places in the area and the food i tried was above par without being pretentious. I'll definitely go back
