The trivia was fun. The food service was not good. The chips were good but the fish was soggy and not hot. We waited a long time for the food to come out.

Great place to go with a small group of friends. Good food, great service and the taps change frequently.

Good selection of English beers. Great atmosphere.

I love this place for great beers on tap and atmosphere. Since Covid their menu is very small and too often the smokers outside generate too much smoke which drifts inside, but on the whole a good place for a pint !

I have read other reviews, and am wondering if one needs to be drunk to enjoy the food. I'm also wondering if we were overcharged.... First off, the good. The decor was very British. Now then, the food. The Scotch Egg was decent, but extremely dry. We shared an order of fish and chips. The fish was not fried correctly....the batter was falling off, and extremely oily. My babe's fish was cold in the middle. As we were LITERALLY the only visible customers, there is no excuse for fish and chips to be so poorly cooked in a "British Pub." Lastly, the mini Shepherd's pie. It was dry...until I noticed gravy....on the side??? Really? I've eaten numerous "pies" in Scotland, and this was a first. So fish and chips, one scotch egg, and one mini Shepherd's pie, at happy hour prices....was $28??? Seriously??? Would not recommend at all. There are much better sources of pub food in the Sacramento area

Great place for a pint. Black and tan, or cider, or a traditional English, or German

I've supported Bonn Lair through covid and was looking forward to spending even more time here once things were more normal. Today I stopped by this afternoon and there were a dozen maskless people all hanging out inside, watching a soccer game on the big screen by the bar. It was impossible to place an order without standing right next to them.Great job supporting that 4th wave, Bonn Lair. You've lost a customer in the bargain.

I've been coming to this bar pretty regularly for almost a year now and I love it so much. It was my first date with my boyfriend, plus the first place I ventured out to after the initial coronavirus shutdown, so it definitely holds a special place in my heart. The food is exactly what it should be for a pub, and it's damn good! The Scotch egg and pasties are the bomb, and the beer selection is awesome. Lots of Belgian and dark beers as well, which is a nice break from the overabundance of IPA's at so many other places. The beertenders are wonderful and they play excellent music! 80's goth? Two tone ska?! YES please. Alright, I gotta go, because I'm here right now sitting in my favorite corner, I've got a Scotch egg and Einstock White Ale to finish, and "Let's Dance" by David Bowie to groove to.

Bonn Lair is one of my preferred spots in Sac. As someone who grew up and spent most of my life in Philadelphia, the pretzel I got here tops anything I’ve ever had. It was delicious. Great beer choices and environment!

one of the best pubs in the US, good mix of European staples and local craft beer. always got rugby or soccer on. also love that nearly every time i walk in they're playing The Animals.

This place always delivers. They have great dishes for reasonable prices, there is no waiting time even when they are busy.
