The Victoria Freehouse

It takes nearly three months, Zagat reports, for cask ale to travel from Great Britain to The Victoria Freehouse. But it's worth the wait for owner Edward Strojan. The casks add an extra touch of authenticity to his bar, which stocks an eclectic assembly of imported and local libations that, per Zagat, "avoids the obvious." Craft brews on draught—which can be served in 20-ounce "imperial" pints—share space with meads, ciders, ginger beers, and single-malt scotch.

British tipples pair well with Edward's pub food, which includes classic dishes such as shepherd's pie and Welsh rarebit with ale sauce. For sweet teeth, Edward serves tarts and puddings rich with ingredients such as the cinnamon, sultanas, and everything nice. Feasts unfold in a dark interior with wooden barstools, reclaimed church pews, and antiques such as a late-19th century bust of Queen Victoria from the Monarch's Jubilee.
