Before you even ask, yes, the pub owners are Brits. So you might as well add the word “authentic” to our name. Liverpool native Lea Doyle purchased The Horse & Jockey in August 2008. Before Lea took over the reins at The Horse & Jockey British Pub, he warmed a seat many a time on the other side of the bar. And that’s a perspective you want in a pub owner! The Horse & Jockey British Pub & Restaurant has been on South Pasadena, right in same location, since 1987. We’re a neighborhood pub with many regulars from around the neighborhood and throughout the British expat community.
