Oddly enough, Limaâ€™s most authentic English pub, The Old Pub, is in Limaâ€™s â€śLittle Italy,â€ť or as some call it, â€śPizza Street,â€ť Calle San RamĂłn, a short road near Parque Kennedy. But donâ€™t let a whiff of Italy deter you; after all, itâ€™s an English pub, owned by a proper Britâ€”and itâ€™s in Peruâ€”so youâ€™ve probably come searching for that refreshing taste of home and comfort. Quickly upon entering, you know itâ€™s the real deal with the large display of beers on tap, the colorful mosaic of old drink coasters pinned to the wall, and of course, the dart board. The super friendly crowd (not surprisingly, many ex-pats and travelers) and the nostalgic environs will fill you with a sense of place and some jolly good cheer. Sadly, you wonâ€™t be able to satisfy those hunger pangs with a plate of old fashioned English fish and chipsâ€”the pub doesnâ€™t serve food. Open Sunday-Friday from 4 p.m., Saturday from noon.
