I've been here for a drink, meals and to see shows in the "theatre" room upstairs and I don't like anything about this place. It's dirty, uncomfortable and has an odd smell (especially upstairs). I don't like the food or think the menu/ bar offering is anything special. I know many people love the place and think it's an authentic... More

This doesn’t look much from the outside, but the food and beer are really good. We chanced upon this as it was just around the corner from our hotel. We initially just intended to have a beer, but saw the food and stayed. We had great service from a very friendly young couple. Recommended.

We were a little lost but looking for a lunch spot during our visit to historic Philadelphia. It was an out of the way spot so not too busy. The prices were very and the food was excellent. By the time we finished lunch the pace was packed. The daily specials were great.

I always enjoy going to Fergies, They have food for tasty food for vegetarians, great beers, and the atmosphere, and the place make me feel comfortable. Good value for a nice pub.

We'd been to Fergie's several times on crowded Saturday afternoons - love the music. Most recently visiting for a real late lunch it was a bit different. The food was pretty standard pub fare. Fries were great, however. Lots of beer options. Service was excellent.

Just a normal Irish bar but has a decent selection of beers and to my surprise the shepherd's pie and veg was a really good dish at a good price.

Great service, live band karaoke and decent food!! Picture on the wall in the bar seems to stare at you... a bit creepy but I guess that is the point.

While walking down Sansom St we followed a small group into Fergie's looking for a good pint. The entrance area was under construction so it did not look particularly welcoming until we stepped inside. It was Saturday at around 4 o'clock and they had traditional live Irish musicians, just sitting and playing around one of the tables in the bar,... More

We slid in here for a cold one but didn't spend much time. The bartender was very friendly and the inside of the place was very clean and cozy.
