Real British Pub in the back of Shibuya Center Street
Shibuya Center Street is the Japanese most famous hip area.
In such a street, The ALDGATE that is seasoned British Pub seems out of place.
There are many restaurant such as McDonald, Tapioca milk tea shop with long line, thick noodle shop Tenka-Ippin and so on.
After pass by them, you see Union Jack that as a shop sign.
Atmosphere of a pub in London
The ALDGATE is on the 3rd floor of the building.
I opend a heavy glass door and step into the dim light.
In the woody mood, There are a counter onthe right, stand table onth left and 5 tables in the back.
a Foreign male and a female in the counter speak both of japanese and english.
To order beers, we can choose it from menu and recommended beer on the black board beside of casher.

Craft beer for daily drinking
This time, at first I tried JACK THE RIPPER because I love IPA and the word of “limited”.
It has bitterness of citrus and organized taste. Enerybody who loves Craft beer must like this one.
Next, I drank “BLACK ISLE Scott ale” in expectation of getting drank easily because of this strong stuff.
Against its deep brown color, it smells not so roasted.
Of course, Craft beer and fish and chips are atractions of THE ALDGATE, but greatest charm is that there are many records of the british rock, and they respond to the request for music.
If you wanto to go into the ambiance of London, THE ALDGATE is most suitable Brisith Pub in Shibuya.
