About Robin Hood British Pub (Survey Slam)

Authentically British from the “draught” beers to the darts (not machines, but real darts and dartboards), to the homemade pink-and-yellow-checkered, marzipan-wrapped Battenburg cake that accompanies afternoon tea, Robin Hood British Pub has been a Valley home-away-from-home for relocated Brits for nearly 30 years. It has also been a faithful stand-in as a mini-visit to London for local Anglophiles craving homemade chicken curry pie or true fish ‘n chips.

Londoners Michael and Lorraine Williams began Robin Hood 30 years ago when they bought a run-down beer bar in Sherman Oaks and converted it into a casual place for brews and burgers. After a few years, they added British comfort foods to the menu and began making their own tartar sauce (it’s been getting rave reviews ever since) to accompany the house favorite, fish ‘n chips. Michael, a former pub professional in England, brought in classic draft British beers. An appreciative clientele took root and has been evolving ever since; newcomers and regulars, British and American, unite at Robin Hood in their love of good British food, drink, and camaraderie.

Another great week, another great night of Survey Slam at Robin Hood Pub! This week two teams squared off for survey supremacy in a game that covered everything from Adam Sandler movies to bagel options.

An early lead was established and held by The Cloyne Hottubbers (mispronounced by this Survey Czar throughout the entire game, a realization which only came right now in this moment as he is writing this review).

Last night's game saw a rare unanimously-successful wager round 5 which asked "which Fruit Ninja Fruit would you most like to slash with a katana?" It's moments like these folks like myself straight up live for and make Survey Slam such a blast!

The holidays are over, the New Year has been rung in, and Survey Slam is BACK, baby!!!!

What started as a two-team battle quickly became a THREE team battle, when solo-player Flip My Wilson entered the fray. Wilson quickly established dominance -- though throughout the game no placing was every fully secure. Seven rounds and one unanimously-flunked wager rounds later came ROUND 8!

And we entered the final round with a tie for first between Some Devil and Flip My Wilson, with My Dumb Roommate (who, fun fact, is my ACTUAL very smart roommate) only three points behind.

Unfortunately, all three teams again lost their wages -- which happened to all be 10 points.

SO, we found ourselves back at square one. And with that came what Quizmasters and Survey Czars alike live for -- THE TIE BREAKER!

The question, deceptively simple -- we asked our survey takers to name a skateboard trick, what percentage said kickflip. The answer...


The first place and $20 gift certificate to Robin Hood Pub?

SOME DEVIL!! Their first first place win, and well deserved. Congratulations to Flip My Wilson and My Dumb Roommate the latter of whom will get a very stern talking to about his performance tonight.

See everyone next week!

Christmas is two weeks away, but it came early for two talented teams at last night's Survey Slam.

Contestants answered survey topics ranging from least threatening baseball teams to non-hamburger based food chains and more.

After seven rounds of intense Survey Slamming, the swing between first and third place was three points -- it was anybody's game. But after successful 10 point wagers from LA 2 VA and Some Devil and an unsuccessful 1 pointer from This Mic Smells, we had our victors.

I've said it once and I'll say it again; wager wisely, but also live dangerously -- it'll pay off!

Thanks to all who played, and see everyone next time!
