The Bombardier, a real English pub serving real English ale, brings British pub culture to the heart of Paris. Even the tables on the terrace resemble pub-garden-style picnic benches rather than the more traditional pavement café variety. They boast a view out onto the dome of the Panthéon; guests are almost in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral. The beer is reasonably priced, pub-grub is served from mid-day to 2.30p, and there's a choice of three TVs showing the best of British sports. The Bombardier is a good place to watch a crunch match or simply sit with a pint and read an English newspaper.
