An almost unlimited selection of beer, great atmosphere & staff. Cheeseburgers are outstanding & how often does your waiter wear a kilt and speak with a beautiful English accent?

Yes, this is a place you can bring your kids. (I wondered this before I entered the restaurant.) What a treat! Their food is authentic English food. Our waiter even had an English accent, kilt and all! My husband, myself, and our girls had their burgers. My husband liked their beer cheese. Our son had calamari, and loved it, with... More

Servers in kilts, loud music and plenty of drinking, just the kind of place for a night out with friends! They have a great variety of beer here, you will pay a higher price for a pint, too. Some unique pub fare here, fries with curry dipping sauce, scotch egg and Jamaican shrimp, all good!

It's a beautiful building, design, decor, color and has half decent bar food and beer selection. It's just twice what I would pay for elsewhere. I assume it' the location, you can't find a better place to meet people, it's the hub of the hub of Lexington. Visited twice, and done.

I was excited to eat at the Pub and to try British style food, but I just wasn't that impressed. I thought the prices were very high, bloody mary was WAY too spicy than any I've ever tried before and the rueben was just average. Also, service was slow and weird---we ate with my mom and she ordered a lemonade... More

Typically good food. This was a Tuesday night. Was that to blame? Roast beef stew-all fat and slimy. Kids fish was raw and uncooked. Manager came out and agreed but said it was only third time that has ever happened. Glad to hear it! Be a long time before we come back.

We celebrated New Year's Eve at The Pub. We both had the fish and chips and shared a whiskey bread pudding - both we're great.

We tried the shepherd's pie, buttered fish sandwich,and burger. Everything was good. The menu was varied and full of english favorites. There was a huge wine and beer and cocktail selection. Our only criticism was the long waits. We were there at lunch and there were perhaps 4 other tables filled. Our lunch guest who lives in town warned us... More

Although I'm not much of a beer drinker (I prefer wine), the selection is staggering here. The wait staff dresses like you would expect to see in Ireland, England and Scotland...the men are secure enough to wear kilts! The menu offers authentic traditional English fare (shepherd's pie, fish and chips, bangers & mash) as well as a few American pub... More
