Where do they get the lettuce for their "Caesar salad"? The dumpster behind Souplantation? This is really bad. The burger was some kind of mystery meat. The avocado was dark brown on the side that was turned down. Even the draught beer tasted stale. But, you know, it's airport food, so what can you expect? Just be thankful you lived... More

I was mostly impressed with the prompt service as the food, a crab cake, was so-so--the slaw was OK. I sat at the bar and also enjoyed several beers which made my layover more pleasant. Prices seemed better than average for airport fare.

This is NOT pub food. It's pub atmosphere but the food is reheated and served cold. The hot cocoa was the only thing hot. Ugh!

I ordered a bowl of the clam chowder soup at this place and the appearance seemed OK, but upon tasting the "soup" it was white water without any flavor. If there was a clam in there, I would have been shocked. There were some numbs they called potatoes, but the whole dish was without any flavor - i.e. white colored... More

I had one of the most miserable airport dining experiences at this restaurant in the Dulles airport on Friday, 4/4/14. Listed under "Fine Fare" on the Specials section of the menu, I ordered the Firkin Fish Wrap described as "Crispy Beer-Battered Fish in a wrap stuffed with Lettuce, Avocado and Chipotle Mayo. Served with a Caesar Salad!" for $11.99 The... More

Surprisingly, this place was very good for being in an airport where quality and service are typically poor. The place was packed but the service was very brisk and friendly and the portions were huge and tasty. Lots of typical English food choices. We were impressed with the overall operation.

Service was as good as you could ever expect in an airport bar/restaurant. Food was perfectly fine and promptly delivered. Only downfall? Worst Bloody Mary I've ever had! Overall a comfortable place to pass the time between flights, though.

This small restaurant in the Dulles Airport was a surprisingly fantastic find. I was hungry and waiting for my next flight. The place was packed and I had to wait for a table. I did not want to take a risk on anything but the basics although the menu offered many options for an airport food option. I had the... More
