“Decent food - noisy atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The Pub is a well named faux-British eating establishment in the Polaris shopping area in North Columbus. It is, predictably, a noisy atmosphere and it was difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was good but screamed pre-prepared. I got Shepherd's Pie (what else in such a place?) and it was ok but lacked that crispy browned topping I've come to expect. The ground meats at the bottom (beef and lamb) were nicely done and very tasty but the mashed spuds were a bit starchy and dry.

“Love it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a great place for food and drinks. They have a wide variety of martinis--strawberry, apple, and pineapple, which was my favorite. I have sampled most of the appetizers, which are all very good. I especially liked the fried pickles. I have also had the chicken pot pie, which was so so good. It looks like a bunch of mush, but don't let that fool you.
In the summer that patio is a great place to relax and all of the flowers are beautiful. If you have to be inside, it does tend to get very crowded.

“Excellent Food, Unique Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The atmosphere can get crazy with so many peope inside one place. The service was great. Food was excellent. I had the chicken pot pie and it was perfect. I would reccomend that you make reservations because this is a very popular place. Happy hour is good too.

“Awesome pub food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012 via mobile

I love pub food so I wanted to check this out! The fish sandwich was one ofthe he's I have had in Columbus! I also tried the rueben. It was good, but not my favorite rueben. The atmosphere was great with some decent live tunes. Also had soccer on all the tv's which is a plus! Service was great and very friendly!
