My wife and I visited here one night while we were on a mini work vacation in Bellingham. I'm a beer/pub kind of guy and anytime you have to walk down an unassuming set of stairs on the sidewalk leading to an area below street level, it's generally going to be a good place. This is one of them. It has a great atmosphere and really feels like you walked into a British pub, minus the junk music they had playing there (I don't want to go to a pub and listen to mainstream pop - their major downfall here).
They had quite a few selections of beer on tap while we were there, but nothing out of the ordinary. We did eat while we were there and the food was actually very good for this kind of establishment. I had bangers and mash which were decent, and my wife had an ale steamed mussesl dish which was very good. Their service in general is slow here, but the staff is outgoing and very friendly.
Don't go here expecting the best food in the world, and be ready to fork over some money. While this is a really great place to go, and I would certainly come back in a heartbeat, the prices here are the only downfall. You can walk up the street and get some of the same beers for cheaper. All-in-all I recommend this place if you need a good beer.
