The Pub at the Greene has long been on our radar, and I had the opportunity to visit during the first day of Lent. We recommend entering the Greene and turning west at the main cross roads and enter The Pub at the Greene’ parking lot. Arrival time was about 4:20, and as a first visit, the general ambience is attractive, inviting, and a thoughtful blending of a British or Irish pubs. Very often, this is not the case with Dayton area and U.S. British style pubs.
The open architecture centers on a large, attractive, circular bar, which is very busy. There are several seating areas including satellite bars, booths, tables, and the large enclosed, heated patio. There are several large screen TV’s broadcasting a soccer game. The TVs attracted a college age audience, who knew something about soccer.
Several middle aged couples were enjoying happy hour, and I migrated from the bar to a booth, and finally to the sun drenched, enclosed, heated patio.
There is a great selection of draughts and single malt scotches. The menu included burgers, scotch eggs, crab cakes, fish and chips, Shepherd’s Pie, salmon, pot roast, various salads, soups, and sandwiches. In short the menu offers a nice meal for $10.00 - $12.00.
With good fortune, Jessica (aka: JJ) was my server, and because The Pub at the Greene was not overly busy, I explained to Jessica that we have been to Britain and Ireland at least a dozen times, and I inquired about several of the offerings. Jessica is extremely familiar with the fare, and was able to analyze various customers’ reactions. Jessica recommended Fish and Chips. I guessed frozen beer battered haddock, and Jessica confirmed my guess. The actual serving of fish and chips is huge, and probably as good as fish and chips in the British Isles or Ireland.
While enjoying a Guinness, I talked with General Manager, Logan Hooper. Logan is an impressive young entrepreneur, who clearly comprehends how to provide a neat environment that is certain to attract a variety of demographics.
Around 5:00PM The Pub at the Greene began to fill with professionals dressed in suits or sports jackets, and the ladies are professionally dressed.
The Pub at the Greene seems to offer an inviting after work meeting place, and the clientele were in good spirits. I observed that most of the professions were having a draught or single malt, and that many were enjoying the appetizers and/or placing a dinner order.
In my view, The Pub at the Greene offers a nearly authentic Irish or British experience. The fare is great, and the service is superior. The tariff is appropriate for the fare.
