I have been here many, many times. They used to have a have a decent craft beer selection and so-so food. They still have so-so food, but the beer selection is getting more and more dominated by the conglomerate behind Budweiser. Moreover there is no innovation in the “independents”. The service is typically pretty bad, with main dish being ready before I am half-done with the appetizer (more than once).

I love this pub. The food is always good and as I say....comforting. shepards pie, meatloaf for example. This place is like a giant comfortable sofa just inviting you to come in and relax. I love the vibe.

Walked in because it looked interesting. Sat at the bar and ordered a beer. Nice place with numerous tv’s. Decent beer selection. Typical English pub bar menu. I had a Newcastle and a Reuben sandwich. The Reuben came with a side of some really good fries. It was very flavorful and had a decent amount of corned beef. It was a little greasy but it was good. Nice place in the loop, worth visiting.

Sat at bar for dinner Monday night and place was 1/4 full. Bartender was ok and not very social and after 4 requests to change channel to Cubs game, I gave up. Never changed. Ordered jerk chicken sandwich and it was ok, average. So average place

Range of beers wines and spirits as well as snacks and meals. Worth trying. Sports on tv, including soccer when there’s a major completion on.
