Final stop on a recent trip to Grand Rapids with nicktbm and our better halves.

Atmosphere: classic and pristine British pub, long wooden bar, numerous comfy booths, tap handles loom over the restaurant area, chalkboard shows all draught and cask offerings, hilarious posters in the washrooms, table-side lamps add a unique touch.

Service: staff seemed a bit withdrawn on this lazy Sunday afternoon but our waitress did a commendable job of describing the beers and everything arrived in reasonable time. She also gave us plenty of privacy in between drinks.

Selection: had an Arcadia Whitsun Wheat Ale with Hibiscus on cask and a North Peak Diabolical IPA out of the bottle. Both beers were in top form and my girlfriend enjoyed her pint of Delirium Tremens. Other standouts were Avery 18th Anniversary Ale, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Ommegang Belgian Saison, and Lagunitas IPA on tap. Very well-rounded menu.

Food: remarkable fare that exceeded our expectations. Ordered the House Salad, Chicken Tikka Masala, Bangalore Quesadilla, and Mackinaw Island Fudge, all of which were phenomenal. Each dish had an immaculate presentation and the free papadum was a nice surprise. They really nail the "England meets India" theme.

Overall: Graydon's is an archetype British pub that I will gladly revisit on future trips to the city. The attention to detail - from the pairing suggestions to the food descriptions to the style classifications on the beer list - is second to none. I highly recommend this bar.
