Had an evening meal here while visiting Lexington some months back and this review is based on notes taken then and just written up.

Although this place attempts to capture the British Pub feel it generally falls short in that it's a wide open space with lots of tables and booths and virtually no places devoted to just conversation with friends and reflection, just like most other US based chain restaurants. So the physical décor (e.g., the bar, the stools, etc.) may be authentic but the atmosphere does not really capture the Pub feel. And certainly having servers in an imitation kilt uniform doesn't help.

Service was fine and the Bangers and Mash were also fine, but the three of us agreed that the food wasn't so good as to bring us back.

Naturally the list of beers was UK centric, both in bottle and on tap, but most of it was the obvious choices. About the only one on tap that interested me that day was the Brew Dog Hardcore IPA, which I tried and enjoyed and which I suspect is better on tap than from the bottle.

The Pub sits among the new expansion area of the Fayette Mall in Lexington. The parking lots for all these places are terribly designed.

The Pub has quite a few beers on draught, but they have very few that are out of the ordinary. They have a couple on nitro and mostly focus on stuff from England and the surrounding area.

The food is supposed to be standard English pub fare, but I've not had anything there that was overly tasty. The fish and chips, for example, is expensive and usually fried a little too long.

The waitstaff tends to not know a lot about the beers, other than the name of what's on draught. They also don't seem to be very attentive to their tables.

The beer prices are quite expensive also - I recently got a pint of Bass during happy hour and it was around $6.25.

Overall, The Pub is an ok place to hang out and watch some soccer, but don't expect great food or a huge selection of beers ... or good prices.
