As others mentioned, a nice British experience. Rather homey, dark, and comfortable. I stopped by with my son before a Butler basketball game. I trid a couple brews - Indian Brown Ale and IPA. IPA was barely carbonated at all - hits british tradition quite well. Indian brown lacked a hop charachter I would expect.

Great service - everyone friendly and quick service on food and drink.

We ordered some food - my son had their mac and cheese which is Kraft (it says so on the menu, int heir defense). I had a pork belly sandwich which was decent. A thai style sanwich - could have used some thai hot sauce.

A nice place in a great area. Good beers of the british style. Decent pub food. Kid friendly.

Visited with my wife on a recent trip to Indianapolis.

Tried the following beers on tap:
Broad Ripple Extra Special Bitter (sample)
Broad Ripple Monon Porter (sample)
Broad Ripple Lawn Mower Pale Ale (sample)
Broad Ripple Halloween Jack Pumpkin Ale (sample)

Also had a great conversation with the patrons and bartender. Beer quality was above average, and our overall experience was very good.

A great location for people watching and great beer from the towns eldest statesman in the craft beer movement. Plenty of outside seating, a cozy yet somewhat small inside in an old time homely beer pub feel circa the nineties. All dark brown old wood work. I would drink and eat here plenty if it was a convenient local place but it is 45 minutes by car. I come here mostly for the yummy cask cooled ESB. With that in mind I would say give my ratings on selection, food and service a once a year average over the last decade and Once a five year period prior to that time kind of rating.

We had lunch. Nice variety on the menu. The waitress was helpful and attentive but, there weren't many customers when we were there. Liked the beer variety. I was able to get a taste of one beer before I decided what I wanted to drink with lunch. Cute decor. I would go back there. It's off the beaten path in Broad Ripple which is nice.
