Well my wife had to hit the big outlet mall coming back from the Pittsburgh last weekend and this sits right next door.I have to say Iam not really a fan of the "themed" bars this has the feaux English look to it with its Paintings all around the place of things like hounds on a fox hunt and flaggons of adorned with gin,mediera,and ale written on them you get the drift.Place was full of women shoppers and it was pretty loud.Our server was nice enough and he was attentive when he could be alot of the rich milfs around us were keeping him busy.The standard UK type beer selection found at alot of U.S. bars,Boddingtons,Harp,Bass,Guinness,Smithwick,Stella,along with Sam Adams Summer and Lager,and I believe Yuenling so nothing to write home about but a decent selection.Food was very good and portions were large I had a chicken bruschetta sandwich with pesto mayonasse wich was great my wife had the fish sandwich wich she really liked.A bit pricey and the atmosphere bit but the food was good and I didnt have to go far to find it.

The Elephant Castle is a very good place to wine and dine. The food is excellent and the service is just great. The brew selection has something for everyone and includes beers from Flying Dog, Goose Island, Great Lakes, Atwater, Victory, Rogue, Dogfish, Magic Hat and Blue Moon. A very fine dining experience and highly recommended.

Elephant & Castle is a nice place to stop for a brew after shopping at the Grove City Outlets. I stopped in for lunch while my truck was being serviced up the road. Typical decor for a Applebees/Fridays type establishment, i didn't pay much mind but it seemed to be english themed.

The food was allright, i tried the Shepard pie which came with some fresh green beans and a salad, all on the same plate. Fairly priced at 10 bones.

The beer list was much better than i expected. On draft they had Great Lakes Conrad, bass, guiness, bodington, sam adams winter lager, blue moon, stella, smithwicks, and 3 bmc's. In bottles the selection included Erie Railbender, anchor steam, blue moon, harpoon ipa, Penn Brewery beers, sam adams, mackeson xxx stout,, tetley's, fullers esb, new castle, SNPA, and the usual macros.

ONe thing that hasn't been mentioned is that there is a hotel connected to this place. It looks small and probably doesn't have many rooms.

Happy hours are from 10-12 with $1 bottles and $1 of drafts offered. I'm guessing this is to draw from the employees at the outlets leaving work around this time. Personally i've never heard of a happy hour at 10pm, but whatever works.

Service was good as i was the only person at the bar. The bartender photocopied me a beer list when i mentioned that i was gonna review the bar for a beer website.

A place right off the Prime Outlets in Grove City. I have to say the food's quite good, as the few times I've been there I've had wraps, and as you probably know, it's tough to make a great wrap sandwich, but easy to make one that's mediocre.

I mean what kind of atmosphere would you expect for lunch? It's clean and set up nicely, with comfortable booths, a lot of wood for its surroundings, etc. I imagine they wouldn't have the most insane nightlife scene, or even if they're open during crazy hours, but who knows?

On the menu are the usual things: Boddingtons, Guinness, Sam Adams, New Castle. Nothing you can't get at any nearby store (though PA doesn't sell beer in gas stations and the like, which is certainly a drawback to being originally from there), but certainly not all macro normal brews.

Overall it's a good place to stop, have a decent beer and some lunch after shopping. The food has been great each time I've gone, along with the service. Check it out if you're in the area for some shopping.

Stopped for lunch after hitting the outlets. Food was English-Irish themed (e.g., fish & chips, lamb stew, bangers & mash) with Americanized pub fare tossed in. Was a busy Saturday and I think Grove City had had graduation. Service was decent and food was on par. Beer selection is probably the best in Grove City area, but that's not saying much as Grove City (I believe) is still a dry town. If you consider Boddy or Guinness or Yuengling or Sam Adams to be exotic, then go crazy. I just ended up getting an iced tea.

Chain style but still pretty unique very nice long wooden bar, didn't really look at the dining area too closely. Very new looking everything seemed on point lacks a quality selection however, the draft list was Guinness, Boddington's, Bass, Tetley's, Amstel Light, Labatt Blue, Yuengling, Rolling Rock, and Rolling Rock Green Light. Service was decent things were rather slow there so the bartender was on top of things and friendly. Bottle list the only thing worthy of mentioning is Anchor Steam and Erdinger Weiss. I had a bowl of the French Onion very tasty, one of my favorite soups they did a good job with it.
