Straddles the line between Peabody and Danvers, an area I only go to when doing weekend shopping. There's a target and a warehouse store and a mall very close by, along with all the stripmall fast food accompaniment you would expect in such an area. Aside from the bar n' grills in the malls, this is the only place nearby that serves booze.

The decor is that of a faux British pub: lots of glit wood, old-looking gimcracks, soccer on the TV instead of college football. It's medium fancy but still welcoming. There are TVs, and people watch them, but it doesn't have the vibe of a loud sportsbar. It also doesn't have the vibe of a beer bar, though. It's a faux British pub.

The beer menu features about a halfdozen British drafts (mostly from Fullers), another dozen craft taps from local and nationally available brewers, and then another halfdozen or so from Inbev MillerCoors. The beer list on their website gives a pretty decent description of what they got, but it's not updated very regularly.

The food is tasty. The traditional British items (fish & chips, steak and ale pie, shepherd's pie) are all great, but so are the weird limey-yank fusion options like the nachos. Very hearty, very tasty, and pretty darn affordable.

I've stopped here a couple of times but never thought to review it because it never struck me as the sort of destination beer people would seek out. This is a great place to stop in the middle of a shopping jag, though.

Busy place, but worth the wait... Lots of brews to choose from.
