Finally getting around to reviewing this place, as I have been there a few times in the past. Stopped in yesterday (Easter Sunday) with my wife for a couple pints after brunch.

The place itself is decorated to resemble a London pub, with Premier League matches on the 'telly' and Anglo memorabilia on the wall. On a nice day, the sidewalk patio on Nicollet Mall is lovely. Brits also features a great upstairs outdoor patio area with lawn bowling as well.

The clientele varies depending on the time of the day you visit. Afternoons are mellow, with patrons relaxing enjoying a pint. Weekend evenings turn this place into a clusterfuck, packed and sweaty, almost impossible to get a beer or hear any sort of conversation.

The beers are pretty standard for a British-style tavern. Tetley, Fullers, Old Specked Hen are some of the brews/breweries featured (besides the obligitory Bass, Guinness, Harp, BMC). The only two American 'crafts' available (Colonials as denoted here) are Summit EPA & Goose Island IPA. Expect to pay $6 for an imperial pint.

Did not eat this trip, but have had the old English menu war horses in the past (bangers & mash, fish & chips, shepard's pie, etc). All were decent, but not worth going out of your way for.

Service is good if the place isn't busy, scarce when it is.

Overall, your impression of this establishment will vary depending upon which time of the day you visit. If you want a mellow tavern to relax and have a couple pints, then definitely stop by in the afternoon. If you are looking for that mellow environment in the evening on a weekend, avoid this place like the plague, as it turns into a pickup joint for the frat-boy crowd.

Good example of an American British pub. Good selection of english ales, but the same stuff and you can find anywhere. The food was good pub grub and the atmosphere was good (it was a pretty good crowd on a tuesday night). Wait staff was average. Overall, not bad, but not great either.

In terms of selection, this is the typical British import line-up (which is kind of disappointing, considering they're successful enough to throw in a little something a bit more interesting) and then some locals...good vibe and the lawn bowling in the summer makes it stand out.

It has a decent vibe, a reasonable selection and some nice scotches. Its a good location to rest your feet. The sidewalk tables are nice in the summer.
