The beer selection was excellent, but the beers were a little overpriced. Call it the ambience price. The restaurant features some well-known British ales, as well as some lesser known British ales. They also have an excellent U.S. micro-brew selection.
The atmosphere is very British and there are pictures of the royal family on the walls. I enjoyed the atmosphere. If only my wife's steak had been fork-cutting tender. . .

I selected the meal I usually select: fish and chips. As usual my entree was very good. Not only is the food good but also the service is friendly and efficient. There were not a lot of diners the time we picked, but the waitress was very attentive. In addition, even though not all tables were going to be used, we were allowed to pick out the table we wanted. So we didn't get stuck with a table in a high traffic area.
You can choose to eat outside, but no one chose that area during that evening because it was so hot outside.
Cost of dinner for two (including beers, tax and tip) was $80.
We also returned another evening but stayed in the pub area - aka Mr. Pickwicks Pub. The bartender was great and somehow he had the three groups of strangers talking to each other. I enjoyed listening to the one customer who lived in England but was in the U.S. for vacation. His job was taking the first trial run on amusement parks! He was very interesting.
I also ordered a special beer that I liked that tasted like a strawberry champagne. The bartender went down to the basement to get my first bottle. After I ordered, others followed suit and since no one else there had sampled that beer before, there was quite a discussion about the beer! I think the bartender made quite a few trips to the basement that evening. He did tell us that he had never sold that many bottles in one evening!
The only down side of the evening is that we had to go home!
