Overall, I enjoyed my time here, though that was driven more by the food than by the beer. They had a fairly wide tap list, focusing primarily on stuff from the UK along with a handful of craft taps, but most of the stuff is very common. Great service, but nothing that particularly excited me on the beer front. I did get a couple that I hadnít had before, but nothing that I was overtly seeking. Cool place, lots of dark wood and a great pub vibe. Just not a great beer destination.

Great ambiance. Mediocre beer list - first time in Cinci and there was nothing new for me... Service questionable. Prices a bit steep. Beer had diacetyl in it.

Nice Scottish themed restaurant. Full bar with lots of scotch and whiskey. The food is top notch and the beer selection is very nice with some ethnically appropriate beers to choose from . Worth the stop if you are looking for a nice restaurant downtown.

Nicholsonís has a good draft beer list and GREAT food. Do yourself a favor and get the fish and chips. Best in the city!

Very cool local spot in the city. This place has been a great permanent fixture that we hope will always have there doors open. Great Irish food.

(Visited 07/2011): Nicholsonís Tavern & Pub is located in the heard of downtown Cincinnati on Walnut between 6th and 7th. Street parking is the best bet in the surrounding area. The inside features a lot of dark wood with the bar area in the center and table seating elsewhere. Lots of windows looking out to the street. The bar itself features around 20 taps, primarily from the UK. Brands like Boddingtonís, Fullerís, Harp, Belhaven, Youngís and the like are the focus. There are a few domestic options from Goose Island and Kentucky Brewing for example. As for bottles there are maybe 40, again the focus being on UK brews like Brew Dog and Samuel Smithís. Domestic craft brewers like 21st Amendment and Dogfish Head are also options. Of course they do the whole layered thing too. In addition they have sample paddles. Service at Nicholsonís is pretty good. Not everyone working here is going to be a beer expert but it should not be expected. We did not try any food on our visit. Overall this is a good spot to grab a beer and perhaps some fish & chips in downtown Cincy.

Awesome. They have a solid menu, a great selection of beers, and an amazing scotch list. A must try for any fan of the drink.

Nicholsonís Tavern and Pub is a large, classy UK-themed pub. The crowd here on a Monday was more on the yuppie side. The tap list is quite solid with mostly token UK beers but a few surprises like Bells Kalamazoo on cask, a rotating offering from Brewdog, and a few other craft offerings. The service was excellent. The food was interesting. Our spinach & artichoke dip appetizer was arguably the best of its kind Iíve ever had. The fish & chips was arguably the worst Iíve ever had at a restaurant such as this. The "chips" were precut steak fries like one might get in the frozen food aisle at the grocery store. The fish were densely breaded with a very crunchy and thick covering. Perhaps other items on the menu are preferable. I had a fantastic time with my beer, though.

While on vacation in Cincy with my wife, I scoped this place out because I heard they had a great selection of imported beers from Europe. I couldnít have been happier with my decision. The place looks as if it is out of what I remember from my trip to England. Dark wood, unique seating, and great service. The food was outstanding. My wife had a burger with pineapple, pancetta, and other ingredients that was amazing and my lobster mac and cheese hit the spot. I was able to get a flight of any beers I wanted, which I donít always get at beer bars, so I was happy. I received a Brewdog Smokehead Imperial Stout, Goose Island Pepe Nero, Kronenberg 1664, and Chimay. I was impressed with the selection and the knowledgeable staff. A great place to visit if you want to experience the joy that life can bring.

Great downtown Cincinnati location for this bar and restaurant, owned by the Tavern Group, which operates a number of English-themed pubs in the region. Nice environment. Very friendly and helpful staff; bartender gave me a couple samples of stuff they were given from traveling reps and may be featuring in the future. 26 taps and 30-ish bottles (but more not listed- ask bartenders if theyíve got anything rotating through the fridges). Mostly English, Irish, Scotch brews and a few American and Belgians, among others. Taps featured four Belhavens, BrewDog (rotating), Chimay, Youngís, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Tennentís, Breckenridge, and more. They always serve in appropriate glassware. The food is hearty, and very good overall.
