Traditional pub atmosphere. Excellent food but service can be spotty. Fair selection of drafts and an excellent selection of bottles.

Great place! English bar setting with very good (not as good as Saucer) selection. I had a Goudenband and a Maredsous 10. Great service.

Nice English pub atmosphere. Selection is reasonable with a few staples on tap and most of the bottles that you would want (if you really just want selection then the Ginger Man is a 2 minute walk - go there to experiment and here if you know what you want.) Seems like a larger selection than the Old Monk and Dubliner (the 3 share the same owner/managers), though it could be my imagination. Food is typical but fairly good quality pub grub. My favorite bar in Dallas because of the atmosphere and the simple fact that it has the best combination of beer and whisk(e)y selection around. (great for groups with mixed tastes between the two)

This place rocks! I try and go every time I’m in the area. Great selection of "near rare" beers. Parking’s a bitch on busy nights, but you can usually find a spot in the neighborhood to the north.

A nice "European" style pub in an otherwise soul-less neighbourhood (beer-wise). Very comfortable inside and the food is great. No surprises in selection, but very well thought out. From the folks who brought you The Old Monk and The Dubliner.

Checked this out on a Tuesday afternoon and it was lively but not at all crowded. Service was prompt, attentive and friendly. Nice atmosphere low light, big bar, lots of seating. Wide selecttion, that does not go very deep but does offer a good variety of countries and basic styles. Nothing rare or cutting edge but I’ll take an Aventinus any day. Food was solid.

Went on a Friday night when it was packed. Pretty nice interior with lots of tables and darts in the back. Bartenders are all very friendly. Beer list is actually unimpressive. Had a few interesting taps but they were out of everything that I wanted to try. DId not get a chance to try the food. Very smokey.

Visited December 2012.

Interesting set up here with a ton of people squeezing into the little outdoor area by the sidewalk. Luckily the bar and the booths are further into the building and weren’t too busy. The kitchen is open late too. I sat at a booth in the back and ordered some weird fried mushrooms and got a beer. The service was friendly but busy with the customers outside. The food was pretty good albeit greasy and strange. The beer selection was good and featured a few Stone and other California-made beers in addition to the regular Texas-made offerings. It gets noisy so be warned in case you aren’t into the popular bar scene.
