Located in a strip mall as you enter Barboursville on Rt. 60. Atmosphere is sterile. Much of the decor looks incredibly forced and there is a strange mixture of paraphernalia from all over the UK. It definitely didn’t strike me as a British pub. It looks more like an Applebees trying to peddle generic cultural items from the UK. The service is just as sterile as the decor. I arrived on a Thursday evening with nobody to greet me at the door to seat my party. I had to wait for a server to tell us that we could sit where we would like. After that, we probably saw our server a handful of times. She seemed incredibly distracted and not interested in us. I don’t think she checked on us once. It would be nice if she would have considering our table had no salt or pepper and that we were only able to get one round of beers. The beer selection is slightly above average for a restaurant here. Yes, there are 30 taps, but much of it is generic craft (Magic Hat, Rogue, Harpoon fruit wheats, etc) and "crafty" brands (Shocktop, Blue Moon, etc). There were probably 3 beers out of the 30 that I was even remotely interested in. Also, no craft bottles to choose from, which baffles me. Now to the food. Boy was this rough. If you thought the beer selection was confusing, just wait until you see the menu. What kind of British pub has 8 types of burgers, a reuben, and monte cristo? There’s more American food than there is British or Scottish food. I was so dumbfounded that a burger was available that I actually ordered one. That was a mistake. I don’t remember what it was called, but it was topped with bleu cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Bland doesn’t even begin to describe it. It wasn’t seasoned and the bun was actually toasted to the point that it was actually rock hard. That’s not to mention that the burger itself was overcooked. I asked for medium and received well-done. My girlfriend ordered the Guinness stew, which was an atrocity. There was hardly in liquid and it wasn’t seasoned. Additionally, the bread that came with her strew was stale. Since how server was so distracted we weren’t even able to track down some salt to try and improve the food. Despite the bad experience, the prices were actually cheap. Actually, they’re probably too cheap. My 20 oz pint of Blue Mountain Full Nelson was only $2.25 at happy hour. How on earth are they making money on that? I’m not gonna complain though. That’s pretty damn cheap. Overall, I seriously doubt I will be back. Beer selection was pretty mediocre and practically every phase of the experience was pretty bad.

Plenty of parking in a strip mall complex near a KMart right off of US 60. The place has a big bar on the left with thirty taps. Fair amount of tables on the right and in the back. Atmosphere was contemporary United Kingdom theme. The waitress didn’t have a clue about beer, in fact I was brought Weihenstephaner Original instead of the hefe, no compensation. The beer menu misspelled Weihenstephaner and listed the hefe was on draft when it wasn’t. The online beer menu had not been updated in a long time. I had the fish and chips and the fish was good, but the chips were just average. Some of the food was a little over priced, some was going rate. The beer was reasonably priced, but some of the taps were BMC. My wife, mother-in-law, and mother seemed to enjoy the place so we may be back.
