English pub atmosphere with a variety of local, national and import beers on tap and in bottles. Mainly meat items on the menu in keeping with the UK theme.

Went there for lunch after a visit to UNCC. As the name suggests, the list of draft beers is incredible. Everything from a stout to cider. The food menu was typical for a place like this, with Burgers, sandwiches, pizza and also Bratwurst with Sauerkraut and Potato Salad. I had the Pastrami Reuben with Jalapeño Slaw, which was excellent. We... More

I have been in a few of these - this one had a great atmosphere on a Thursday night. Full of a young crowd. The service was excellent. We had the fish and chips special - it was perfect. Beer battered fish fried crispy with plenty of shoestring hand cut fries. Beer was cold with an excellent selection.

Dan would like to offer up a 4-star. The beer selection was good, a mix between recognizable and regional brews. Lots of tv's for game nights. I only went with the grilled cheese and tomato soup (it was a chilly night and a long work day) and Dan had the chicken sandwich. Both were good and plenty hearty. We are... More

One of my must stop locations when I am anywhere near North Charlotte or Concord area. Excellent service and the craft beer selections are one of the best in the area. Absolutely love the homemade pretzel appetizer. When I get a salad to go with it, I don't feel as bad. Salad selection is really good too.

I have spent many times over the years, drinking all the delicious beers that are offered here. Its always a nice vibe whether I am with friends or by myself. There is good music, experienced wait staff, decent food, there is not much more that a girl could ask for. I strongly suggest, no matter where you are, try out... More

The food and great, and they have like 300 beers on tap, which is nice. But I have to tell you my favorite thing is the pretzels! They are big and soft traditional style pretzels with a butter coating and sprinkled with salt. I get them with a side of queso, they go great with a beer, btw.
