Big Ben Pub

Absolutely wonderful experience! We sat at the bar and were IMMEDIATELY greeted and welcomed with offers of drinks and menus. The bartender was personable and kind and thoroughly enjoyable. The food was exactly what wed been looking for as well. They dont just say pub for fun. They live up to it. This was our first date night without children in months and this place was a great choice! We would definitely return during another visit to Queen City. Thank you Big Ben. Youre doing it right.
This pub is a charming place, with authentic food and drinks. I went here with a friend who lived in London for two years, and she was surprised to discover items on their menu that she hadnt seen since returning to the US. If youre looking for hearty comfort food, this is a great place to go. If youre looking for good deals on drinks, or drinks you havent been able to find in the states, this might also be a good place for you to try. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and there are sports (often soccer/football) displayed on a couple of screens set up around the bar. The only serious inaccuracy, according to my friend, was the height of the ceilings, which climbed probably 20+ feed in the air. In England, the ceilings of pubs tend to be very low and cozy, so this detracted from the traditional feeling. They do try to make things feel more enclosed by hanging light strands and decorations at a more standard height, but theres no escaping the airy, vacuous sensation hanging around.

Food was pretty good, service was okay. Door wouldn't shut all the way when people were entering and leaving and it was getting cold. Food and drinks took a long time to arrive. Person with me got a much smaller piece on the fish and chips than the rest of us but they corrected it. Ambience is nice.
Great British restaurant. Great staff. Right on the light rail line.
Nice atmosphere. Very dirty glasses. My husband got a sample and there was ketchup inside the rim of the glass. Bartender poured me a glass and snatched it from me and said JESUS CHRIST! Im guessing because there was something in that glass too. Food looked good but we didnt eat. Just grabbed a drink after visiting another store. I would like to try this place again but I feel bad that their dishes arent getting cleaned well enough.
