London in downtown Minnesota? Yes, at this authentic British pub. Grab a stool by the fireplace in the downstairs oasis or visit the balcony poolroom. If people-watching is your bag, the window tables offer some of the best gazing in town on Nicollet Mall. As soon as the first hint of spring hits, the patio tables offer an even better view. If you are lucky, you might catch a bit of Musicfest being played outdoors at Orchestra Hall across the street. Do not forget to shop for English souvenirs. Lots of paneling, a beautiful old-world bar, and the World Cup on the "telly" make this feel like a bit of London Towne. The menu features a fine selection of British ales and lagers, burgers, sandwiches and, of course, fish and chips. There is free parking in the ramp next door, on 11th Street; look for the British flags.
We've dined at Brit's several times and always enjoyed the experience. Every menu item we have tried has been prepared to taste like it was being served in the UK, although Brit's is not run like a pub. It's more of a sitdown and order restaurant. The pricing reflects this as well, with the food being more than you would expect to pay for 'pub grub'. However, it is good stuff and the draft ales are excellent.
The bar gets a lot of traffic and is a friendly place to have a pint.
