A new British-style restaurant and bar opened Thursday at Pointe Orlando on International Drive near the Orange County Convention Center. The Pub offers gastropub fare and an extensive beverage selection including two areas where customers can pour their own beer from taps mounted into the wall and pay by the ounce.

The nearly 8,000-square-foot venue can seat 175 people and is available for buyout. Various sections can be roped off for semiprivate events, including a rear area that has a tap wall and seating for 30, and a front patio that can accommodate up to 40 people for a reception.

The interior and exterior decor is modeled after classic corner pubs in London. Kilt-clad servers add to the authentic ambiance. A large, irregular-shaped bar in the center of the venue is equipped with optic pourers, an inverted system that originated in Europe. The Pub also serves nearly two-dozen varieties of single malt Scotch, which can be sampled in flights of three.  

The menu includes an array of British pub fare, such as fish and chips and shepherd’s pie, along with a variety of salads, sandwiches, and burgers. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner seven days a week and also offers brunch on weekends.  

This is Tavern Restaurant Group’s 10th Pub location and the fourth in Florida.
