The Pub opened up a couple months ago in the newer section of Polaris mall, and has been going gangbusters ever since. There are several lots in walking distance.
The interior is big and spacious yet has several spots that are cozy, including nooks and a "King's Room" which is tucked away in the rear and features 4 Belhaven taps that are devoted to that tabe and utilize a computer to keep track of how many ounces are poured. The majority of the space is devoted to table seating, with the lovely wood and lantern bar in the middle.
The Pub has a decent tap list devoted primarily to beers from the UK. There are around 20-25 segmented by region (Belhaven, Young's, etc) plus one on cask (CBC Porter on my visit). As for bottles there are a couple dozen again with a primary focus on the UKm but with some other goodies like DFH and Bell's available.
Service for our large group was well coordinated among several in the staff, and it was evident that they all had to chip in to help each other out as the place is still constantly busy. I was skeptical at first due to the Vegas-like practice of dressing their staff in semi-revealing clothing, but our primary server had a good sense for the beers they carried.
While our party was relegated to appetizers only, they were all presented well and tasted good.
Overall this place is a worthy visit on the north end of Columbus and thus far The Pub deserves the crazy crowds it has been getting.

The Pub is, located behind Polaris Mall, and just opened December 08. Sure glad it did, because it was a real treat. I haven't been to England, but The Pub in Columbus is wonderfully decorated with an ambiance that makes you feel like you're in a pub in England including a waitstaff dressed in kilts and EPL soccer showing on many of thhe flat panels located around the bar. Lots of bar space, and numberous tall cocktail tables makes for ample seating.
The "Beer Bible" you given listed 24 beers that they had available on tap at that time representing 5 regions, Britian, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium and United States. Cast beer was not available duing my visit, but is listed on the beer menu. Quality selection of beers from each country including some great regional beers from the midwest including a number of speciality beers like burbon barrel aged ale. I felt like a kid in a candy store. There were also easily twenty plus single malt Scotch and Burbons listed. It's safe to say that you have many great choices to make regarding what to drink.
Oh, the food menu looked great too, but I didn't have an opportunity to enjoy it at this time. I'm looking forward to visiting again and spending more time sampling the food and beverage menu.

Unhappy to be stranded in Columbus after an ice storm flight cancellation. Happy to be able to be the first person to review this bar.
Attached to a mega mall, which is the last place I'd expect to find a good beer bar. Walking in, it's a disney-esque British Pub. Wood as far as the eye can see, a huge bar in the middle of the pub, bartenders in kilts , HD screens showing Premier League matches, and an uncountable number of beer taps.
Saw the cask handle and asked if anything was availible; being a wednesday I was pleasantly surprised to hear it was Bell's Two Hearted Ale. The bartender, Jaime, was well versed in the nature of cask/real ale as well as how to pour and serve it.
Draft beers included a premium selection of a dozen or so British ales including Fullers ESB and London Pride, Bellhaven, and Young's Double Chocolate Stout. American Ales, which seemed to be less numerous than the British versions, included Breckenridge Vanilla Porter and Dogfish 60 Minute IPA.
Food was reasonably priced but not particularly notable.
Service was outstanding, forthcoming with samples and advice for both drinks and food.
There seem to be quite a few specials, including $4 pints (even on cask ales) during Happy Hour.
Overall, this place far exceeded my expecations. It's been open for about a month, and next time I am in Columbus, I'll be back.
