Awesome gluten free food and safe for someone with Celiac Disease. The wait staff and kitchen are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My daughter and I have never gotten sick from eating here. I love this place!

Many students and casual late working folks eat and drink here. The food has always been good. The atmosphere is fun and very pub like. You can find all types of beers there. It's .mainly sandwiches on the menu but always delicious.

I enjoy going to JRB. Usually have drink specials and good variety of food. Odd though that an English pub would use a cheap trash fish, tilapia, in lieu of traditional cod. That should not discourage anyone from going to JRB's - just order something else if you are not a tilapia fan. Friendly staff and a few televisions for... More

Having been a resident of Arlington for over 43 years, when I want a good sandwich and cold drink, I head for J.R. Bentley's. I've never been disappointed. Great atmosphere; nice folks on both sides of the bar; people in the kitchen who really know what they're doing. Great place to go to meet someone you know for a few... More

We love this "Pub", great food, drinks and a friendly staff. We usually go for a few cocktails, then take our lunch or dinner home. Always just what we ordered. Try their BBQ sandwich, very good. We recommend this place to all of our friends and bring company visiting here.

Went last night for singer songwriter night. New local guy played well. Cheeseburger was great, fish & chips very good. Nice choice on beers. Funny server at bar entertained us a bit. Crowd is younger as its next to UTA. But all behaved nicely... quite a story about pub history too. Give it a try... I think you'll be happy... More

I have tried it a couple of times for lunch and once for happy hour since it re-opened following a fire. Dana has done a great job reestablishing the best UTA and downtown pub in Arlington. Lunch selections could be a little more varied with vegetable choices and economical selections. But the ambiance is excellent and the waitstaff friendly. And... More

The waitress, Kaitlyn, was top notch and the food was good, but this place is lacking in a good vibe. Needs more decor. It was all wood floors and wood tables. Need to create a comfy feeling. Need to try to create a vibe more like Gilligans or Maverick. That with their good food would be a good combo. Would... More
