Stopped into the Mile after searching for places to try on a weekend trip to Des Moines. This seems a very authentic replica of a British or Irish bar! The wood bar is worn and dark and dotted with old style box taps for the draw beer. The whiskey selection is outstanding and the prices are ridiculously reasonable. They have most of the best and oddest Irish whiskeys and a great selection of scotches and other spirits. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food is made from scratch and the portions are good!! We had the stew and it was tender and savory with veges and a deep satisfying gravy. We will stop here every time we come to Des Moines

Amazing bartenders. A vast selection of British and Belgian beers. Unmatched wall of scotches. Solid food. Friendly locals.

I'm thinking that these guys are still recovering from their pandemic woes. Recently, service has been very slow and the food has just been okay. Hopefully, they can get through this rough patch quick and back to who they used to be!

Amazing food, cool atmosphere, and the service was great. You have to try their chicken pot pie it was unreal not to mention the large selection of brews


Service was friendly and helpful, The Food was exceptional ( try the Bangers and Mash). Unique atmosphere in downtown Des Moines. plenty of parking in the area. Will go back.

They have a good collection of beer and whiskey. We ordered few flights of beer and they mixed it up. The identified one as an IPA but it wasn't. Happened for most beers. Had a bad experience.
