It's always a difficult task to get themed pubs or bars just right.
I'm a Londoner and EPCOT's Rose and Crown makes a decent enough effort to reproduce an English pub without really nailing it totally.
Finnegan's also has a good stab at re-creating an Irish bar. Believe me when I say I've seen far worse attempts in England.
I have to say that we once spent a great afternoon ( yes most of the afternoon) in Finnegan's. The food was comparable in quality to the Rose and Crown but edges it because of the variety on offer. The Guinness flowed and we all sang along with the excellent guy with the guitar ( Who was as far removed from Ireland as chalk is from cheese). But no matter. We drank and sang in unison ( and some disharmony ) and had a good laugh. The beauty of staying onsite allows for missing ride -time and also allows for a beer or two as you can walk safely ( albeit unsteadily) back to your Hotel.
So where would I prefer to have a pint ? Finnegan's to be sure.
ps We were handed free Guinness vouchers in Leicester Square last night and had a couple of pints for free. So cheers Arthur.
