Very small and crowded pub in the heart of Kalmar. Make sure you are there on time. They are mostly known for all their different types of beer. Always friendly and welcoming staff

We chose this pub on a mild summer evening because it looked lively, there were lots of people there, and there was outdoor seating. The server was very friendly, spoke good English, and answered our questions about the menu. My wife and I started out by sharing the vegetarian salad, which was very tasty--lentils, greens, veggies. I had the burger,... More

The grill stays open late and the girl that waited on us was very attentive and friendly. We came in quite late at night and got everything we wanted and more. I... More

Stopped off in Kalmar for the night and went here. Beer selection is impressive as is the whiskey. We ate there and the double burgers are excellent (rib eye minced steak). Could have stayed all night but driving the next day.

The pub was a great place to relax and also to grab a bite to eat. Typical bar food such as a hamburger plate or fish and chips, but tasty. The beer was maybe a little pricy compared to other pubs. On the whole, I would definitely go there again!

Best pub in Kalmar, no doubt. A great variety of beer, and with classic pub food - nothing fancy but you will not leave the pub hungry. Cosy environment, but the staff is not always at their best mood.
