I didn't really care for this place but I think it was more due to the patrons (bit pretentious) than the actual bar. They have a nice layout and large bar. The decor is nice and the staff was friendly. They have a lot of screens above the bar to watch sports and it seems to be a popular spot... More

A very busy pub and on a beautiful day, a good place to sit out and have a drink. Whilst I am slightly embarrassed that we went to an English Pub on holiday in Iceland, it isn't really an English Pub! Decent lively pub and there is a good mix of customers.

Great beers and great crowd for watching football (soccer)!! Several games are always on their big screens, so you can catch your team if it is playing. Boisterous, but not rowdy crowd during big matches.

We stumbled into this bar when it started to snow. We couldn't have been happier. As we waited for a table, we got some beers at the bar. We loved that they only served Icelandic beer and I quickly found a stout that I dare say, was tastier than my fave (Guinness). We then sat down and ordered up the... More

Nice lively pub in downtown Reykjavik. Good range of beer and not to noisy. Enjoyed the Eurovision semi final which is VERY popular in Iceland.

I saw this Pub and then heard it calling my name. I answered and gifted with great atmosphere and a perfectly poured Guinness. All locals, but me. Loving it! No food offered. This is a drinking establishment....

When we arrived, we were the only people in the place! Another 2 people followed, then an elderly gentlemen - the 3 of them all left and another couple came in to play darts, so it was nice and quiet the whole time we were in there. It was a lovely little find, drinks (as with everywhere in Iceland) were... More

We called in for a quick drink and a rest from the walking. The interior looks very English - dark wood bar and tables, leather upholstered seats, football, darts and good choice of alcohol available in English pubs. Very friendly and surprisingly quiet for a Saturday lunch time. English music too!
