Nice traditional pub interior(a bit similar to Jekylls), and quite a good selection of beers and whisky. We were there on a tuesday after having been to the cinema, so itís not as crowded as I suspect there will be in the weekends.
We didnít eat, so I donít know about the food. Friendly staff.
A nice pub Iíd like to come back to!

A bit outside the normal "beer area" of Oslo. But htis is a nice old brown pub that has survived. Absolutely a decent range of different ales.

Den Gamle Major, or The Old Major, is a very cozy pub located in the Majorstuen-district of Oslo; it looks like an "old time"-public house, of which there arenít many left in Oslo.
Although I did visit during their quiet hours, my friends and I were all delighted by the attentive and helpful staff.
Additionally, the staff proved very knowledgeable regarding their large selection of beer.
I havenít tried any of their food, although their little food menu was very tempting, including their homemade bar snacks. The prices for food and drink werenít all that high either.
Overall, Den Gamle Major is one of the most pleasant bars in Oslo, and compared to most places in Oslo, they have an ample selection of beers - Definitely worth visiting!
Note: The only reason I didnít rate the food higher was because I didnít get a chance to try it.
