Less mainstream Anglo-imitative than when I visited it four years ago. Would still have given it a higher rating were it not for the incessant loud music that drowned out conversation. Mainly lower strength beers (to 5.5%) and very central.

Rune  (502) Tromsø, Norway | October 1, 2015
An informal, British-like, brown pub in a pedestrian street at the entrance to the red mountain (Rödbergen) area of town. Medium sized pub split into different seating sections and with a patio outside. The tap menu is shown on a huge blackboard to the right of the main bar. Among the tap lines there are quite a lot of craft ales form Finnish breweries. Satisfying pop-rock music in the background with Blur, Cure and Clash. Posters on the walls of Motörhead, Anthrax, Slayer and so on underlining the rock attitude. Black Door promotes a good pub feel and should not be missed. A cozy and friendly place with attentive service offering different sample sizes of the pub’s draught beers. Good red wine for Frau Eva (visited on a Saturday afternoon, 26.09.2015).

Black Door was our first port of call in Helsinki due to the central location and rather good opening hours (in comparison to other bars in town). It has quite an authentic English pub style going on with a obvious focus on draught beer, including a couple of hand-pumps. Kegs were all from Finnish microbreweries and casks from the UK. Small, but decent selection of bottles. Service was friendly and attentive. Plenty of locals enjoying a beer or two during the day. A pretty pleasant place to consume some golden nectar.

Svesse  (239) Hässelby, Sweden | April 5, 2015
(Visited March 2015) Nice pub, in old-fashioned brown wood. Quite a large place, with the bar to the right of the entrance, and drinking areas all around the bar. Service was friendly and efficient. Around 20 taps with a good mixtures of Finnish micros and imported beers, from around the world (mainly the traditional beer countries), of good quality. I visited on a Monday evening, so it was quite slow and far from crowded. Finnish ice-hockey play-offs on the TV. Definitely worth a visit, I’ll be back on a more busy evening.

English style-pub. This place has this kind of old and worn-out vibe. Stench of spilled beer and cider from last night welcomes me as soon as I enter. It’s a compliment. It shows me that people like to come here and drink more than just beer or two. It’s a feature what sterile modern "pubs" will never have. Fridges look bit empty, but they just opened so it’s obviously too early. And I see barman filling them with new beers as I drink my beer. Cozy. Will come back and recommend this place to others as well! Staff was bit sleepy but friendly.

Quite close to center of the Helsinki. Nice atmosphere of old English pub. Staff is friendly and have done their homework. I found this nice living room accidentally, but will come here more often. Tried there Real Ale for the first time. Fun.

Decent location, personal and warm atmosphere, friendly staff and a good selection. Not much to hate here, frankly. Would consider this my living room if I only lived closer by.

Fairly close the center of the city, an English-style pub with a lot of craft beer on tap. Mostly from the UK and Finland, but there are a few Americans, Germans and Belgians too. A couple of real ale taps as well as one for cider. Knowledgeable staff who are friendly and talkative when they’re not too busy. Sometimes have live music fitting to the theme of the pub. Probably the most atmospheric of the craft places in Helsinki.

A great English style brown boozer in the centre of town. A great selection of draft ales from around Europe, great staff, good prices and solid wifi. A decent bottle selection too. What more could you ask for?

Nice bub with a patio on the pedestrian street. Small walk from the central downtown, but worth it.
