If you’re looking for a traditional British cask ale in Copenhagen, this is the place to go. There are usually quite a few on, although when we visited on 24 May only three of the six listed were available. I think they included Crouch Vale Best Bitter and Batemans Triple XB. We fared better a few days later after the Great Baltic Adventure had passed through on its way to St Petersburg leaving 2P, Thornbridge St Petersburg and St Austell Imperial Russian Stout in its wake.
It’s a small, dark place with a brick floor, the bar crammed into the centre and a bottle glass window through to the cask room at the back. The ceiling above the bar is decorated with pewter mugs; elsewhere there are beer mats and bar towels under perspex, including some of the Shepherd Neame Spitfire ones. I always forget to check whether they have my favourite: “No Fokker comes close”. Too much else to look at - there’s a large blackboard listing the beers and other drinks on offer and the walls are covered with brewery-related pictures, posters, maps and a diagram showing “Charlie’s world famous cask cooling appliance”. There are also English and Danish newspapers in a rack under the Westmalle clock by the door.
The top half of the front window opens fully to create a sort of outdoor bar on the narrow pavement. Inside, seating is at four tables in the front, at the bar and in a crepuscular area at the back. They serve snacks – crisps, pork pies, beer sausages, pickled onions, pickled eggs and nuts. There are also pub games (DKK50 deposit) and free wifi.
Service is usually good and friendly but not consistently so. It seems to depend on who’s in. English is the language of choice and, in addition to some interesting and friendly locals, there always seems to be at least one self-important ex-pat talking loudly and perhaps a group of brash young men, like well-behaved football hooligans, intent on demonstrating their command of four-letter words and competing to see how many times it’s possible to fit them into one short sentence.

Pretty true British-style pub. Nice range of casks (really, there’s some impressive stuff to be had in here) and decent kegs, too. Pump clips adorn most of the available ceiling and wall space. Good spot. I could happily spend a bit of time in this place.

Small, oldish wooden bar that feels rather authentic if a bit extreme on breweriana, especially coasters. A bit pricey (say 8-9 dollars per pint), but that goes with the city. I was not very lucky with the selection when I was there, but it changes a lot and quickly. So a good place, but by the city’s standards, I don think I would be back..

It has been the first place outside UK where I found Real Ales, so I have it "In my heart"; some cask ales are really great, the only sin is that they indulge too much on Fuller’s, and also on watery ales. Viva Crouch Vale!

Crowded and rather small British Pub with 5 beers on cask and some British and German beers on tap. Good service, pleasant if not over crowded and rather inexpensive for a popular Copenhagen pub.

Pretty authentic atmosphere in this tiny and narrow english pub in the heart of København; broad selection of british beers plus some "exotic" brews from Bohemia, Ireland and Germany. Unfortunately not all beers were in perfect condition… Nevertheless always worth a visit!

Authentic English cask house, pretty small. 6 handpumps, 5 on when I visited. Interesting selection of keg, Czech, Belgian and English along with native offerings.

Visited several times, great place to go if you are up for some real cask beers. Cosy small pub, close to the city center, and therefor easy to get to. Friendly staff, nice selection of beers, normally served in good condition :-). No food is served, only beers :-)

A British pub with cask marque accreditation right in the middle of Copenhagen. Perfect for beer drinking while the ladies are shopping at Strøget nearby. Six British ales on cask and always some Danish and German beers on tap. They also had a few draught beers from Porterhouse in Dublin at my last visit. I like coming here, even though the pub is in need of redecoration (Visited 26.03.2010).
