So rerate time of this again.
Been here several times since 2005, usually only go back these days for food. When here to eat, preferably bo booking in advance, all is fine. If you swing by for a beer then expect not to much. Updated rating with scores is per the latest visit only.
Latest visit was Saturday evening, May 23, 2015. Arrived shortly before 18:00 with a group of 11 people, with a pre-order of the roast piglet.
Sampled the 4 beers with flavours; banana, ginger, coffee and caramel. Also had the light and the dark beer.
Roast piglet was awesome as always, service was OK.
Centrally located, right by tramstop Vodickova, also walking distance from metro stations Mustek and Narodni Trida.
I’ve visited Novomestsky Pivovar once, when I was in Prague for one week in May of 2005.
I will be going to Prague again in less than two weeks time and have booked my birthday dinner and a guided brewery tour of the pub brewery for our group.
They have a 10-12 kg roast pig if you order at least 24 hours before, so that’s what we’ll be having :D
Last time I can remember trying two beers of theirs, the light and the dark. Don’t think they had any other beers, but with that quality, who needs more?
Very nice as a home brewer to be able to taste Czech pub brewey beers.
Food is very nice too, and good sice portions of that.
The place is a bit pricy compared to many non-tourist places in Prague, but it’s worth a visit and I’d say it’s pretty much mandatory to visit it at least once when in Prague.
Can get quite crowded, so might be a good idea to make reservations or come as small groups (or alone).
Visits to the brewery is possible, but make resevations to be sure, specially if you want the guide to be able to do the tour in English.
Rerate: Time to lower the service score, the guy refused to let us pay with a 500 note for two beers, he laughed at us and asked if we were kidding! What’s a tourist to do then?

Very nice place on great location not far from city center. They have 8 beers which are good. You can also take samplers. Food is cheap and great. I also took a brewery tour (brewery is in the pub), and it was great experience. It’s worth because it’s cheap and you get 3 free beers. All in all, it’s great place to visit.

A huge venue that caters for hoards of tourists, popped in for a late supper and a quick tick or two. Beer was OK but uninspiring. Service was OK.
Smoky atmosphere put me off a bit as not used to such things. now I’ve had the beer I wouldn’t bother again.

Very good place. It’s a huge restaurant with great taps: light, dark, 4 flavoured brews + bottled "sekt-pivo". Food is good.

Visited on 5th Oct 2014: not overly impressed to be honest, the two draught offerings were bland and uninteresting and our meals were just about OK. Modern, slick and touristy in nature, down a corridor but easily found on a busy tramline street just west of St Wenceslas Square. Service was fine and it isn’t a bad setting really, but it was the biggest disappointment on our 7 day trip to Prague.

Visited in 2007. More of a restaurant then a pub but they do have their own beer. Pretty decent beer. The food was hearty and nice just what I needed and worked well with the beer. The service was very slow. I bought some beers home but they where horrible when I got home, smelled of sulfur.

Might have been unlucky with the beer as it was dead and quite lacking in taste. Service well under par, average food that arrived so quickly I got the impression everything was pre maid. Tourist trap.
