Premises indeed much detail, I had never visited a pub of this type before today. The premises is divided in large rooms with long tables where a neighbor is sit all together. The served beer was a single one when I visited U Fleku but for this the place cannot be said of low level. All other. The atmosphere has been only to the presence of old phisarmonic and bugle musician all the present ones that sang and laughed. Impeccable service with cordial staff even if sometimes a lot insistent. Huge.
Supposed to be the oldest brewpub (continuously brewing) on the planet. HUGE place, ENORMOUS. Very touristy, was there one local in this huge place? Annoying musicians playing from table to table for tourists. Felt like a German Oktoberfest. In what country am I again? Very very loud place filled with annoying tourists. They have only one beer, a tmavy. At least the beer is good. Good but pricy, maybe the most pricey beer I found in the country. The one-size bock is 0.4L, not even a pint! What the hell? I’m drinking lagers in Czech Republic, I want a pint dammit!!! Service is impersonal staff under pressure to sell you stuff you don’t want (shooters, etc.). Worst service ever. The one beer is good but I despised everything else about this place.
I visited here in August and I have mixed feelings about the place. I was rushed into the front seating area which was just a large drinking hall. Was very very busy as expected from the few tour buses out front. I was happy to try the beer but just as happy to leave. Perhaps would be enjoyable with a large group. Definitely check it out for the house beer if nothing else.
I think I’ll have to visit this place again sometime in summer. Beautiful building from the outside, big wooden hall on the inside but no decoration whatsoever. It appeared to me as if a lot of areas of the building were closed. It started off quiet when we arrived at 5 or so, but quickly became packed after working hours. Very good house beer, had 4 pints and still wanted more. Service is very quick, they don’t ask but just get you a beer (I told my girlfriend to take a good look at that ;-) . They also try to shove you some Becherovka, pretend it’s free but you pay double the beerprice for it. But hey, we’re tourists having a good time, and Becherovka is a nice bitter herbal liquor. I enjoyed it, food was OK, accordeon music sucks bigtime as always but contributes to the atmosphere. Worth a visit just for the beer.
Cool place. Only one beer that was pretty good though. Historic place. You have to stop if in prague

A beautiful location, a great place to be. A very good ambiance . Sometimes the staff is quick and sometimes you have to wait for a while for new drinks. Live music. You have not so many choise. Only there own kind of beer. The food is good. If you are in Prague, then you have to be once in U Fleku.
OK, 4 for ambiance. Looks great, though the crowds and amusement park atmosphere detract. Waiters are generally useless, the beer is over-priced and over-rated. I won’t go again, and I wouldn’t recommend it except that the beer is so famous and can only be got here.
