Ug, I hate to add this place, as it’s not a place you’d want to go to, but it has gone out of its way to select nearly 100 of the region’s worst pissy lagers, so at least deserves to be listed for those in desperate need of a tick. Don’t want to head up north to Finland whilst in Estonia - don’t worry - we’ve got Lapin Kulta here! I turned down the opportunity to tick 2 ubiquitous bottles of piss in my last visit, a visit which caused see-your-own-face-in-the-reflection-from-the-back-of-their-skull blank faces as I asked for Chimay Blue, the only decent beer in their several fridges. We were fortunate to be able to sit near to people who’d bought a whole bottle of vodka, so they could go from shot to shot without having to worry about queueing at the bar repeatedly. Or worrying about trivialities like being able to remain upright on their seats, and not be sprawled on the floor next to us. If this happens to you, the polite way of saying "excuse me, do you need help getting up?" is "milline teist litsidest tahab tansida?" But hey, that was a thursday evening, my memory tells me that it’s actually quite a nice place to eat at lunchtime. Alas that was a memory that contained several good beers - in sharp contrast to the reality of there only being one. A shame, as they’ve put a lot of effort into "themeing" the pub with the mafia stylings.
