We went to Novomestský Pivovar on Sunday night for dinner and of course to try their beers. Not too many people since the kitchen was closing in 30'. We sat at the lower level, nice ambiance but a little bit cold. I preferred the first level (entrance level) which was much cozier. Helpful service, food was OK. Only two of their beers available, which I didnt like. Average Czech prices. As gnoff said when they brought us the bill the waiter said that the price was without service. Having read his review we gave a nice tip :D

Friendly staff. Nice restaurant with the brewery inside. Cozy cellar. Good and solid menus. Only 2 beers on tap, both low ABV, light and dark, both boring.

Latest visit on the afternoon of August 4, 2017.
Stopped by for a late lunch and their two beers.
Service was close to decent, up until we were about to pay. He slammed the money I gave him down onto the table and then screamed that service was not included. So again, tips is not included, but if I am giving tips in Czech I expect good service, and it is still voluntary, not something you have to do. Quality of their beers seem to have gone down as well. Food was decent, but the goulash was not even close to that, more a beef stew with sausage (?) in it. Feels I do not have to go to this place any more times.

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.


Earlier ratings:
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 size 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?
Score: 4/4/7/8/NA/12=54

Nice place close to the old town. Two beers on tap when I visited the place. The beers were nice but nothing special. Nice and friendly staff.

A quite small brewpub / restaurant in a small street cwhen going to the old city. Beers are correct, but less choice and service is not that friendly. Pleasant stop anyway.r

Stopped in on a whim while walking around old town Prague. The tradional Czech food was pretty good, but the beer only fair. Ambiance reminded me of the big brewpubs in Munich.

Had tasting sets for the beers but seemed to me the only ’real’ ones were a light and dark. And they weren’t great. Well priced though and the food looked interesting.

Lovely interior, very civilised. Staff efficient. Touristy prices, but not too scary. 4 beers or beer drinks to chose from, quality was passable. Was starting to fill up even though it was morning. Worth popping in if you’re passing, but probably not worth going out of your way for.
