Felt at home as soon as I entered this one.Dark wooden interior, maybe more British than in UK. 20 taps including some ciders. Very service minded bartender at my visit, and he had 4 Finnish beers on tap, the rest was a good mix of UK beers, amongst them Siren and Redchurch. No music played during my visit,buzz from people drinking and chatting was enough to fill the room with athmosphere, recommended place.
One of the oldest (if not the oldest) English- style pub in Helsinki, near the Kamppi shopping center. This is definitely a place better enjoyed in the winter, as the interior is pretty dark, murky, with darts and boardgames to keep you entertained. The service will vary depending on the mood of the bartender, and the standard selection is not that wide. But with a couple of real-ale taps, and a good history of importing top-class bottles from different places, it is one of my favorite beer pubs in this city.
I would say this is my home pub and visit here quite frequently. The beer selection is not the best possible, but it’s quite broad. Like others said, they have monthly changing real ale on tap. I would steer away from the toasts which used to be better, but are quite generic nowadays. They have two dart boards and a tv showing all major football games (I think..) and they host a pub quiz.
Very nice place with at least two constantly changing real ales on tap. The staff varies from very knowledgeable to just basic skills, but usually they are pretty friendly. The beer selection is not the greatest, but pleasantly different from other (chain) beer houses in the central area of Helsinki.
Interior resembles a British pub. Small handful of cask ales on offer plus drafts and a whole lot of bottles, all posted on small chalkboards behind the bar. Flights of three for 12 euro available, their suggestions or yours.
Another english- style pub. Looks old. Feels old. Smells old. Lively in the evening. Lost my whole day beer notes to the toilet pot. Found them from the same place. Not ruined. Great success! Found Anna and mjs here. I think somebody fell asleep, not sure. Goddards!
I feel like Frodo looking in Galadriel’s mirror: "things that were, and things that are, and things that yet may be". Must visit again!
