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!
I have a soft spot for this place. Not the greatest selection. Staff are fine. However I just like the atmosphere. Quiet conversations, people playing games, reading books. Unpretentious. The sort of pub I’ll happily while away a couple of hours.
Real ale available. Friendly staff, who seem to know what they’re doing and can suggest beers if you ask them about specific flavours or types. Lots of Swedish and English speaking people. Not too wide selection, but they rotate beers regularly. Gets crowded in the evening (afterwork). Tried their toasts, and found them to be ok for the money.
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.
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.
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.
