Pub in Copenhagen and surroundings is like stepping into an English pub. Very nice atmosphere here. Quit good selection of drafts and service was quit nice. Only setback is that it can become quit smoky and that ruined the experience with the beer. Nice place that I will defiantly revisit.
Nice, fake English pub with wooden panelling and lots of English beer memorabilia. Quiet place with only conversation. Rather small. Has some real athmosphere, since many people clearly come here to sit at the bar and chat with each other and the barkeepers. Nice selection of rare English ales, plus some more standard Danish craft and other beers. Lovely place.
Nice and friendy English style pub in the city center, located between Ströget and Den Tatoverede Enke. Small and cosy place with friendly and efficient service. Up to five British cask ales and some draught beers from Germany and Danish brewers like Thisted and Hancock. Selection is not huge, but quite good and with a little luck you might find something new. If not, it’s worth a visit just for the atmosphere. And it’s quite close to both Den Tatoverede Enke and Lord Nelson.
If you’re looking for a traditional British cask ale in Copenhagen, this is the place to go. There are usually quite a few on, although when we visited on 24 May only three of the six listed were available. I think they included Crouch Vale Best Bitter and Batemans Triple XB. We fared better a few days later after the Great Baltic Adventure had passed through on its way to St Petersburg leaving 2P, Thornbridge St Petersburg and St Austell Imperial Russian Stout in its wake.
It’s a small, dark place with a brick floor, the bar crammed into the centre and a bottle glass window through to the cask room at the back. The ceiling above the bar is decorated with pewter mugs; elsewhere there are beer mats and bar towels under perspex, including some of the Shepherd Neame Spitfire ones. I always forget to check whether they have my favourite: “No Fokker comes close”. Too much else to look at - there’s a large blackboard listing the beers and other drinks on offer and the walls are covered with brewery-related pictures, posters, maps and a diagram showing “Charlie’s world famous cask cooling appliance”. There are also English and Danish newspapers in a rack under the Westmalle clock by the door.
The top half of the front window opens fully to create a sort of outdoor bar on the narrow pavement. Inside, seating is at four tables in the front, at the bar and in a crepuscular area at the back. They serve snacks – crisps, pork pies, beer sausages, pickled onions, pickled eggs and nuts. There are also pub games (DKK50 deposit) and free wifi.
Service is usually good and friendly but not consistently so. It seems to depend on who’s in. English is the language of choice and, in addition to some interesting and friendly locals, there always seems to be at least one self-important ex-pat talking loudly and perhaps a group of brash young men, like well-behaved football hooligans, intent on demonstrating their command of four-letter words and competing to see how many times it’s possible to fit them into one short sentence.
(Last visited 30 May 2011).
It´s a cosy little bar, always something new on draught I haven´t tryed before. If I feel English. A bit to much cigaret smoke, but still good.

A nice place when you want a cask. Nice selection and interesting beers. But this place was way too crowded when we visited laton a friday nite. It was hard to even find a place to stand and drink your beer without having it wasted.
Visited again in July -05. This time on an saturday afternoon, and it was alot better. A few people there, very relaxed and much better than in the weekend evenings...
A cosy little bar with a nice selction of British ales and stouts - some good Danish and Belgian beers as well. If you’re a fan of British beers, this is the place to go.

Alltid spennende øl fra cask her, men betjeningen er lite oppmerksomme, de har det for travelt med å pumpe øl. Men sannsynligvis det beste stedet i København for engeleske cask ales. Pluss for at der ikke er musikk, minus for at det ofte er overfylt. Fint på enkelte ukedager når man ikke må presse seg inn.
A true Danglish pub (DANish + enGLISH). Cosy i suppose, propably best for a after work beer on a weekday afternoon when it’s less crowded..
Friendly Crowd, decent and changing selection of english Ale’s and Ciders and varying Danish Micros-
Crowded and used to be very Smokey, But perhaps i’m getting Old, since this annoys me.
Let’s see how the new non smoking policy works in the winter!!
