I’m not a fan of the UK pubs on the continent. And I’m not exactly fan of Belhaven. So I’m not really fan of places like this. Had a Belhaven Best on tap, if I recall correctly there was nothing interesting beerwise. Ok atmosphere but wouldn’t consider visiting it again even if I was nearby.
Source for Belhaven beers in Budapest. Also for Scottish food and whisky. Whisky selection is impressive, food selection is OK. Beer selection is so-so, Sometimes they have Belhaven Best on tap, some times they only have Belhaven bottles (You can have Hungarian industrial beer on tap in these occasions, which is no, thanks category, so it is better to stick to the Belhaven bottles). This is clearly a sports pub for Scottish/British expats with focus on football, rugby and stuff like that.
Others have mentioned that Kaledonia really specializes in whisky first, which is true, but it is a great place to take in some sports. English Premiership games are always broadcast here and they have the full line of Belhaven Ales. Some on tap (keg) and the others bottled. I enjoyed the Robert Burns Ale and the Wee Heavy the most.
English (well Scottish) pub. 5 taps. Belhaven beers on bottles. Quite quiet on Wednesday afternoon. Good service. English spoken (even better than in Scotland...). OK location just off the Oktogon. Not the worst pub in Budapest.
I visit here often to get my fix of well-poured ales. The servers here all speak English very well and are fairly attentive. The food is usually quite good and probably has the best hamburger in town at a reasonable prices. They only now have Guinness, and Dreher and Kozel pilsners on tap. (no more Belhaven Best on tap!) They also have the good selection of Scottish bottled beers and ciders that are normally found in the UK. Pretty much the best place to watch sporting events and getting some good food in Budapest. They also have a very good selection of whiskeys.
A fine Scottish pub with a solid selection of Belhaven beers (the only place you can get them in Hungary I reckon). Fast and very friendly staff that speaks English well (refreshing in Hungary really). Missed out on the food, but likely won’t the next time I visit. Oh and do keep in mind that the 80 Schilling and the Scottish Ale are the same beer so that you don’t make the same mistake we made.
