A little bit hard to find down a back alley. I was surprised to find all the signage inside in Catalan with no translations into Castellano, this included the entire beer list. I was there early on a Friday night. The staff was friendly and attentive, especially when they figured out I could actually speak some Spanish. Being someone who is someone who is sensative to cigarette smoke, it was the first thing I noticed when I went in, much more so than in other restaurants and bars in Barcelona. However, that went away as I settled in. I took a look at the bottled beer list, and it seemed decent (although who knows what they actually had). There was a fair selection of Belgians and some Czech, German, and farther flung beers. I’d like to visit again if I have time to really know if my first impressions were correct.
This is a very hard place to review as I loved and hated it. The place is nice and very English with all the wood. A very young vibe. Staff was superb, some of the nicest and best staff in Barcelona. Beer was very bland and no flights, but take a tour and you get them all. Bottle list was bizarre, with the great, rare and just bad all in attendance. Take away prices are really good. Although I wouldn’t likely go back, I am glad I went.

Maybe this was a worthy place some years ago, but seems that this is not true anymore. We just wanted to try some beers and were served full pints without asking (ok, we didn´t request half pint, but service must always ask...). The chili porter was completely infected, and the smoked one was off. Really poor experience.
A decent enough place, a brown wood pub in a fairly British style(?). Service nice enough, majority of beers were off and/or messy. So a bad experience. And were out of quite a few of theirs. Not worth dropping by.
