Terrace outside, but we sat inside. A simple interior, easy on the eye. Food was very traditional czech fare, we had a mix of curious starters, which worked quite well. Light, dark, and an in-the-glass mix of the two was available, all were reasonably passable. Staff did their job perfectly adequately. Plzn isn’t a great place beer-wise, so this is pretty OK measured by that scale.
Fancy looking place once you find it (it’s behind some modern tall glass building). Smoking inside is allowed, so fck ’em! Food (pork tenderloins) was bit raw, but potatoes were nice. Only 2 beers + mix were available at the time.
House is dated back to 1721, as manor for a coal baron. Located behind an other tall new building only five minutes from Šenk Na Parkanu. Menu tells that the polotmavy semidark beer is an original Josef Groll recipe from 1840, just before the Urquell adventure began. Menu is good, I went there twice. Tasty. Not long time to wait. Good young staff all of them. Only place with Groll beers, so go there when in Plzn.
Stayed 2 nights in the guesthouse. The room is small and simple, but the price and the location compensated for it.
Only 2 local beers on tap, but since they were wonderful, I did not miss a wider selection. The unfiltered pale 12 lager called Groll is a must. It stole the show from the unfiltered Urquell for which we actually travelled to Plzen. Next time I will travel for this beer. The dark lager was also very good (it was a 12 one, not a 14 one: I guess sometimes they change what they brew...).
The pub is cosy, the service was quick and good, although we were here in November and there were few guests, so I cannot guarantee the same for a busy summer evening.
We liked the food as well, typical Czech pub dishes at high quality.
Overall: loved the beer, loved the place, excellent, not to be missed.
