A nice cosy place with a decent atmosphere. Good to get a couple of the Aarhus Bryghus beers just after the brewery had opened. Otherwise lots of UK bottled beers but they are not really of much interest to a visiting Brit, so its a bit dificult to give a sensible score for Selection. An essential stop when in Aarhus though.
It looks like a very old pub, and as often happens, it’s quite dark inside. The selection must be the best in town, with a handful of Real Ales on cask, their own lovely Wintercoat Cockney Imperial Stout (best beer here), Fur and Kongens on tap, one real cider and, impressive, a good number of bottles, mostly English self-imported ales that you won’t find elsewhere on the continent! We got also good advice on the beers, and directions for a splendid restaurant (the Mephisto). I’ll become a regular here...
Visited several times.
Prefer to visit this english styled citypub in the summertime, since smoking is allowed, and then I can sit outside. Placed in the citycenter it is easy to get to. Nice selection of beers both on tap and in bottles. Mainly from Denmark, UK and USA. If in Århus, for sure worth visiting...
Old english pub with about 15 tap’s with mostly Danish and english beers + cider and 1 cask. Decent bottle selection aswell. Many regulars, service can be abit on and off, depending on who is behind the bar. As a big downside smoking is still allowed wich makes it hard to taste your beer. Its possible to sit outside in the summertime.
One of the best beerplaces in Denmark.
Great attending customers willing to talk about what good beer is about. Outdoor serving in summer. If you are lucky really rare beers are on tap. Sometimes (easter and in Århus festuge) you can get really treats. Good whisky selection aswell.
Prices exstremely low considering its location in Aarhus center.
Rerated because of no smoking area cancelled. Way too smokey to be pleasent. I am considering only to come in summertime so I can sit outside!
wintercoat & fur on tap together with westmalle dubbel & prinzregent luitpold. A lot of British ales. The place itself is cosy and the atmosphere is calm. The waitor didnt however felt like providing any kind of service on a medium busy saturday in october!! However one of the better places in Aarhus to visit!
The staff are mostly busy talking to the regulars. They do know their beers though. They have a good selection, but they don’t change their taps as fast as they used to. They allow smoking inside, so I only visit in the summer when I can sit outside.
Five or six real ales, a cider from cask, as well as 12-13 beers and a cider on tap, and a good selection of bottles makes this an interesting place to visit when in Århus. If it’s too crowded, there’s a sister-pub just around the corner, but without the casks when I was there. The girl behind the bar at Cockney was quite busy, but was paying attention very well, rapidly taking my order. I dislike the smoking in the pub, but one of the two rooms seemed to be smoke free.
A really nice British Pub in the center of Århus, situated in the one of the pedestrian streets, but just off of the really trendy cafe street, so the beer prices are very reasonable. It became my regular while I lived in Århus - and I still visit very often - like every fortnight - after moving to Copenhagen. The friendly staff and the continous stream of new beers and the events bringing in new beers keeps me coming back. Definately the best place in Århus - and one of the top bars in Denmark.
Located in a small lane in the old town of Aarhus, this tiny pub and whisky bar is a nice place to stop by when on a shopping spree in the city. The interior is rather old fashioned and minuscule, featuring a short bar and 7 small round wooden tables and chairs around them. Lots of old knicknaks, mostly beer emblems, decorate the walls which are in need of redecoration. The staff, consisting of a single jovial elderly plump gentleman, is nice and friendly. The selection includes some quality Danish beers and a few standard UK and Belgian brews. An impressive number of taps considering the size of the venue. Regular prices for decent beer in this part of the city. Might be back again.
