English style pub with macros on tap such as Carlsberg, Guinness, Belhaven etc. It was the only half decent place to open early on a Sunday, so we ended up here. I had a Belhaven Twisted Thistle which wasn’t in the best of conditions. No reason to come here again really.
Stopped by here for a quick beer on our way from the hotel to downtown Århus, and enjoyed a beer on the outside. Friendly service, but that don’t help much as I find the beer selection rather uninteresting. Still, we stopped by on our way back to the hotel as well, and then shifted to the neighboring Sherlock Holmes pub, which is more or less equally uninteresting for a beer lover.
Located on the edge of the pedestrian zone in the old town, the place is a regular sports pub with a moderate selection of standard beers from Denmark (for specials the bartender proudly showed me a bottle of Westmalle and one of Fuller’s London Porter). Nothing new for a non-rookie on RB. When I visited the place it was full of Germans as die Mannschaft was playing Portugal in World Cup 2014, and, given the formidable result of 4-0, the atmosphere could not be anything else but great. As soon as the game was over, though, the pub was only a refuge for ardent dart players. I might be back one day if I happen to wait for a train in Aarhus or so. Otherwise not very inspiring.
As a Brit abroad here, was interesting visiting the Golden Lion. The beer selection I had a feeling was not going to blow me away, and subsequently on visiting it didn’t. The selection was your usual mix of Guinness/Kilkenny/Tuborg, but there was a couple of specials on tap from British based brewers at least. The main reason for visiting is the food. Four of us all ate different dishes and they were positively received by all. The bangers and mash went down a storm for me, as did the cottage pie etc for others. Will defiantly pop by on next visit, if the traditional English breakfast or Sunday roast is anything as good as what we had that night. Obviously this is not a massive beer must visit if in Aarhus by any means, but if in the area and fancy some traditional UK pub grub, doubt you will find anything better in Denmark.
Old school traditional English pub with TV screens and lots of football games on display. Cosy setting and atmosphere with a few regulars on a Tuesday afternoon. Places filled up later due to Champions League. Tried the popular fish ’n chips, which lived up to the hype. Very tasty and well proportioned. Industrial tabs and few common bottles as well; Stella, Hoeghaarden, Fuellers porter, pride, esb. Serviceminded and smiling staff.
Nice english pub with few industrial taps and bottles. They serve traditional pub food but I didnt try it. The most interesting tap was Green kings Abbott. Otherwise the usual suspects: Hoegaarden, Kilkenny and Guinness. They do have some fullers: London pride, esb and porter. Frindly staff.
10 taps and 10-15 bottles.
