I did not realize that this was a chain bar but no matter it was a comfortable place with a friendly staff and a nice selection of Beer and spirits. It is located on the older side of Lyon very near the Rhone river.

Well, I actually spent a wonderful brunch time there on Sunday. I quite felt like home in Great Brittain. I forgot I was just in Lyon. To taste other flavours, other meals was just a momentary breath of holiday !

We watched the Champions League Final here and it was a great time! The veggie burger was delightful (we're both vegetarian) and service was great given the number of people who were there. They got us good beer in good time :)
