If you’re missing good old British food and craving what you can’t get in Lyon / France, this is the place. Loads of British beers and - if you live in France you’ll know you can’t get decent cider. That first pint of Aspall went...down in seconds. They import their sausages and bacon from the UK so the all day breakfast is a must. Friendly bi-lingual staff so no issues if you’re not confident in French. Excellent service and a good atmosphere. Lots of French eat / drink here so can’t be too bad!More

The food was good, made to order. The meat for the burger was fresh and cooked perfectly. The place is tight or cozy, depending on how you feel. The service was good. All around decent place.

Stopped here while walking through Lyon on a Sunday afternoon. Great selection of beers and staff really friendly on arrival. We ordered 2 Sunday roasts and waited over an hour for these to arrive. When they came we were very disappointed to receive a small...piece of chicken, couple of potatoes and some seasonal ‘tinned’ vegetables. We also received no Yorkshire pudding and when we questioned this we were told they had ran out. This is something we should of been told on ordering because we would of chosen a different option. The breakfasts looked delicious. We were asked if we would like a hash brown or piece of toast to substitute... on a Sunday roast ! Would return for the beers but not for the food.More

Looked around for a bar with tvs so we could watch the USA/France match. Knew we would be outnumbered...However a few USA fans found their way in and shared the fun with us. This small bar busted buns ALL NIGHT to serve the crowd. AND...the burgers are pretty tasty too.More

Complete with sticky tables, loud conversations in English and your typical drink offerings. Nothing wrong with this place but it doesn't stand out except for the amount of English speakers it attracts.More
