One of the few places showing premier league football in zurich. Unfortunately the food is terrible. We ordered nachos which weren't cooked in any way, tasting like store bought tortilla chips with ready made salsa. The price was extortionate for something so simple. Avoid the...More

I never take the time to write a poor review, but this place deserves it. I understand Zurich is an expensive city. However the quality of the beers, and the disgusting burger and chips we got here are as low as I've had anywhere. Avoid...More

Authentic English pub within center of Zurich. All you can eat chicken wings for very reasonable price every Monday evening. Price is low if you don't drink to much after happy hour.

I was once again in Zuerich and dropped into Nelsons for a beer. The beer was good, stuff was friendly and fast. The Pub was crowded on a Friday night so seems to be popular. Overall a good experience but nothing special to mentioned
