We rely on Trip Advisor a lot to inform us about what's great when we travel...and this is one of the rare instances that it let us down! Feeling a bit tired of Chinese food, we voted for a Western option and chose the Lakeside Pub because it was close to us and had good reviews. We disagree. The service... More

Service is outstanding and people like to go there to relax and talk abit. They have rooms too. Food menu limited but it is about relaxing and it is located next to a lake with nicely lit sidewalk. A bit difficult to locate but very close to eveything.

Description
This is a pub located in the very heart of the Guilin city and it is a part of the Lakeside Inn(look for it from accomodation).We have cold local beer, cocktails, whiskey which can give you a wonderful time after or during travel. We also provide western breakfast, coffee (Latte, Mocha, Cappuccino ect) and Chinese snacks. Being the owner, Jack is an outgoing world traveler. His nephew and assistant, John, is a college teacher in Guilin Tourism University. They speak English and know the city well. You might get some travel information while sitting in the pub. We can help you plan your stay in Guilin on your request, and take you to experience the city like a local. We would also be happy to arrange the excursions to places like Li River Cruise or Bamboo raft to Yangshuo, as well as one day trip of Longshen Rice Terraced Filed. We also could help you to book the train or plane tickets. We try our best to make your visit a unique and memorable experience of the Chinese culture.
