Almost everywhere in pubs you get just fried and greasy food. The Banshees Lodge is a welcome exception! Every fortnight the entire menu list is replaced with other excellent and sometimes a little exotic menus. Vegetarians as well as meat and fish lovers will find something to eat. Check out their Facebook page for the weeks menu. The delicious home... More

Great bar with excellent beers and none of the plastic leprechaun and shamrock nonsense. Music is mixed and eclectic, decor is subdued but atmospheric and beer is great - except Boddingtons shaving foam of course. I had one of my favorites 'Old Peculiar' from Masham in N.

This is a unique venue. The atmosphere is great; lighting dim; music not too Irish; the food is awesome and the beer exceptional. The staff are friendly and the customers relaxed. Children are made very welcome. If you don't like paying Swiss prices then make sure you're at the Banshee's Lodge between 6 and 7 o'clock for their happy hour.... More

This atmospheric candlelit pub is in the beautiful old town of Fribourg. There was a wide range of beers, teas, and lemonades and an excellent short food menu with options for vegetarians. Highly recommended.

this area of Fribourg is pretty dead in the evening, this bar is tucked away on a side street but well worth the visit if you are in town. Great atmosphere, live Music, candlelit bar, so welcoming, we didn't eat there, but the menu looked great, regret that we didnt eat there.....
