We discovered The Friends Pub quite by accident as it was not far from our apartment and straight away loved the atmosphere. It's very friendly and the drinks were not expensive. It's a nice place to watch the world go by and it was an experience to be there on Easter Saturday night when Fiorentina played AC Roma. The bar was packed with all the locals glued to the big screen. Sadly the football itself was dire but the enthusiasm was great, and the food seemed pretty good. When we next come to Florence we know we'll be back at Friends.

I stayed in Firenze for the month of July 2013 and frequented The Friends Pub. The bar keeper was indeed friendly and poured a perfect pint of Guinness. The weather in July was wickedly hot and a late afternoon pint was most welcome. I also felt welcome. I would sit at a table, read Dan Brown's Inferno and watch folks come and go and the owner interact with his friends. The pints are reasonably priced. The pub is just a few minutes from the Ponte Vecchio (on the Oltrarno side) and not in a really touristy area. The pub doesn't open until around 3 or 3:30pm and isn't terribly busy before supper. I highly recommend this spot for a bite to eat and a pint.

Walking by and popped in for a drink. Nice bar, semi Irish as in they do Irish coffees and sell Guinness. Off the track a little for the full tourist feel, which was a nice escape. We would recommend the Irish coffee :)

Happened to pass it on the way for gelato. Definitely not Florentine but a nice place for a beer and a glass of wine. Setup like an English pub. Staff was great and friendly and bathroom was clean.
