“Cosy, good choice of beer and lovely fish and chips”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

This is a great place in an otherwise rather dreary corner of Uppsala. They have a huge range of beers and it does actually feel quite like a pub!
It's clearly popular with the locals and it's hard to get a seat, but it's worth stopping for some great fish and chips. There's remoulade instead of mushy peas - but otherwise better than many British pubs.

“Nice atmosphere in a small portion”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Highly service minded and friendly staff and great varieties of beers.
Food is from average to darn out delicious with a tendency to unusually small portions for bar food

“Poor service, crowded”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

It took an age to get served: the order was taken innacurately and it was difficult to attract servoce during the meal. The meal itself was OK butin reality this pace is little more than a burger bar

“Avoid the food, ok for a beer”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

This place has got a cosy interior and a good selection of beers, not too expensive to be Uppsala. However, the food is not what will make you return to this place. We ordered burgers and one in the group wished to have it cooked rare. The waitress reply to this was "ehh, we usually don´t serve them rare". No kidding, since the burgers obviously are prefabricated and directly from the freezer. Not acceptable at the price! The long blonde hair found in one of the other burgers did not exactly add to the experience on the positive side, especially as the comment from the staff when pointing this out was "oh that’s strange, no one in the kitchen got this long hair". No offer of compensation whatsoever. Besides this, the fries were dry and the coleslaw a sad story. To sum up, visit this place for a beer and avoid the food. The people in the kitchen do not cook with love, and even though the waitresses surely try to do their best they seem to lack professional experience.

“Many different beers”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

This place is the pub attached to Hotel Uppsala and is allways quite busy, not allways possible to get a table. Has a very wide selection of beers and whisky's, many I have never heard of and some can be quite expensive, 1 beer we bought 34cl cost over £9 each.
