“Handy local”

The Port Shield Pub
Ranked #23 of 442 Nightlife in Istanbul
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We stayed at a hotel just up the road from here and noticed it on the drive to the hotel.
From the moment we first went in we were made to feel welcome and the service was excellent.
The prices were high, 15TL for a lager and 25TL for a Guinness, but your in a big city so what do you expect.
Didn't eat there but the food we saw looked OK.
'Bill Bailey' behind the bar was a good laugh and handy having all the football on from all over Europe.
All in all worth a visit.

Why go to Turkey to sit in a London style pub? If you don't want to miss a major sporting event (we went for 6 nations) then go otherwise avoid. Over £4 a pint for local beer, don't even think about the Guinness without a second mortgage. Was a good atmosphere but many of the staff are rude and surly.

The cheapest beer on the menu (a carlsberg knock-off pilsner) is 15.50 TL. That's about 5-6 TL more than the most expensive beer I saw everywhere else.

A mixed drink runs 22-28 TL. $15USD for a mojito? No thanks!

Nice and cosy. Looks a bit shabby from the outside, but friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Food options are typical pub grub.

This pub is a classic tourist trap. Advertising its coverage of football games, foreign fans flock here. We did the same but decided not to stay. A Guiness cost 40 TL (20 USD) and other prices were also out of proportion. Go to the street parallel and below it and you will find better places!
