“Really Good Pub”
Review of Banshees' Lodge

Banshees' Lodge
Ranked #40 of 208 Restaurants in Fribourg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

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. Yorkshire (bottles). A real pleasant surprise. Wish this was open when I lived in Fribourg 15 years ago. Did not eat but what I saw looked nice also, and its in a good spot in the Old Town. Definitely worth a visit.

Good service, great beer, a cool crowd, fantastic atmosphere.
Totally worth the walk down the hill and the test of wobbly boot control on the way back up.
Superb choice for a few ales.

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. And you can sit outside (cushions on beer kegs) weather permitting.
Not open Monday or Tuesdays.

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.....
