The live music played in the pub was good. The cost of beer / spirits was on the higher end we experienced but a good selection. My partners only gripe was his pint wasn't served in an air flow glass and went flat almost immediately.

We enter only to drink a beer but the space are very nice and we set and take a beer or two. 😁 The 80's music was very nice.

We sat at small table in bar area and ordered from the bar. A good assortment of beers and on tap. The bartender was attentive. We had a quick snack and a couple of beers while there. If around Tivoli and looking for a place, this is around the corner on Hans Christian Anderson. Not a bad spot to drop... More

Stopped in for a drink. Staff was outstanding. Nice decor with comfortable seating. Unfortunately, they do not have a pub menu which we hoped for. Excellent service!

Happy hour between 6-8pm when you can get half price drinks. Centrally located near the main station and Tivoli Gardens

We went to watch an England match during the Euros. The decor was what you'd expect and most of the bar staff were English. The screens weren't particularly big but there were plenty of them. The beer was extortionate! Around 6 euro for a pint of Carlsberg! There was a lot of choice but they were equally priced! Copenhagen is... More

So, this place managed to fail in every aspect of customer care: - emails sent went unanswered - no response on their facebook page - no information on their website. Arriving on the day of the FA Cup final, we went there to ask whether they would screen it. One word answer: "No". We ask whether they know anywhere else... More

My girlfriend was desperate for a Strongbow whilst we were in Copenhagen so we decided the best place to go would be an English pub. The atmosphere was chilled out and the bar staff were very friendly. The prices are what you would expect in a capital city, no complaints.

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
