I dropped into this place trying to find a bar that wasn't completely filled with smoke. I did appreciate the fact that this venue caters to both smokers and non-smokers (there is a smokers section outside). From the moment I walked in, getting any sort...More

The Pub was a good spot for evening drinks. Fair priced and well located. Sizzling beef was really nice with Lion draft! Friendly staff

My husband and I both had pasta. His vegetable spaghetti was good. The carbonara I had was ok. They have a karaoke screen playing music from the 50:d to the 70's which was pretty entertaining.

Don't eat here, simply go for a drink. We were stuck here on new years eve because all else was closed, otherwise we would have left. Does not deserve a high rating on trip advisor. There are much better places in Kandy city.

Very rude staff that wouldn't even give us a menu when we showed up. Musty and dirty bar with bad ambiance. There are very few bars in Kandy , so I imagine that's the only reason this place survives .

Super relaxed and chilled! Just sit in the balcony after a full day’s outing. Enjoy a chilled beer or ginger beer!

Noisy bar with unpleasant staff. The food too was just basic and not impressive. A little more effort and I believe they could do better.
