In the center of old Lyon, a few meters from the cathedral, a good choice to sit for a good beer and eat something at a good price. The reheated fish and the grilled frozen potatoes were the only option. Sauces to flavor...

Not speaking great french I felt very lucky to find this pub during my visit to lyon. The ever gorgeous and hospitable barmaid was extremely welcoming and helpful along with the local drinkers who made me feel at home instantly! I couldn't ask for a better place to drink and meet new friends. The beer is good too! Thankyou guys... More

My business colleagues and invited guests wanted to grab a night cap after dinner. Since the bar at the restaurant was closed, we wandered into Old Lyon. This was the only place open. It is an Irish Pub ran by Irishmen. The mood was light and friendly. Great for a last of the night beer.

Can't wait to return! Bar staff and crowd were lots of fun. Can't imagine a better place for a pint. Didn't try any food on this visit.

Went here for a cold brew after a day of sight seeing. Old school Irish pub. Nice selection of drafts at reasonable prices. Friendly bartender. Outdoor seating on one of the main walking streets in Old Lyon near the Cathedral.
