I popped in here whilst walking around and exploring Basel on my last day in Switzerland. Having used the same venue in Bern a few days earlier I knew what to expect with regards to drinks and food. It was about 4pm when I went in for a drink. It wasn't busy at all with only about half a dozen... More

I would recommend this place to go for a drink and to watch sports in good atmosphere but the burgers are really not to be recommended. It's not even minced meat but a weird patty. Burgers come without any side. Nachos were okay but nothing special.

Enjoyed breakfast and lunch at this pub. Main attraction for me was access to Eng;ish Premier League matches. Plenty of choice of beers, price of beers and food seems to be very similar at all establishments of this nature.

Even though Switzerland is expensive and Mr P is no difference we found it to be a great place for drinks and laughs. Great Guinness & marvellous Magners. Good was ok but again expensive compared to the UK. Staff were great and friendly. They also hold special events with reduced price nights, quiz nights and live sport.

I came to this place with a colleague. The place does really make you think you are in England. There is a good a good variety of beers available. But the beers are pretty pricey. We also had to eat, and the choice in food is a lot smaller. However the burgers on the menu are exceptional (considering you are... More

I had time to myself one sunny day and decided to sit outside along the river. This was a delightful spot do to so with a cold beer. We also ate there for lunch one day; fish and chips and a burger. It was all just ok. Nothing fantastic, but good.
