Greta Irish bar near the centre of town, serving high quality, traditional irish & English cuisine - fantastic cod & chips, excellent bangers & mash, terrific steak n ale pie, plus the best burgers in Geneva and much more! Open lunch times & evenings Monday to Friday for full menu and on Sunday's there's a delicious beef roast with all the trimmings! 5*s for food quality, ambiance and wines. Would like it promoted to share the enjoyment with others!

Happy to find this place

Really happy to find this pub, nice staff and great pub atmosphere. Lots of beer on draft, Stella, Kronenberg, fosters, and more. Not much in the way of night life in Geneva, we were grateful this place was there - didn't eat here so can't comment on the food.

Dreadful. Just dreadful. Lax service in the first place which culminated with 4 plates of cap being served up, 2 of which didn't get eaten and the other 2 not finished. I love Irish pubs but this was nothing like one!

This is my local pub and it's a good spot for a pint and pub meal. Its got a good pub atmosphere and is popular for afterwork drinks, particularly given so many missions and international orgs are just up the road. Service has always been great. There's a good variety of beers on tap, and the food (well, I only... More

At first glance it does not promise much but is you are with a good company it can a good place to enjoy the company. It's a really Irish place where you can have a nice evening or just after-work drink. They serve tasty chips if you have no intention to have dinner.

Big pub with terrace, BBQ (for burgers in the summer), sports on TV, good beer, and a brilliant atmosphere! That's where I feel at home in Geneva! A good place to be! The Geneva Irish Association has organized events there and the service is good - at Paddy's day this year, the food was excellent! And food in general is... More

This may very well be a nice place to watch a sports event on their numerous large TV-screens while having a beer or two. But do yourself a favour and do not order their burgers (cannot comment on the rest of the menu): at 20 CHF this is a total rip-off, yes, even by Geneva standards. The ultra cheap bread... More

Did not disappoint: we wanted proper pub grub and that's what we got: burgers and bangers & mash and onion rings etc. Lots of food on the plate, and friendly service.

Friendly staff. Good sized terrace. Good selection of draft beers including Staropramen, Guinness, Kronenberg, Kilkenny, Boddingtons. Just under 10 CHF for a pint. Free wifi. We were there early on a Friday evening for afterwork drinks and it seemed to be reasonably busy.
