It's a few years since we last visited, and it has really gone downhill! It used to have a quaint, olde worlde charm, but now it just looked old and grubby! The lady behind the bar was unfriendly and on verge of being rude, and there were no British lagers on sale (that I could see). We didn't stay for... More

A very expensive pub, with great staff but the owner is a creep who will rip you off if he can. The night we were there we ordered 3 pints one of which actually didnt exist as the pump had not been installed-despite being on the beer menu. david [--] (the owner) substituted the non-existent beer for a small bottle...

I stumbled upon this pub with a group of friends and was really impressed! This pub has a really tasty bar menu to cater for all tastes and a lovely outdoor seating area, which is great for relaxing in the summer sun. The owners were extremely welcoming and the service exceptional, therefore If you like a traditional pub atmosphere with... More

a Monday evening in the city. Started my walk from Grand hotel, noticed the pub but kept walking and looking for a convinient place to eat. Walked around the Dome, and rounded train station ending back at John Bull. An excellent choise after all. Nice service, free WiFi. Recommending Strongbow cider with fish & chips!

One of my favourite pubs in Lund. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the food never disappoints.

There are a number of good pubs in Lund, however I tend to choose this one as it's excellent. The food, especially the breakfast, has always been spot on and the crowd that frequent this pub, always welcoming. Quite surprised to see some negative comments about the staff as personally, I have always found them to be very friendly and... More

I am quite picky when it comes to Ceasar sallads. Don't want tomatoes or cucumer in them, should be the real stuff. Last saturday I visited the John Bull Pub in Lund and tried theirs with cicken. It was really good. The dressing could have had some more garlic and anchovy flavour to it but other than that, the sallad... More

I had dinner here with a few colleagues. It's a pub with a nice evening atmosphere. It was about half full when I was there. The food is surprisingly good. I had a hamburger with French fries, which was pretty good. The pub is located within a few minutes walk from the station. I would recommend this to people who... More

Went here with a few friends to have a beer. Long story short, after we'd been ask to move to another table (due to a newly made reservation) that did not exist with newly ordered beers and we'd approached the waitress about the seating problem, the "manager" (not sure if it was manager, but he didn't give a clear answer...
