Great place. Friendly staff. Fun atmosphere. Heaps and heaps of beers to taste. What more could you want? You can play pool or darts as well.

Nice and cosy pub in a industrial zone of Espoo. Excellent selection of beers. Cozy atmosphere would prefer this place if it would be near the sea front.

A wide selection of beers from GB, US, Belgium and Germany. Some Finnish brands are available as well. Even it has a little bit odd location (almost in the middle of nowhere), there is a lot of people almost every night having a beer or two or even more... I have never tried to eat anything in Gallows Bird, so... More

A great selection of beer combined with a very relaxing atmosphere makes this pub (in a somewhat hidden location) one of the best in the Helsinki area.

In Espoo you don't have a big choice of local pubs that you could consider visiting for a good pint of beer and relaxed, yet, cosy atmosphere. Gallows Bird is a great choice. They have an excellent selection of beers and wonderful service. If you look the directions from Reittiopas, it is easy to get to, but not very near... More

The Gallows Bird may well be the best pub in Finland. The atmosphere is instantly welcoming, and the selection of beers is simply astonishing for a Finnish pub. You will almost always find real ale, and a selection of current special offers. If you are in the area in January, be sure not to miss the annual Real Ale Festival,... More

Best pub in Finland. Hands down! There are some other good spots in the city, but The Gallows Bird has a fantastic rotating and seasonal selection. It's a good size and very comfortable, although it can get busy on Friday nights for example. Food is okay but not amazing; you come here for the excellent range of beers.

This is well off the beaten track if you are visiting Helsinki. Maybe not worth the bus/taxi trip as you can find similar places in the capital (Kaisla, in Kaisaniemi and all the Kala-pubs). But if you are visiting friends in Espoo or staying in Tapiola and start feeling thirsty then this is the place where you can have quality... More
