Grand selection of beers and ciders available with very helpful staff. The settings is pretty pants though, it's pretty much a sausage fest every time I have been there and it smells funny. Still keep going after hockey matches..

You would never imagine to find such a beer oasis in the ugly building next to the busy roads. But there it is! Lovely beer selection, welcoming staff & friendly locals. I would rate The Gallows Bird the best public house in Espoo.

This beer pub is very nice. It is a surprise to walk into a classic very good quality beer pub in a quiet location in Espoo. They have plenty of different beers and the restaurant has a nice look and feeling. This can be a very good choice to go with friends for a beer in Espoo.

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
