Very good beer

Great atmosphere and excellent range of beer. There's real ale and really friendly staff. One of the best pubs around Helsinki, takes about 15 minutes with bus from Kamppi.

The range of Beer and Whiskey is astonishing, at least in Finland The atmosphere is cosy, almost like home If you like it more quiet, go during the week. If you like more party feeling, go after the local hockey game.

What can I say - great atmosphere and even greater beers! A huge selection is available and the bartenders are very knowledgeable. Take note though that only serves light snacks, best for drinks.

Close to the atmosphere of a British pub in Finland. Limited selection of food but extensive beer and whisky. Nice atmosphere with a typical mixture of people of all ages. Great place to have a few pre-drinks before going to watch an ice hockey, basketball or football game with it's near proximity to the Tapiolan sports centre, home of Espoo... More

... and definitely in Espoo! A great selection of craft beers from around the world and from Finland (including several microbreweries) packaged in an authentic English pub atmosphere and decor. Very highly recommended!

Great selection. Nice interior. Friday and saturday nights gets packed and loses the cozy atmosphere. Best with friends to go for one or two during a weeknight.

A large selection of different kind of Finnish beer, specially from small breweries. Interesting tastes and pleasant experiences. The personnel is nice and they have good knowledge of the served beers.

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..
