Beer oasis

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.

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
