Alus Arsenal , a nice bar and food selection

Called in for lunch and a drink and pleasantly surprised by the selection of beers, most hand pumped, wines and food. We opted for shrimp with cheese cooked and served in a saucepan. Very tasty and good value, with great service.

We stopped by the patio for a drink and snacks on a lovely summer day. They have a very comfortable outdoor section with a good location to watch the people, admire the buildings, enjoy the plentiful flowers and look at the multiple, quirky sculptures sprinkled throughout the square. It would have been very difficult not to have a good time.... More

Terrible service, waited about 30 mins before our order was taken and then almost an hour before we received our food and drinks. The main meal was simply awful and honestly tasted like sweaty feet.

I have never eaten anywhere as bad as this before. The service was slow and we were left for a long time before our order was taken. The food was inedible and the chicken and potato pancakes was the absolute pits.

We just wanted to eat something today and we accidentally took that restaurant. I was very surprised about their. It was so juicy and fresh. It is very difficult to find it so tasty outside the USA.

Atmospheric restaurant in a cellar. Good range of local dishes accompanied with a good selection of beers at very reasonable prices. Excellent sausages and black puddings. Baltic sardines for starters and the ubiquitous garlic bread to go with your beer.

We came for Sunday lunch at about 2 and it was very quiet. The choice of food was good, my husband ordered the ribs which were very substantial and I ordered the chicken and cheese casserole with crisps and 3 different dips which was light and did not fill me up. My husband struggled to drink anymore beer for a... More

Went here on a Saturday evening and they gave us a table that was already reserved for another party. We had drinks shortly after and the waitress warned us that food would be a little slow as there was a party of 30 there. Regardless we were still eating within 30 minutes of placing our order. Food was quite good.... More

Well, we went to the restaurant on a feeling that it should be kind of restaurant with tasty local beers and delicious local food - according to Tripadvisor as well. We got non of that. Beer tasted like made on own bathroom and the ribs were flavoured with a boiled water. So nothing very delicious. We really don't recommend this... More
