Nice place

The avocado chicken bacon wrap was really good. Great atmosphere free wifi. Owners were friendly and loved tastings from the menu. Also a great place to watch any sports and sing karaoke!

I come here for lunch or occasionally dinner, and the food is definitely okay. But the real star here is their huge list of drinks and beers. They don't have many beers on tap, but the place makes up for it with the many in bottles that they carry. Plenty of imported, and local craft brews (including those on tap)... More

We've been to the local quite a few times since moving to Beijing and it's a great bar for food and drink. On this occasion we brought some friends to the bar for a few drinks and some food. The drinks were very well priced and there is a wide range on offer. Bar service is usually excellent (whether from... More

The basic "Pub" food available. Serving sizes are good and service quick and efficient. Small outdoor area for the smokers!

Nice "Local" place. Like the variety selection of craft beer. Menu also has large variety to choose from. Staff has always been attentive each time visited. Will keep returning as long as in Beijing.

The bald owners are very aggressive, rude and arrogant towards customers. We went to watch the football in bar and grill as usual on a Saturday we don’t always go here but sometimes frequent it. To cut a long story short the owners wanted to fight or throw out me and my friend for asking to put football on the... More

Hello- At The Local, we love what we do and genuinely care about our customers. Our biggest goal provide good drinks and food in a comfortable environment. I understand how important premier league football is to you and your friend. It is not a priority for us. I stand by the fact that we are not a sports bar. We... More

Stopped in here for a quick drink and some familiar snacks and was very pleased with the food, drinks, ambiance, and service. There was a sports game going on so the TV's were on full blast but that didn't detract from the cozy, pub-y atmosphere. It's a great place to get your night started, or to share some beers with...

Stop in for a quick cocktail with the missus as I've heard a lot about the place. Can happily say it is worth the hype and I can't really pick anything I don't like. Great place for a sneaky drink!

Great place for a beer, cocktail and some delicious bar food. The artichokes were delicious as were the nachos! Others tried the quesadilla and loaded waffle fries. The service was excellent, very attentive servers.
