“Good place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Found this place while my daughter was tearing the guts out of my credit card in the local shops and I was in need of some liquid comfort. The barman was very helpful with advice on the beer available and the beer was good. If you want somewhere with clowns juggling with the bottles and awful beer go somewhere else but if you want good beer and a good atmosphere it is highly recommended.

“Go there for the beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The bar has a good and continously changing selection of very well kept English Real Ale as well as a good selection of high quality beer from around Europe.
The place is small and often very full and yes the service is "English" where drinks are ordered and paid for at the bar. I have always foud the staff to be friendly.
Thankfully (as far as I am concerned) there is no smoking inside.
English pubs in England have moved towards a more family freindly environment and serve a greater variety of drinks. Charlie's is very much for the beer enthusaist and the simply isn't room for much else. Charlies offers top quality beer at very competitive prices.

“Only place in Copenhagen to get Aventinus on tap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great place to drink beer.

Rather unique atmosphere in inner city Copenhagen - laid back and unpretentious.

Service is in English, and this, to my knowledge, is the only place in Denmark to get Scheider Brewery's brilliant Aventinus beer on tap - in itself a good cause to visit.

“Several good beers on tap but otherwise lacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This place has several good beers on tap and free Wi-fi which is good. But apart from those 2 good things we weren't to fond of the place. It is small and cramped but not in the cozy way. Service was very slow, I got the feeling the bartender ignored us on purpose in favor of the locals.

There are better places to drink beer in Copenhagen.
