“Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

To lovers of the film: a place where everything IS Lebowski, from the fixtures to the drinks, DOES exist!

Had an absolutely smashing time here with friends. Great crowd of locals, the best White Russians, glorious tunes and, the coup de grace, Big Lebowski constantly on the silver screen.

While you can't hurl your bowling ball down the lane (as it's on the wall, rather than the floor) take your chances on the spinning wheel behind the bar. Maybe you'll win a round for the lads...

“Best ever cheese burger !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Don't be put off by the exterior, happy hour was 5-7 pm it's 2-4-1 on wine and beer. In Iceland that makes the price much more reasonable. We had burgers and chips, honestly they were the best burger. Give it a go.

“Fun bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

When I saw this was a Big Leboswki themed bar, I had to go in.

I can be a bit crowded on the weekends, but the service was decent.

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

It may have been the staff that evening, but we walked out after 5 minutes. Staff seemed uninterested, bar was eerie feeling, and our menus were dirty and covered in sauce. we walked up to order our food, and the staff literally looked at us, and walked away from the till .Such a shame as we read good reviews here, and in the WOW air magazine, but would never return after this experience.
So many more welcoming places with excellent food within a stones throw of this place. I would pass it by.u

“Fantastic find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

On the main street in a great location. Happy hour fro 4-7 every day. Cost around £5.50 for a beer and a wine. We had two drinks and a burger and fries each and bill was only about £20. Great music. Would recommend a visit.
