Description: This is a very popular pub close by the Opera etc. I wanted to list it under Nightlife, but didn't find that option, and neither do I see any reviews of it. The pub is a very popular place to go have a drink while watching sports. Local beer was very cheap, 500 FL for a pint of lager, service was quick and friendly. Atmosphere was great ! Would definitely come here again..

“My favorite bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

There are some english/scottish/irish style bars in Budapest, but this is the best one. The prices are correct, the feel is pretty authentic and the staff (including the owner) is firendly. I think it says most about the place that it is always packed with brittish expats.

They have a really good choice of beers and even better range of whiskys. The food is also above average - but I am not that familiar with the scottish kitchen to be a credible source. Their hamburgers are pretty tasty though.

If you want to get the feel of the hungarian pub scene it is not the place. But if you need a little "english" surrounding this is definately where you can get the feeling.

“Looking For Sports Pub to Show Saturday Premiership Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Came across this Scottish pub while exploring back streets off Annassey Street and called in to see if they would be showing English Premiership games over the weekend.
The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful.
The pub was full of expats and locals giving off a great atmosphere. Didn't try the food but they had a good choice of local and imported beers.
Worth a visit if you want local info.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Lived in Budapest for 8 years now, this is by far and away the best sports bar in town with an authentic Scottish owner to boot. Great imported beers, nice kitchen, huge whisky selection, really friendly staff and authentic atmosphere. What else could you want?!

“Great cider in A/C”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

It's 100 degrees outside, but this pub was worth the walk for the delicious cider and cool air conditioning! Very friendly bar tender who we swapped stories about scheming taxi drivers with. At the time of posting, the kitchen is closed for renovations.
