“Good food and great beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic. The food is very good. I probably had one of the best beers of Bulgaria. Definitely better than most of the hoppy style commercial beers

“If you like beer, this place should not be missed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Suggest print out a map if you plan to walk, although a taxi driver should be able to find it as it is on a main street. Live beer is brewed on site and they have a novel way of self service. Basically each table has a tap for you to help yourself and is metered (in litres) so you can keep a tally of how much you are drinking. If you don't want beer, there is an extensive drinks list with lots of wines too. A really good food selection. My only complaint was food service was slightly too slow and items not brought together. I orders salad starter, trout and potatoes to go along with it. The potatoes were brought to the table far too early and it was at least 15 minutes before the trout was brought to the table. Other people who had sat down before me also looked to have waited a while too. Food was exceptionally good and total price was very god.

In house brewed beer with taps in each of the booths. It was fantastic. The food is fresh and delicious. My favorite bar in Plovdiv.

“An Irish pub with beer coming from the walls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

As the similar restaurant in Sofia, Plovdiv's Ale House offers the same white variety of food, Irish pub style furnishings and beer coming directly from the walls. Good to go there with colleagues and friends and have several beers. However, not suitable for families with young children or babies. On specific dates, there are also live performances. The good news is the musicians are usually good, the bad news is you need to pay about 1-2 EUR per person for entrance, no matter whether you like the live music or not.
