“The Pub with no food. Great intimate atmosphere”
Sir Winston is a classic English-style pub, centrally located on Karl Johan Street 10, right next to Oslo Cathedral. Since the opening in 1969, (hence the photo of the two serious guys, taking their beer seriously on opening date), we have focused...more

Not much to choose from on the major street, which is weird, but this little pub was pretty good. Cold beers, pretty decent service. Problem I had was too many chairs and tables squeezed into 2 very small patios. Aside from that it was great...More

Dropped in for dinner, however found out that a lot of such places do not have a Kitchen so are just bars. This wasn't a big issue as a drink by itself was fine. Enjoyed a cold beer in the warm cozy environment is big...More

Thanks! Cold beer & cozy environment is just what we’re doing.

For classic beers, or more experimental drops (ask the barkeeper..) this is the place to rehydrate in downtown Oslo. Sitting outside watching the world go by, or cooling off inside watching a football/soccer match, or just hanging out in this very british style interior, you'll...More

Freezing outside so popped in for a pint or two (who am I kidding, we stayed most of the day getting drunk). Great boozer, the decor is oldie worldie and looks like a boozer should. The only downside is that the toilets are tiny. Nice...More

Dropped in on a very cold winter's afternoon just to get out of a snow shower. Just had hot chocolate, hot green tea, cappucino. Old English style pub, snug little corners and nooks to sit in. Friendly service.

Popped in here with a few friends for a cheeky pint. Was very pleasant. Nicely decked out with booth type chairs, nice outdoor area at the front which is heated. The beer is as expensive as expected. The staff could try to smile a bit...More
