I don't usually like 'Irish' bars abroad, but Red John's is a little gem! It is welcoming and friendly, without going over the top. The location, right on the river is lovely, particularly during the summer months where it is a great place to relax...and have a drink. If you're looking for a decent spot for a drink amdayne a bot of a chat in Solothurn, you could do a lot worse! p.s. they also show the likes of the Six Nations Rugby matches with English commentary which is great...More

I never stepped foot inside. It was a nice night so we sat outside. But the server who took care of us was friendly and we never seemed to wait very long. The beer was beer and the whiskey went down easy. I'd come back...here.More

With its fantastic location on the banks of the river, this pub manages to please both the seekers of cozyness and those on a night out, depending on the time of your visit. The very diverse and extensive drinks menu gives plenty of options to...the thirsty. Recently the two hosts have even gone so far to brew their own beer, great stuff. Speaking of the hosts, staff is always very knowledgable about the beers and whiskies, are super friendly and know how to entertain a crowd. Only drawbacks are the relatively small size of both the whole pub and especially the restrooms.More

Full of locals enjoying a Thursday night beer, popped in with a couple of colleagues for a beer after dinner. A typical Irish style bar adorned with football scarves and shirts, the barman was very welcoming. One word of warning is that this is a...cash only bar, no cards.More

Ask for Fritz he's our favorite bar keeper here, always smiling, funny and caring. If you're lucky and he happens to like you he might sell you his Fritzes-Spezial ;) No really locals as well as tourists love this place, give it a go :)
