After a long day, sometimes you need a good burger and fries! This is the place for it. Great casual food, friendly staff and right on the main street of Zermatt!

The food was great! The Brown Cow Pub is on our list of places to go when we return to Zermatt! The service was also good and it seemed more local and less touristy.

On the high street, this pub offers up a vast selection of beers and a large menu with many different burger and sandwich options. Burgers are quite tasty with lots of fries and salad to boot. Service is friendly and quick.

We walked by another night during happy hour time and it was too crowded and we had our kids with us so we didn't go in. If you mean happy hour specials like reduced prices during a set couple of hours I'm not sure.
