Visited with a friend after a longish day out. It has a nice English pub-like atmosphere, though the selection of beers and foods is more geographically spread out.

Great place for a snack and a beer on a Friday night with English speaking Expats or to meet other English speaking expats. Food is typical pub food but below standard of English pubs.

For lunch all I wanted was something simple and fried, nothing fancy which is all too common in Zug. A friend suggested this place. I am amazed I never walked by it before but I will now visit every time I am in Zug. As for the location it is just as one exits the main train station, on the... More

Love the Pickwick Pub. It is centrally located close to the train station and very lose to the old town of Zug. It serves great hamburgers and traditional fish and chips. After 8pm you need to be over 18 but before that you can also take your family.

It was not a busy lunch time this visit, but we had only come in for a drink on our tour of all the Pickwick Pubs in Switzerland. But ended up having lunch there as the specials board captured us.

Mr Pickwick is a proper pub, the publican has striven to make it the closest you can get to the British pub culture roots. It has TV broadcasts of sport, usually football, snooker etc, a wide range of beers, stouts and ales (the Guiness is good) and sits in the west bus terminus area outside the Zug railway station.

Great ex pat pub in Zug. This is where most Ex pats hang out. The land lord introduced himself which was good as we were new to the area. Dog friendly which is very helpful. The food is very good, considering its a pub. lots to choose from and they will adapt whatever you want. Thank you
