The English Pub is a good place to stop for a drink or a bite to eat. It is centrally located in downtown Reykjavik and is near a variety of other spots for site seeing and shopping.

My wife and I popped in here to get a quick drink but wound up staying for a couple more...really friendly staff and a nice, warm vibe - it was early in the evening and I have a sense things get more raucous later on,...More

Spending an evening in Reykjavík, wanting to try local beer. Would normally avoid a pub with English in its name but this place was great with decent beer. Went back the following day.

They don't serve food, but they have a great bar menu and big TVs. We had a terrific time watching the World Cup.

Just sitting outside on the park with a cold pint listening to the Stones. Beautiful day and nice pub. It doesn’t get better than this.

Really the pub is unremarkable. Except for the fact that it is a good ole comfortable familiar English Pub, which are always a welcome spot. Traditional English pub fare for sure. Fish and chips and a pint, what could be better.

Not too many places in Reykjavik to sit outside and enjoy a cold brew. This is one of the good ones close to the centre. Normally quite full all year around and the limited but good outdoor seating is a popular venue.
