Excellent bar on the main square in Krakow. We didn’t have any food but it looked very good. Live music playing on our visit & a great atmosphere.

Wonderful and quick service. Menu was great for bigger meals at lunch as well as some small snacks for a few pints. I’d recommend it for those who just want a nice beer in the sun. And try the nachos! The queso is great. The...atmosphere was great and felt just like a proper Irish sports pub.More

Ive been to krakow 8 times abd always visit the bull pub. Staff are very welcoming and accommodating. We came to krakow for 3 nights and spent every night in here and was very relaxing but fun with Karoake. In regards to the price of...drinks they have increased since my last visit in december 2021 but still good value for money. Be careful of the service charge incase if your like me who likes to tip staff as normal. Overall i will still return love it.More

My family always come here it has become our polish local 🥰 Fantastic team, great drinks and a fantastic new menu... the club sandwich is amazing! Karaoke nights are incredibly good fun however if this is not your thing the first part of the pub...has one of the biggest screens I have seen and the pub has all the sport events live for people to watch. I have seen champion league matches to rugby matches. A great place to unwind and enjoy a drink. It is a great place to drop off a dad / husband / boyfriend whilst you go shopping. Everyone wins... you get to shop hassle free and the man in your life gets to have more than one beer, relaxed whilst watching some sport.More

There was 13 of us visiting Krakow for a stag do, and wanted somewhere easy and central to get some lunch. I sent a message on Facebook the day before and they responded quickly with confirmation that they had reserved a table which was useful....Although the actual pub is a bit dated, it is perfect for large groups and in an excellent location, just off the main square. Most of the people in the pub were also on stag do's, so it was a lot of fun. We ordered food which was limited to burgers or pizza, but that was fine for us. Burgers were very nice and also very big, pizza's looked nice as well. The staff were very friendly and we got very quick service. Good choice of beers & drinks at a good price. If you want somewhere quick and easy for a few drinks as part of a big group then this is the place for you!More

Sunday afternoon booze up. Guiness was better than I thought. Spirits a good measure and great atmosphere. Don’t read the negative reviews about people falling downstairs and big groups all drunk. You can get drunk anywhere and fall down stairs. I would imagine they reserve...table for larger groups as the whole pandemic means businesses need to recoup revenue. The two of us asked for a seat and the footy on and they gladly accommodated us. So much that we popped in the next day for some lunch which is no nonsense pub grub.More

Food was nice. Some staff were polite. Fast service. However, after ordering they take away your menu and drinks menu straight after ordering. With this being the first time going to the pub I couldn’t remember what drinks they had. I asked a staff member...for a drinks menu and she seemed to be a little annoyed by the fact I asked for a menu. Rolled her eyes, etc. The lovely couple sat behind us gave us their menu instead. The pub atmosphere is definitely not one for couples, it’s more of party groups. However, if they expect people to go in and eat as couples or a family, they need to tell certain groups of people to tone it down a bit as all you can hear is their terrible singing and watch them fall over the place. Another downside to this pub is the tables are far too close together, once sat down you are then locked in with the table behind you. Whilst in this pub, we witnessed at least 4 different couples come in, they were annoyed about people being too loud and they left.More

Having Eaten/drank in here on our previous visits, myself and husband were looking forward to coming back this bar, unfortunately every time we went in the pub, even though it was less than half full, every single table had reserved on it, no matter what...time of day we went in, we asked the staff of any availability and they sent us to the back area of the pub, yet again less than half full with every table reserved, when i told the waitress it was all reserved in the back area, she was just so uninterested and shrugged, not a very good advert for people visiting, most people like ourselves wont bother anymore, and will try other oubs around the square, that actually let you sit at a table with a smile on their faces.More

As soon as a table is empty they slap a reserved slip on it. If you are there as a couple you have no chance of a seat! They try and reserve more seats for karaoke, where this is is very dangerous (at top of...the stairs). Drunk people dancing and singing will be more likely to fall down the stairs, I caught a guy just before he did. Large groups are more welcome than smaller groups. We managed to get a seat once in 3 visits all because we as a couple joined a larger group. Definitely would not recommend this pubMore

I echo what others have said. You will need to go on their website to see the full menu. However, they have traditional English/Irish Pub style foods. If you go in with that in mind you will be happy.
