Stopped here for a few pints and to watch the Wales / Finland game which they didn’t show! You can’t order at the bar (It’s a pub for Heaven’s sake!) so have to await someone to come along and take your order for which you...pay over the odds for and a service charge to boot!More

Came to watch the champions League. They put the game I wanted to see on Infront of me which was nice but what made this 5 star rating was Doro the waitress she was so kind from the very start. She looked after us so...well and she even went through the effort of writing a list for places for us to visit for the rest of our trip. She is honestly the reason why I will be comming back for another drink.More

Avoid this place. We went in there yesterday (15th Feb) because there was a happy hour. The place smells unpleasant. And when I queried the bill afterwards, the manager was very rude. And he was also extremely rude to my partner, who couldn't stay there...a moment longer. We thought it might be like an English pub, but it wasn't. Stay away! https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g274887-d10083574-r938478893-Pointer_Pub_Restaurant_Vaci_u-Budapest_Central_Hungary.html#More

We called in here for a couple of drinks during 'Happy Hour'...This establishment couldn't 'do' Happy Hour if they tried! The bar manager was nothing short of rude and arrogant towards me, with NO justification WHATSOEVER! I returned from visiting the toilet facilities only to...be met by him, throwing both fists down onto the table where I had literally just returned to my seat, leaning directly towards me and into my personal space, and bellowing in my face, in an extremely hostile and aggressive manner, "What's your problem?!" To which I responded, "Excuse me? I don't know what you're talking about!" It turns out that another (male) customer had questioned his bill, (we had yet to settle our bill) yet this complete idiot of a bar manager decided it was okay to approach, shout at, intimidate and publicly humiliate a respectable, anxiety-suffering, middle-aged female customer (who was completely sober) in this way! An apology would have been appropriate, given the fact that this idiot had made a very HUGE error and had jumped at me all guns blazing! So rude and offensive! Anyone who's thinking of visiting Budapest, avoid any of the Pointer chain of pubs like the plague - the only good thing about this establishment was the music they played!More

There are several Pointer Pubs throughout Budapest and on our weeks holiday in this vibrant city we visited them all ,this one located on Vaci Utca is a real favourite of mine. A great looking pub, interior is superb, main room dominated by a very...eye catching serving bar, pubby decor and furnishings, vintage beer enamels adorning the walls, high ceilings,chandeliers, big screens to enjoy the sport and plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub, its just a really good pub to unwind in. We got here about 3pm on a cold November Tuesday afternoon, pub was packed with a great atmosphere, we luckily managed to get a table were a very pleasant member of staff took our order of a beer each ( hunters gold lager ) these were served in excellent condition being iced cold and sparkling and as an added bonus on the happy hour ( 2pm till 4pm ) but then again any hour I'm sipping a pint of beer is happy hour for me,we chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this busy and popular pub. My beer was excellent, a light, hoppy and unpretentious lager style beer bursting with taste and very easy to drink especially when served iced cold as in this pub, it was just so good being in such a lovely pub enjoying a quality brew and being in such a lovely city. We both really enjoyed our beers in here before we moved on and although our visit was only fleeting as on every other visit to this particular Pointer Pub we had a great beer experience. This Pointer Pub is easy to locate along Vaci Utca . Opening hours are; Monday to Thursday, midday till midnight. Friday & Saturday, midday till 2am. Sunday, midday till midnight. Well worth checking out if you're in the area.More

Pointer Pub&Restaurant on Vácì Útca is an excellent British style pub that offers a very good food and drink range and was one of the six Pointer pub's that we went to on our trip to Budapest.This is a fantastic pub that has a British...pub look and feel with brilliant fixtures and features and fantastic seating options throughout the whole pubs interior and excellent staff who make you feel very welcome. Of the six Pointer pub's we went to this one was the busiest as when we visited here we had to wait a while to get served which was understandable as it was very busy.On our visit we had a few pints of Hunters Gold an excellent house beer which were served in perfect condition and where well priced as we got these beers on the Happy Hour.The Happy Hour in here is between 14.00-16.00 hours. This is a superb Pointer pub that's in a very good area of Budapest and is well worth a visit and very easy to get to from Ferenciek Tere M bus or metro stop it's a few minute's walk. (This is my 1st review of the Pointer Pub and Restaurant on Vácì Útca). Opening Hours. Monday-Thursday-12.00-00.00. Friday-Saturday-12.00-02.00. Sunday-12.00-00.00. Public Transport. Bus Stop.

First of all the staff was really rude they never said thank you or smiled. Secondly, I ordered a “Diavola pizza”, from the first look I understood it was a frozen pizza maybe from a supermarket and my friends ordered burgers. All the beefs were...frozen too and the French fries! I don’t recommend anyone to visit this place and the prices are too expensive depending the quality of the food. Our experience was unsatisfying on the maximum level!More

Terrible service. The waiter made us pay for the drinks in advance, before they even came out, and there was no option to pay separately. He as well charged us for the service. I mean what a poorly and unprofessional, terrible aspect of hospitality.

This is one of several Pointer pubs in BP. It's right by one of the main bridges so is slap bang in the middle of tourist land. A pint of Dreher (local lager) cost £5.40, and G&T was £8.20 including the mandatory 14% tip. Twice...as much as most places!More
