This is the bigger of the Pointers bar, great prices for alcohol and food. We visited twice during our stay. Hungarian 3 course set menu was amazing. Only downside is they have footy on TV but no commentary so moved onto somewhere else on 2nd...occasion. Great serviceMore

Visited numerous times during our 4-day stay in Budapest, and quickly became our "go-to-place" to relax and have drinks + eat. Great service, low prices and you get a home-away-from-home feeling just being there. Would go back in a heart beat!

After receiving our food we asked a waitress for another drink then asked for ketchup when she brought the drinks. In response to this we got a sigh and she rolled her eyes and then the ketchup was thrown on the table ! If she...had of provided correct service she would have provided ketchup etc without us having to request it. Following this she went to the bar and stood talking to another staff member. The pub was not busy at this time and we didn’t feel like we had asked for much.. The food was amazing otherwise and service from all other staff was perfect.More

I had the most delicious hamburger and chips here. but the service was slow and very impersonal. We told 2 people that the wifi did not work and both of them indicated that is the case frequently and then walked away. The people on one...side of us were from the UK and on the other side were Americans. I do not know if there were any locals here. The price was ok. The best part was the food. My partner had the fish and chips and he said it was great! If the service were better and if there were wifi avialable, this place would be great.More

Bit like the Wetherspoons in the UK. Cheapish drinks, in an old building with high ceilings. Ladies toilets downstairs. Drinks were good, table service from staff. Didn’t eat here but would recommend for the drinks!

This is hands down the worst breakfast I have ever eaten. Went in thinking because it was an Irish pub and I’m English it may have a bit of a homely feel to the food. I don’t think the pan that they cooked the eggs...in had ever been washed. I don’t understand how you burn and egg but the the yolk is still raw. The toast was not toast but bread that literally tasted like it had been rolled there and then. The only edible thing on the plate was the sausage of which they gave you 1 of. Never ever ever ever ever again. Oh an it was £10. If I could rate less than 0 I would.More
