After getting a little annoyed by bar service in ruin bars we headed home... and found Pointers Pub on the way back. We'd probably have walked straight past any other time but really wanted one last drink and gave it a go. It was one...of the best drink venues we visited. It's feel like an English pub, with traditional bar, pub tables & chairs and random "junk" plastered on the walls - we felt at home. The service was really good - it was the only venue we visited that evening where every member of staff greeted us. Prices are reasonable - can't comment on food standard but can tell any Englishmen craving a shepherds pie that it features on the menu here. For reasonably priced drinks and great service pop-in to Pointers.More

We found this pub by chance, and were we lucky! All the restaurants on the shopping strip in Budapest are pretty much-overpriced tourist traps. This place was only a stone's throw away from the main shopping strip, and was absolutely magnificent! Our server, Iby, was...just fantastic. Our meals were so delicious...we tried the local "Paprika Chicken", which was served with some of the best homemade pasta. When we asked about the dish, our server explained exactly how the chef prepared it and even described how lengthy the process was. I highly recommend this pub if visiting Budapest!!! Skip the touristy restaurants, and go a more local feel with the most delectable menu choices!!! There's a great casual vibe and the staff is just remarkable and fabulous!!!More

The waitress wasnt so kind, Margaritha pizza doesnt have any special taste, the only good thing was cheese on pizza with 4 types of cheese. I would not come again.

Had already visited another Pointer pub. Didn’t realise there was another until finding this one! Had been to the one on Vaci Utca which is quite a bit bigger. Drinks are priced the same. Good atmosphere. Only giving 3 stars due to the lack of...toilet paper in the ladies toiletMore

This has been our fourth visit to Budapest, three of them staying at the hotel opposite the pointer pub. Our past experience of the pub as always been very good, staff so friendly and chatty with a lively atmosphere. This visit I have to say...was almost as good apart from one gentleman who’s manner was totally surly and rude, never had a smile on his face and I overheard another customer as they were leaving they would not be returning as this young man had upset them by being offensive by his manner. I later found out this was the manager.More

4 days in Budapest..we were in here 7 times as our hotel was 2 mins away...drinks were fine, my wife had a few Mojitos and apart from 1 being terrible (won't shame the male staff member), she said they were very good..my beers were ok,...not amazing..wine was also a bit warm sometimes...staff were great, and you could talk to them no problem..we had dinner 1 time and it said sirloin steak, which was a rump but the chips and mushrooms were great, sauce a bit thin...my wife's duck was over cooked (works in catering for 27 years) and no cabbage on the plate which was advertised..pity because although it's a small place i actually like it...they show the football/sports but no sound....also is a thing in Bratislava, no sound but the game is on..with music playing...weirdMore

We noticed this bar in the taxi on the way to our hotel. It was getting late and it was cold so we decided to dump our bags at the hotel and walk the short distance here. The staff greeted us enthusiasticly and spoke brilliant...English. We both got pizzas and I must say they were brilliant. The choice of gins and the Bombardier English Ale at good prices was definitely a plus and we came back on other occasions. The only reason it wasn't a five star was the journey downstairs to the toilets. A recommended bar thoughMore

Enjoyed going there again, again and again. For a beer post dinner or some gins. Prices are good and service is quite good as well.
