It’s a reasonable sized ‘pub’ a stone’s throw from the central shopping area. It has a good selection of beers and other drinks, and lots of sports screens. Also the staff are friendly. The only downside is a smoking section (everyone’s used to non-smoking bars...More

If you like beer that tastes like wet cat fur or metal flavor then this is the place for you !!! Almost always sold out of Erdinger German beer that they advertise all over the place. The food is greasy and inedible. Disgusting place.

Went to the pub with my girlfriend. It's right next to Sanjo Station. Offers a good selection of beers and other drinks. Smoking as well as non smoking section plus 2 dartboards. Well worth a visit.

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
