Wasn’t a bad little pub in Kyoto. Was disappointed that my student wife didn’t get the student or ladies discount (on a Wednesday), but so it goes. Decent beer selection and service.More

Hello! Thank you very much for visiting our pub during your stay in Kyoto! We are very sorry for making an error with our discounts, which probably resulted from human error. We definitely did not mean to withhold any discounts. We make sure to train...More

Does look like an English Pub but a very dirty grimy one. Would not recommend. A bit of a dive really with absolutely no atmosphere. Needs a good clean and a new menu.

Give this pub a miss. It is dirty, disorganised, tired and expensive. We tried to get a pint a few nights ago and the staff were so disorganised they only had half the serving counter open. There was a guy shouting about serving beer fron...a cool box. He was cocky and very iritating. Because we couldn't get a pint we went back the next night. it was much quieter but the staff were still disorganised. The tables were un cleared the shelves were dirty. The light fitting and light bulbs were broken. I could go on! It is grim and bears no resemblance to a British pub. It is an embarrassment Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else.More

British feel pub playing World Cup match’s. Ideal for visitors looking to catch the games as there is no fan zone. Reasonably priced, food expensive

Awesome night, great atmosphere! Staff had excellent English, and still had good service and attitude after I pointed out the staff mistake in my charge for drinks. Happily would come again. Met some awesome other New Zealanders at the pub!

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
