This pub is a great place to hang out and pass time with friends or to meet new people. There's a good range of beers on tap, friendly staff and locals and they show loads of British sport on tv so it's a good place to catch the action when you're away from home. There's also seating outdoors where you can sit and watch the world go by in the old town. I come back here every time I'm in Lyon.

Wonder around Lyon old town and ran across the Smoking Dog. It was St George's Day so they were all red and white. The place soon filled up with a mixture of English and French all very friendly and up for a fun time.
The price of beer is to too bad at 4 to 6 euros, have a mixture of European and British beer. If you are looking for a relaxed fun place to while away a few hours then here is the place.
Tuesday nights there is a quiz where you can win 100 euros depending on how big the crowd is. Thanks to Gabe and his frends for befriending a Brit in a strange town .. Great night .

Great bar to watch the footy, in a fab location, just off the main square in Vieux. French, British and European beers in great atmosphere.
