The honey dew beer is delicious! Bartenders are fast with the drinks. Prices are resonable. Free WiFi.. a code is texted to your phone for that (unless you don't have coverage in Basel.. then you can't get the code...) closes at midnight. I haven't tried the food- but they have a nice selection.

Thank locomotion11

Hello, Thankyou for your positive review. You have summed up a few of the points that make the pub so popular. We strive to provide an authentic pub experience - the place where people meet. Our guest ales from England are very popular, we have a new one approx. every 2 months. The next one due is in July (Fuller's "Honey Dew"!). We look forward to seeing you again.

I love PW's in BSL - tried Paddy's a couple of times but never felt welcome and on a Friday/Saturday night it's too busy and full of teenie boppers - PW's is my local, love the fact that I can go in and just nod for my drink, brilliant atmosphere when FCB and an EPL team are playing separately. You can expect cricket, footie and rugby when on. Food is what to expect - good stodge pub food - Sunday is great for a hangover cure with a full English brekkie.

This place was packed and noisy on a Saturday night. Good atmosphere, international crowd and lots of fun. Nice choice of beer but I haven't tried their food.
