When I visited Reykjavik we had the most fun when out at The English Pub. There was always live music to sing along to and people psyched to sing.

Come on, why would any English visitor go to Iceland and come here? It's about as English as one of those plastic bobby's hats you get up the West End of London. It's expensive, has a boring range of beers and is full of tourists who want to have an 'English Experience'. There are some fantastic Icelandic bars in town so please try them out....

We have been here three times in the last two days the first Friday afternoon when it was fairly quiet and we had a few pints of tuborg Christmas beer. Then again on the night arrived about 10.30 and returned back at the hotel at 4.30am had a great night the live band were great played a big variety of music. Was overwhelmed by the amount of people at the bar at times but I think we were out the night of graduation celebrations so locals were in party mode. I'm sure we will be back again before the end of the trip.

This is a spacious and relaxed pub. However, when football is on, it is great if you love football and overcrowded if you don't!

We have been here every night. It's good value (good for Iceland). If you like football or American football you'll love it. It has 7 screens including 5 supersize screens playing up to 5 different games at once!!! As a Brit it is odd when one team scores and 1/3 of the pub cheers whist the other is quiet. But once you get used to it. It's great. The Icelandics love the UK premier league. Arsenal just scored against a German team and 1/2 the bar erupted - I'm watching FC Barcelona and no one else seems interested I also watched the Pittsburgh
Steelers play last week and the bar was quite busy for that too. The best thing about the bar is the "spin the wheel" 2000ISK roulette style wheel to win up to 8 pints (8 pints would be 8000ISK). We won 8 pints twice in our stay - oddly roulette is illegal in Iceland Great pub. Great atmosphere, great prices
