We ordered some light dishes which shouldn't take more than 10 - 15 minutes to make. After half an hour I asked how much longer we had to wait. It was still over five more minutes before the meals arrived with no explanation of why it took so long. It wasn't as if the pub were crowded, and we were the only one ordering food at that time. The food was good, though; tasty and with larger porsions than I would expect of a "light meal".

Food is just terrible, they never seem to change out the cooking oil, the place reeks old cooking oil.
Where is the outside barbecue in the summer months, the place completely lacks inovasion, or any imagination for that matter.

Glasses are generally very dirty, they even smell.

Previous owners had it pinned down, but that is just a distant memory now, sad but true.

Toilets are also in a terrible state.


Avoid at all cost.

This irish pub is located at the northern-most part og Grünerløkka. The menu has some of the staples of an English pub-menu, and my absolute favourite is the fish'n'chips. My friends often choose the burgers, which they're very happy with.
On thursdays there is a pubquiz which seems to be very popular, so one should arrive early in order to get a table (Mind you, the quiz is held in Norwegian).
...So if you're not so keen on pub quizes but would like to try the food, avoid thursday evenings, as the service is terribly slow due to all the guests.
