Having arrived at the hotel and checked in by 1 pm, we set about a walking tour of the old town, and very impressive it was too. Whilst pausing for hot chocolate and cake, we spotted the Pivovarsky Dum bar in one of our guide books and decided to give it a try. Unlike other reviews, we found the staff very attentive. The atmosphere and setting were both excellent and a busy bar is, invariably, a good bar! We decided to share the 8 x 100 ml beer taster option (accompanied by half a litre of pale beer for me), and this was a big hit. We both went for traditional dishes from the menu, one beef and one pork, accompanied with dumplings, sourkraut, red cabbage and gravy. Inevitably we had another beer! Whilst I wouldn't repeat this food order regularly, both meals did hit the spot and, washed down with the beer, we certainly enjoyed the experience. Czech food, from our limited experience, seems a bit stodgy and the walk home felt somewhat laboured. Nevertheless, when in Prague etc etc.
We both strongly recommend the experience as an excellent introduction into the food and beer menus of this interesting country. The numerous types of beer available suggest that, throughout history, they have spent much more time on brewing than cooking. This is not, of course, a bad thing as long as you embrace this concept. In short, the beer is excellent and the food is hearty - no complaints from us. Tomorrow night I suspect that we will head for an Asian option, washed down with plenty of excellent Czech beer. Pivovarsky Dum isn't necessarily yum yum, but for a modest sum it's a lot of fun. Thumbs up from us.
