We came here with friends to watch the Manchester United's game. We are very big fans of this FC, so we are supporting it during the whole season. Before the game we were seeking for the place to watch the game and we found this one. Administrator told us that this is a pub with English traditions and they have a wide screen to watch the game. So we supposed to like this place, but...we were not allowed to sing our chants! The administration always told us to be quiet and sometimes even in a rude form. I didn't like this place at all.

Good service, great range of beers on tap and friendly, efficient service. Good range of screens for live sports events, including UK football. A couple more veggie options on the menu would be nice!

While the food was great and the beer was cold, this joint was full of smoke. More so than normal.
I had a really nice curry, the staff were really good and plenty of soccer on TV
Nice place but I could not enjoy it with the smoke

The pub is on the ground floor of a large apartment complex; a fairly souless place.

The staff are generally good to very good.

The other customers are largely expat's watching football and playing cards.

Food: typical pub grub at London prices.

Nothing really noteworthy, if you feel the need for a mock pub while in Almaty this may be the place for you.
