Pricey drinks but a beautiful, relaxing location. Most important...... Clean bathrooms. :) :) Any woman loves that. Great place to check out for travelers and locals. Lots of history in this little town. Hopefully next time I will be able to try the food.

Great if you want to observe a bunch of English chavs, and their Norwegian equivalent, baying at the large TV screens during a football match - this is the pub for you. Very pleasant bar staff.
