Good pub for a quick beer or glass of wine. TVs showing sporting events. If you want food it is pretty limited to cheese and meat platters.

We found this pub accidentally on our way back to our hotel and simply had to give it a try. Great decision, it was fun, vibrant and friendly and the beer was excellent. It was a shame for us that we hadn't found this little gem sooner but when next in Beaune we'll be spending some time at The Publican!

Enjoyed a decent beer followed by a lovely glass of wine overlooking the stream. A good mix of clientelle which gave the venue a pleasant buzz

Casual, we had a lovely seat by the stream which we caught at the perfect moment. Without that, a nice place to watch the game.

Little bar just off main town square that serves many beers on tap plus wine and cocktails. Probably good for sports as a few tvs as well

This little gem was our saviour in trying to watch the Rugby World Cup. Very intimate little bar overlooking the stream around town. Has an interesting mix of expat locals and tourists providing a good atmosphere.

Loic is a great host, nothing seems to bother him and he generates a warm and friendly atmosphere that encourages customer interaction. Especially when the Rugby is on! Service is good, and prices moderate. Good wc facilities too!

Great pub and atmosphere. We were there when the rugby was on, a great crowd of all ages. (Super clean and appointed loo). Fabulous range of beers and excellent wine list - if only English bars did such good wines....

Friendly service. Felt extremely comfortable throughout. Unfortunately the small out door terrace overtaken with chain smokers. Shame really as is a great setting. Bit cramped but manageable. Half price Happy Hours on Thursdays from 6.00 PM to 8.00 PM made the visit even better. Beaune unfiltered beer on tap. Interesting.

Thank Gregory R
