Typical british pub atmosphere, tongue in cheek, usual expectation of pub grub, seats at the bar along with tables for groups. A pleasant way to have an inexpensive (for Switzerland) drink & meal

Even though it's very busy we always manage to find a seat. Solid pub food and cider for a reasonable price considering the location. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

This was a nice find again to get back to some roots. Burgers were good, fries good, rings good, and of course american cocktails. They actually had Captain Morgan here, hadn't seen it anywhere in Europe yet. Also they do nachos! Friendly staff, sports on the TV's, and darts in the back.

I went to this pub during a visit to Lucerne, it is close to the Chapel Bridge. It is a short walk from the station (approx 10 mins). I just had a drink, a half pint of beer was CHF 5.50, not close to English prices. Worth a visit. I went to this pub in the past, a bacon roll... More

Overall a great pub. They take credit cards and have darts in the back. Beautiful outside patio area as well, though we did not try their food. Quite pricy, but then again you are in Switzerland.

Quaint old pub in the style of our English pubs. Great atmosphere. Set by the lake and town centre. I enjoyed the atmosphere and would recommend it for a night out.

This would have been a 4 or 5 star review anyway, but after my incredible experience, it's a 10. Great location: alongside the channel (steps from the famous Chapel Bridge) in the heart of town, and a stone's throw from the main transit stop. They have well above average food and a great beer selection. The prices are reasonable, compared... More

Wide range of beers and good service from experienced bar staff. Food is OK - this is a pub not a nice star restaurant! Wonderful location in the summer when you can drink out side by the River Ruess. Inside is so much better now that smoking is not allowed.
