Was there yesterday and all I can say is do not make my mistake! Such a miserable place, dry beef and far to expensive beer. Bad service. Owner David is not suitable for being an owner and the rude attitude of his is just horrible....More

Visited with work colleagues. Very friendly female bar staff! Made to feel very welcome. Sat outside with our drinks under cover watching the world go by. Great pub to visit.

You need to go to bar to place order for food and drink. Typical pub grub that is good. Nothing exceptional with food. Beer selection is good and served cold. Overall very good and a good place for a quick dinner or lunch in Lund.

I did not try the food here, but had a beer with some colleagues. The pub was quite crowded, and some of the folks there were quite loud... one table of locals sang what I imagine might have been typical Swedish drinking songs. There wasn't...More
