Had a few quiet ones here mid-afternoon on a lovely little European swingers getaway... cushty little blowy in the toilets, bit cramped but managed the full 9 yards. Thoroughly recommended for post Lake Bled blues and chit chats about British Colonial Empire misgivings..

Saw a beer I wanted to try on a sign and was hooked! Great beer selection, great atmosphere. Some excellent music playing, skiing on TV and tasty snacks. I wish I had a place like this near where I live...

This was the best place we found to drink in the town, sadly Union Beer is not great so finding a pub that sold stout, porter, IPA and Belgium beers, many on tap was fantastic. If you like real ales, craft ales and Belgium beers look no further.

good drink, good service, locals, nicer than a typical English pub, without the beer sodden smelly carpets but polished wood flooring.

Well,I doubt if Sir William ever visited this glorious drinking palace, though he ought to have done. many times! As a beer connoisseur I appreciated the fine selection offered and have nothing but praise for this, ' the best boozer in town'. Cheers, m'dears .

About 8-10 brands of different domestic and foreign beers, mostly craft. 15% discount on tap beer during afternoon happy hours.

Dropped by to meet a friend and the place lived up to the reputation. Excellent selection of domestic and imported craft beers on tap and in bottles. There's a big TV screen too with Europa League etc games on. Less crammed than some of the places in the pedestrian area.
