Nice pub with British Ales but also plenty of other European brands. Good pub menu, try the Wiener Schnitzel, which is great! Very friendly staff and handy central location opposite the Intercontinental at the Danube river. Enjoyable place!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
