Visited to eat out one evening. The pub was beautifly decorated for Halloween. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Decided to try the guiness on tap which turned out to be a mistake as it was horrible, possibly the worst I have ever tasted -...it was sharp and bitter and I put it down to experience. The menu looked very comprehensive, if not a little pricy. Unfortunately I the aweful guiness put me off trying the food so we ate elsewhere. The pub itself was very nicely decorated and welcoming but......More

...would one go to a British-style pub in Szeged?! Partly because there’s not much choice. But this is ok. Good service. Edible food and drink. Tacky interior. What more could one wish for?!

I was really disappointed in the quality of the place it became very very bad and the prices dosen't match the quantity nor the quality. And over all you receive the bill with a must pay tips and is written TIP and the amount ....Its really annoying that you are forced to give your money for something which is not good and more than all you are forced to tip. It's even seen that alot of people left the place and it's not as it was in the past. My advise is for the amount you spend there you can enjoy double size for the money with better quality in alot of szeged city restaurants. You can only drink a good environment expensive beer here and then move on.More

Amazing food, friendly service, a little expensive, but worth it. The atmosphere of the restaurant is a real English pub!

the pub looks extraordinarily good. the food, especially the goulash soup, is very good. note 10 for pickles, especially pickled cucumbers. the staff is very friendly, even though we did not have the reservation we were allowed to stay at the bar, an excellent idea....soft drinks, very good food, prices are neither low nor high. instead, the tip is collected on the tax receipt. overall a superlative experience, we will definitely return. keep up the good workMore

Nice looking pub, with ok staff and bellow average food quality. We had beef stew, onion soup, and some plate for 2. Stew was 3/5, soup 4/5 and a plate was 1/5. Meat was shady, and people who had it got stomach problems.

It used to be the number 1 place in town and it still hosts many people in the peak hours. But it seems the owners got tired and the place lacks improvement and fantasy. Please if you read this: hire new managers with fresh ideas.

This was the only place I found in Szeged showing live European football. I walked round a lot of bars before finding this one. There were lots of works Christmas meals going on and the place was very busy. I sat at the bar and...had some beers which were good, I didn't eat here so cannot comment although it looked popular and most plates were empty.More
