Not very crowded, this small pub offers a large choice of good beers ( at least Guiness, Kilkenny). Like all pubs here they also have some food ( French fries, burgers, chicken wings,...). The design makes it looks like a real pub like in Europe :) Enjoy the place and the beer.

I came there for only one beer. It was good, I like the atmosphere of this place. Simple and great. They have different kinds of beer, both bottled and on tap. They are also located on 3 floors (if I'm not mistaken). Recommended

Large drinks menu with traditional Irish, and local drafts and bottles. We ordered fish and chips to share which was good because it was a huge porrion. Only draw back, no malt vinegar.

Great service and good food. This place was the perfect place to unwind, relax and chat with mates. The beer on tap is definitely on the pricey side so keep that in mind when you visit. I have heard that sometimes during the day, the part-timers working there may not be the best bartenders (read: will screw up the pull... More

We visited this bar after a business dinner ...it was a very relaxed and easy place to enjoy a few beers and a plate of chips after a formal business dinner. Great service and a very relaxed atmosphere.

This is a great place. The food was good and the beer was better! The staff is friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong in either the restaurant side or the bar side. Have fun!

I like the atmosphere and the staff was very courteous. The food was good and beer was ok but a little steep. This bar seems to be more of a tourist pub or people who are used to being over charged for food and drinks.

I visted the location in Hannam which I have been to several times before. I usually go there when I'm craving some English food and too lazy to make a trip to some of the other restaurants in Seoul that do a better job. I've never been impressed with the service (but hey that's Asia!) nor have I been impressed... More

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood Profile
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
