There are very few places to get cask ale in Denmark, and this is the crown jewel of the bunch. Small but cozy, great service and small talk, friendly atmos, and a wide and ever changing selection of cask ales, selected for their harmony and quality by the knowledgeable British owner. The bar also offers carbonated specialty beers on tap... More

Was advised by a friend that Charlie's bar is well worth a visit, and he was right. A good selection of English ales, well kept and in good condition; complimented by a selection of Danish and European beers. The staff are well trained, polite and know their beers. If you like ale, strongly suggest a visit.

English pub atmosphere with great real ales. A real gem. Only draw back is it's so small! Won't put us off coming again next time we are here.

Still one of the best beer palaces in Copenhagen, but I was very disappointed to learn that a staple, Schneider's Aventinus on tap (only place in Denmark) had been cancelled. Not wise. Well, Charlie's still rule.

If you like your beer with taste - this is the place to go. Serves draft beer from UK and other places. Small and cosy room.

This is a charming pub offering a mix of British beers and Danish. There are traditional British hand pumps and a good selection of over a dozen beers. We had the Thylinfords Porter and a Rev.James from Wales. Traditional pub snacks also on sale.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
