Sir Winston is a classic English-style pub, centrally located on Karl Johan Street 10, right next to Oslo Cathedral. Since the opening in 1968 we have focused on nice atmosphere, great service and a wide selection of drinks. We are open seven days a week, and with a heated outdoor seating you can enjoy a double latte or a beer while watching people passing by on Oslos main street.

The Pianoman on Friday an Saturday is BRILLIANT: Omg his shaggy preformence are just the best. Great entertaiment and a good laugh with the sing-a-long. Some people tends to be a bit drunk and as a girl they can be a bit "in your face". But there are guards around the entrence to help

I think a few tourists get here cause of the location. Close to the train station. But it's an ok place to take a few beers before rocking on to another pub.

Having said that it never felt too busy and was very comfortable with numerous couches and other seats. There was a large choice of beers to chose from and the barmans recommendation hit the spot.
