Staying in Luzerne as a couple in November we decided to have a pub grub meal with local ales rather than have yet another 3 course restaurant meal. The Pickwick menu was excellent and offered good value and cones highly recommended.

If you're looking for an English speaking pub that's probably playing British sports on tv, this is your place. They have decent burgers and some British food as well like fish and chips. You can sit outside along the river in a great location, or you can sit inside.

It is a cozy pub beside the Lucerne lake and beginning of Lucerne old city. I loved it's ambiance ,wooden design and delicious food. The location is perfect, especially when you step out and want to smoke, it will be enjoyable with a amazing view of lake and bridge.

Great food, friendly staff and good atmosphere! Recommended! Lovely view of the river and bridge, if the weather is good sit outside and enjoy this view. If the weather is poor sit inside where you are made to feel at home!

The location of the pub is the pull factor. It is strategically located at a busy corner close to the bridge. Had a beer and shared a table with another couple outside the pub. This was good as you could sit back and have your beer and watch the other tourists go about their business of taking photos and selfies.I... More

On the nail. Right layout, right atmosphere, mix of British & Swiss beers (on tap) and proper pub grub. English spoken well and plenty of TV sport. Only question is "why leave home?" Answer, everyone needs a break from all this travel eventually. Outside table give good views apart from the hordes of far eastern tourists who seem to have... More
