I've been here several times over the years. Good solid pub, keeps the level. Good food and great beer. Great atmosphere. I will definitely come back here again while in Banska Bistrica.

Food is ….. ehm …. Awful 😖 I wouldn’t recommend to eat here. Their “double” burger is simply normal meat portion cut in half. Important to note: they don’t offer single burgers over here. The taste was, as my friend noted, comparable to burger at...the train station. (My apologies to all restaurant owners around train stations with amazing burgers) The price was exaggerated….. I guess for the “double” meat portion. Their bread spreads are ugly, almost causing trauma to a human’s appetite. Not worth visiting!More

I came here for dinner with my partner & his daughter. I was amazed when the waitress rudely told us to order. I then asked if I could have an english menu to which she rolled her eyes back & walked off as if i...had insulted her. When she came back with the menu she slammed it on the table & left. When she came back to take our order she had a really bad attitude & basically shouted her questions at us, ie what size beer, what kind of tea etc. Long story short she was the rudest waitress I have ever encountered & I will not come back to this restaurant even though it is in a very beautiful historic building. Shame the evening was let down by this unprofessional miserable girl. When I mentioned to friends who live locally, they knew exactly who i was talking about as soon as i explained what happened, so I'm.not the only one that she is rude to!! She really is a terrible ambassador for such a lovely establishment.More

Nice and quick service, good food and even better beer in the centre of Banska Bystrica! Visited it with friends on our way to Poland.

Our Gate 1 Discovery Tour group of 22 came here first for a beer tasting in the snug pub room. It was amazing! My husband was overwhelmed by the fact that everyone was given 4 different beers served in .3 liter glasses. I do not...like beer, so the staff offered me glasses of red wine. After his 4 glasses, my spouse had to give up. But then, we were escorted into the dining area where everyone was again served unlimited mugs of beer. Thankfully, we also had lunch here, otherwise our group would have floated away! The set-menu lunch began with glasses of non-alcoholic beer that tasted like lemonade. Delicious. Slices of melted cheese covered with a red berry sauce came next. We then had a delicious vegetable soup, followed by tender roast pork and gravy, green beans and rice. A rich date cake covered with powdered sugar topped off the meal. Wow! This is one amazing place!!! My spouse is still talking about the beer tasting and lunch with unlimited glasses of beer.More

Visited this place during long road trip and was not dissapointed - rock classics from speakers and restaurant decor created a soothing atmosphere and made this stop worthwile. Tasty fried cheese and fresh lemonade, then a short walk through very nice small city square nearby...was a relaxing experience we needed.More

Excellent beer and great burgers. The beer and wine came quickly, but the food took forever. One hour 15 for a couple of burgers. Fortunately they were very good burgers. And our waitress did offer us a couple of free drinks for waiting so long....That saved the evening.More

The building is beautiful and the surrounding can't be beat. The food on the other hand- meh. We ordered and watched several groups sat down after we had ordered. After 75 minutes our food still hadn't arrived, even though others who had ordered after us...had been served. The waiter didn't return to our table to offer drinks or an explanation. We finally left after 90 minutes with no food.More
