Situated in the hystorical (and a bit spiritual for a local beer geek/addict) place - previously there was a legendary Soviet Union watering hole over here: the four-ale bar "Ladja" ("Rowing boat"), better known as "The Pit" nickname, given to it by locals (the first...ever beer vending machines in SU were installed here, it was a place of shooting location of the film, which now is the classic part of Mosfilm Golden Era, etc). The T&P, being the successor of the quarters was the first big one in nowadays pub big chain "Pub Life Group". The inner interior was kept as the brickly furnished cellar as a relation to traditional drinking places of the Russian medieval ages, but with a bit renovation with globally acknowledged traditional signs of an irish bar - newly wood bar counter & furniture, cash register/service points islands, barrel-crafted wall decorations, Tiffany-style fuzed lights, stained glass artworks, brewery branded bar mirrors ans so. All performed in right propotions for getting a fall between two stools: be attractive for an old social drinkers by a feeling of the similar "wild but nifty" atmosphere which has been prevailed in it's predecessor, and be comfy & familiant for newcomers (whatever from part of the world), conversant with the conception of "home away from home, but with no drinking control". The choice of alcohol and snacks are usial for that chain - well-recognized, simple and substantial, guarantied availability of the several positions both for drinks and for dishes. Good place both for standalone drinking or a meeting with someone/gatherhing of the boozing companions, in either case you don't need to speak/scream loader even on Fridays or any other big populated day.More

Wonderful place with very old brick walls in the centre of Moscow. Perfect cold beer. Steaks are nicely done. Service is fast. On the day of our visit the waitress dropped some cutlery and dishes and didn't appologise. But the rest was wonderful. Music is...fine.More

I popped in to enjoy a beer whilst watching the English football on a Saturday afternoon. It was very quiet (so not much atmosphere) but I cannot complain about the ribs or draught beer. I will be back.

1st the waiter forgot my order, but that’s okay, happens to everyone once in a while even with an empty house. 2nd not a single apology for the act of forgetting the order or a special attention to please the costumer in that direction 3rd...I asked for a grilled vegetables garnish and for 275 rubles +\- $4,5 the best they can serve is a half of tomato, 3 onion peel and 1 mushroom 4th my girlfriend asked for a tuna salad with exactly 4 small pieces of tuna and 5 rúcula leaves for the price of 650 rubles +\- $10 it’s a geme and premium place hidden in a basement to never come backMore

Very good selection of beers and drinks and great atmosphere but horrible pint of Guinness. Disappointed considering the pub is aiming itself at this completely.

Liked this place. Irish interior, tasty beers and burgers - all things you desire at Friday evening. Bar has average prices and location right in the center of Moscow.

An attempt at an English style pub, whatever that is? Bigger than one would expect when entering, and has a reasonable selection of beers and typical bar food.

I’ve been to this place several times with my friends. It’s big and usually you can easily find a table. It’s situated in the very center of Moscow and it’s a decent pub with plenty of beers and various - considering pubs - meals in...the menu. Staff is quick and well trained. For spots events it’s a nice place as well stuffed with a dozen of TVs having even a huge one in the center. Good place for a good evening.More

This place is nice, you must have address or pay attention on the street because the entrance is very simple and small. After you pass the door you will downstairs and a really nice place will be revealed. The menu is limited but all food...is prepared fast and tasty. The beer is cold and the team is amazing.More

I really liked this place to watch the matches during my visit for the World Cup but I was saddened by what I can only deem as taking advantage of visitors. While camped out at the bar, I would pay in cash for each beer...but my change (the difference to the nearest 100 ruble part) was never returned. I didn't make a big issue of it but I did see this happening to other people too. As tourists that don't speak Russian, we probably just let it go as it is not worth the verbal discussion if both parties are not speaking relevant terms. I did observe in my 5 hours at the bar that the locals all paid with Credit Card. Maybe they know. Either way, this left me with a less than stellar impression of otherwise what is a cool place to watch matches. I read another review on TripAdvisor from May stating the similar thing with the change. Either this is an intentional ploy or the bar staff can't be bothered - regardless, it is very disappointing. On a side note: when I was not sitting at the bar, the waitress was nice and my check was returned with the proper change.More
