This is a casual eatery that features hamburgers and pizza. There is beer, wine, and cider available to drink and the staff speaks English. They have TVs featuring the latest sporting events and there are board games if you want some competition yourself.

This place has the ambient of a pub, with several dishes and a selection of pizza on offer. They sell local craft beer, not bad. Pizza was a bit too salty, but ok.

Great place for an informal meal. The Lenin statue behind the bar is interesting. Could have done without the painting of a dead polar bear, but it's a bar. :-)
