It’s a glad sight when far away from home to see an Irish bar. Think Irish craic and music. Unfortunately I was to find that my big toe has more Irish charm that this bar. The decor is homely but there really is nutting Oirish...about dis pub.
Food was average - I know vegan is yet to meet these parts but one or two clearly marked options would help improve the menu, which otherwise has a good selection.
Staff were friendly-ish I guess, nothing to get excited about.
There was a local singer on which was a nice touch.
Would call in if I was here again.More
My girlfriend and I were initially scepical of visiting a British pub in Ulan Ude, but when we could find few places to go for a drink in the city centre we turned to this place. Surprisingly, as well as a lot of British imports...and tourist trash they do also have a good selection of local beer. What’s more, the prices are actually pretty affordable at 200 Roubles for most of the beers on tap, or less for the local one. That’s more than average for Ulan Ude prices - but cheaper even than Irkutsk or Vladivostok was still, never mind Moscow or Pitere.
We came for an early drink on our first night, and then left for a while before coming back later. They are open until 2, so we came back at around 00:30 or so. Unfortunately, as he had heard us speaking in English earlier, after taking our drinks order the bartender turned to his colleague, swore loudly, and made a comment about “stupid tourists coming in right before closing.” What he didn’t realise was that my girlfriend is fluent in Russian, and even I speak enough to understans everything he said. We made sure to drink extra slowly and order lots of shots whenever he was nearby, just for him. So don’t expect the welcome from the bar staff to be as warm as it should be, even though the old lady taking coats on the door was very welcoming.
The beer was decent and cheap enough for us to come back a second night though. I really enjoyed the cherry version, though the simple local one for about 160 Roubles was also pretty good. The locals in the pub were surprised to see non-locals never mind non-Russians and kept coming over to talk to us, and they were friendly enough as well.
On our last morning, we came back for breakfast against my desire because my girlfriend wanted to try the English breakfast. The food looked like it would be overpriced tourist crap, and I was not wrong. The “English breakfast” had no beans, no hash browns, and ham instead of bacon. The sausages were Frankfurter hot dog sausages, and it came with potato wedges for some reason. It was about as close to an English breakfast as my shawarma, which was expensive, had barely any meat, and consisted mostly of cabbage and mayo in some tastless mixture. The drinks are good for an evening out, but I would not eat here again.More
I'm not sure if this is a pub, a club or a restaurant, but breakfast there was awesome. It had lots of options, and served English Breakfast.
Sweets and pastries, as well as lunch, looked really good and the service was outstanding, they even helped...us to get a taxi to go to the temple.
I'd love to go back!More
What a nice little place. No one in my group ordered food but seeing what other patrons ordered, I'd give the place a try the next time I'm through.
Nice selection of beer, fun familiar pub atmosphere, but for the number of staff working behind...the bar, it was a little difficult to order a drink. It seemed like one server would take the order, another would fill it.
...obviously the orders did get filled since I was wobbly walking back to my hotel at the end of the night.More
