Jernbanen is one of the old pubs in Tromsø. As this has always been a place where locals frequent, this is probably becoming more of exactly that.

Given there isn't a railway within 500 miles of this place the theme is a bit odd. It's a pleasant enough local bar with a good selection of drinks and quite lively at the weekend

This pub shows that someone has got a bit of humour. It's pretending to be the Tromsø Railway Station, though the Norwegian railway never made it this far north. It's even got announcements about trains about to depart.. It's also got a bit of a football theme on the walls.

Maybe the Trip Advisor team think it is a station, but it should be listed with the other bars and restaurants. Nice bar with a good variety of the local Mack beers – all at about 50p... More

Good selection of drinks, a bit cheaper than some other pubs. It looks a bit worn but many pubs do. It seemed to be popular on a Sunday night.
