We were looking for a cheap place to have lunch and ended up at this pub. The place really reminded me of authentic Scottish pub which was cool and the barman was friendly but to be honest we did not enjoy our time there. The beers were flat and when our burgers arrived they were cold, it seemed like they... More

Looking for a place to catch the Detroit Lion's football game on Thanksgiving... this place had it! Plenty of seating to walk in and sit down. Decent selection of beers. Went with the bacon burger, which was average. Sweet Potato fries were awesome. Good atmosphere. Worth it to be able to watch American football!

Actually I really like this pub. So I came here almost every week in recent months. The pub is cozy, I like the selection of meals and drinks and the staff is basically friendly (and they are doing a good job). But sad to say that there is one staff member whose attitude falls beyond the pale. Over the past... More

Dear iamlukem Many thanks for your feedback. I have received a number of reports concerning a member of staff in the last few days and the Manager has spoken to him and the person concerned has decided it is best to leave. This may sound harsh but the decision was mutual. We are working in the people business and our... More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, authentic-looking inside, intimate yard at back, great for live sports...but...the food wasn't up to scratch. I had fish and chips. The portion was way too small and the price was way too high...and they forgot the mushy peas!

After checking out a number of restaurants in Zurich, and being on a budget, we came upon Oliver Twist, an English and Irish pub with all the decor that goes with it.it also had very nice pub food at a reasonable price so it was a winner for us:)

This pub is no different to what you find anywhere in the UK. A selection of hand pulled British beers with Sky sports on numerous TVs. It has a small beer garden and the men is typical pub grub. The only downside is the prices but that is the same all over Zurich.

Good place to spend a few hours while having a couple of pints, and maybe something to eat like we did. The staff was nice, and the outside seating area is cute. Prices are a bit on the higher side, but that's Zurich (and Switzerland) for you. 9 CHF for a pint of London Pride, between 20 and 30 for... More

Decent pub with a great quizz on mondays. Always a good place to stop by for a pint. Also recommended for sports, especially Rugby and Soccer.

Really social little bar off the bested track near Paradeplatz. If it's 23:00 and you feel the night is still young and most places are closing then head here for a relaxed few before you call time.
