Nice décor, choice of beer and happy hour. The salad was average despite the size of it. The burger was moist and tasty, unfortunately the fries were dried and hard as if they had been refried just before serving. Stick to the drinks.

The Nelson is close to Banhofstrasse and the station, so I’ve used it as a last drink before leaving the city on a few occasions. Like many English style pubs outside the UK it’s not quite the same, but it is a warm place with...More

Popped in for a pint before making our way home. This is a lovely nautically themed pub with a limited selection of real British / Irish beer available. Shame about the live sport available on a multitude of screens which somewhat detracts from holding private...More

One of the few places showing premier league football in zurich. Unfortunately the food is terrible. We ordered nachos which weren't cooked in any way, tasting like store bought tortilla chips with ready made salsa. The price was extortionate for something so simple. Avoid the...More

We are sorry you had a bad experience with the nachos plate in our pub. The nachos are one of our best selling dishes. We always serve them this way. What do you mean by cooking? We escalope the nachos to ensure that the cheese...More

I never take the time to write a poor review, but this place deserves it. I understand Zurich is an expensive city. However the quality of the beers, and the disgusting burger and chips we got here are as low as I've had anywhere. Avoid...More
