If you are looking for a pub with some local craft beers, look no further! These guys carry lots of different stuff on tap and a few brews from the local micro breweries as well. During the summer there's outdoor seating as well.

This hidden jewel, next to Lidl Niittykumpu and Fida, is a great place to enjoy afterwork with your colleagues. Decoration is giving you the feeling that you'd walk into an old British Pub. Service was good and prices were average level. This pub maybe bit too hard to find, at least our Uber- taxidriver never found the place. I would... More

Great atmosphere and really amazing selection of drinks. There are not enough good quality bars in Espoo, but the Gallows bird is a nice exception. Highly recommend going there.

Second time here with friends to celebrate start of summer. Plenty of beers, said that they have approximately 250 beers. I liked very much Fat Lizard from Espoo Brewery! It´s tasty and worth of money, small but Fat Lizard 4,5 e.
