If you fancy tiny pubs, good beer and great music the Birtija is your place. The barkeeper was incredibly nice, welcoming and interested, the beer was delicious and instead of just grabbing a pint and heading on, we stayed for a couple more. This place...More

So friendly, good English spoken. Wines, traditional beers, coffee, good music played- jazz covers of popular music with English lyrics for example. Always busy, as it's small, but usually can squeeze on a table- in or outside and watch the world go by (up the...More
