This place has all of the trappings of an English pub. The wooden decor and pictures on the wall all look British, but in terms of being a pub that pours actual British ales, not so much. What you find on tap is an array...More

Stopped in for a drink or two. Watched several people spin the wheel to test their "fate". Eventually, someone spun and it landed on 8 free beers. This place is next door to the American bar. The two places couldn't be more different. It was...More

We had heard good things about this place and when we showed up at around 11pm on a Sunday night we weren't disappointed. There was a British duo playing live music (American and British) and the bartenders and patrons were great company. There is a...More

This ended up being our go to Pub. Although they do not serve food, there are places on the same block that you can eat. They have a great selection of Icelandic beer on tap and the bartenders are very personable.

I didn't really care for this place but I think it was more due to the patrons (bit pretentious) than the actual bar. They have a nice layout and large bar. The decor is nice and the staff was friendly. They have a lot of...More

A very busy pub and on a beautiful day, a good place to sit out and have a drink. Whilst I am slightly embarrassed that we went to an English Pub on holiday in Iceland, it isn't really an English Pub! Decent lively pub and...More

Great beers and great crowd for watching football (soccer)!! Several games are always on their big screens, so you can catch your team if it is playing. Boisterous, but not rowdy crowd during big matches.
