A great place to stop by, with a seemingly endless list of beers to try, not only from Mack's main brewery but also from Mack's microbrewery and other local microbreweries. There are sampling menus and 3 sizes of beer glasses, so that everyone can enjoy! Great staff! You order, pay, and then take your glass to the table. This is... More

I went to this pub during a visit to Tromso, There was a good selection of beers, but as with other places in Norway, very expensive. There were some high strength beers available but at 70 NOK for a small glass, I did not drink much, well worth a visit, recommended.

There's really nothing to complain about. It's pricey, but that's pub in Norge for you ;) Quality beer, great atmosphere. Love this place!

Stumbled across the 'brewery tap' of the local brewers which had the the finest and longest set of beer taps we've ever seen. Some 30 + beers from the brewer Mack's and other small and craft brewers. Nice atmosphere and good beers(at least what we had was good. British 'style' porter good as was the Christmas beer. We tried several... More

This is the oldest pub in Tromso, and it's just plain funky inside, full of historical character, right down to the giant stuffed standing polar bear....in homage to Norwegian Henri Rudd, who was the king of killing polar bears in the old days. The pub was built in 1928, and appeared to me to be the hangout of locals as... More

We were in Tromso whilst on a cruise from the UK and popped into the Olhallen for a 'liquid lunch' following a visit to the Polaria centre just down the road. What a lovely, dark, cosy and atmospheric place to have a drink and enjoy the lively locals enjoying themselves. A vast selection of beers to choose from, lots of... More

We stopped here in the late afternoon after a tour of the town and found the scene lively and friendly, the beer we had tasty. Too bad we had a limited amount of time; it looks as though it would be a great place for the locals.

Well if you like to try various beers this is the place to go... weirdly it's busier during the day than it is late at night... I managed to try a few of the various beers but would need to be there for a month to get through the full range... Everyone as always in Norway were very friendly and... More

On a visit to Tromso to see the Northern Lights, it seemed a good idea to visit the city's oldest pub - adjacent to Mack's brewery. It is worth a visit with a wide array of beers and lots of history on its walls - even a huge stuffed polar bear! But be prepared to pay - two cans of... More
