  1. The Kaledonia Gastro & Sports Pub

  • Overall Rating: 4/5

  • Reviews: This place was right next to our hotel, so it became our “local” for the week. Despite visiting other bars around Budapest, we always ended back here, and always received a wonderfully warm welcome from the blond bar lady (we now know her name, Adri). Nothing was too much trouble, service was swift and very efficient, and the burgers were lovely. they had a certain match on and we were hoping to watch a different game, no problem, they put it on a different tv for us. Highly recommended, with a good mix of expat and locals who were all very friendly

  • Meals: Lunch, Dinner, Late Night, Drinks


2. Sherlock Holmes Pub

  • Overall Rating: 4.5/5

  • Reviews: We were staying nearby and visited on our first night as we didn’t feel like travelling far. The bartender was very friendly and spoke great English. He was helpful when asking for drink recommendations. The prices were very reasonable. The pub is on the small side but cosy and comfortable. The decor is Sherlock Holmes themed, as you’d expect! Perfect place for a couple of quiet drinks and snacks.

    • Features: Serves Alcohol, Seating, Wine and Beer


3. John Bull Sport Pub

  • Overall Rating: 4/5

  • Reviews: English pub two streets from the water, friendly service great selection of beer and wines with terrific pub food, especially club sandwich and chicken schnitzel which was large enough to cover the plate. Fabulous must.
