not just next door. The, er, employees come into the back office sometimes to change their money or something. If you know where to sit the views are quite entertaining.

It's also entertaining to watch some old punter come in through the wrong door, look around, realise he's just in a pub and then walk out.

Hello people,

I know there are many threads on pubs in zurich, but things can change very quickly in the world of gastronomie and I was looking for some up to date advice.

I have visited all of the pubs listed below, but am planning a night out with family and was looking for the locals of zurich to rate the pubs from best to worst. If you can be bothered, then a brief description as to why the are up or down in the ranks. Not been to zurich for a long time so want to make sure i pick the right pub for the perfect evening (will be a friday by the way)

I have listed them in the order that i see them;

1. Paddy Reillys - Great to see practically an all english speaking staff group, sometimes too dark inside though.

2. Oliver Twist - Beautiful pub, but a little too expensive

3. Nelson - Would rate as no. 1 if it wasnt for the (in my opinion) poor selection of beers and 2* service

4. Shamrock - Great beer garden but very few ex-pats

5. McGees - Nice pub, nice prices but a bit out the way

6. Big Ben Niedredorf - Cheekiest staff i have ever met

7. Bonnie Prince - Didnt really feel like a real Scottish pub and could do with a refurbishment.


If you have any more which i have missed, please let me know. I have never been to the second Big Ben pub so havent rated it

Cheers
The other big ben in in kreis 5 is actually alot cleaner and better than the Niederdorf, plus a preferable absence of kilted wannabe Rob Roy MacGregor eastern Europeans...

by the way c'mon the Bhoys

In all fairness, the only one wearing a kilt at Big Ben in Niederdorf is the owner, Egon, who is a total charmer. (And he speaks flawless English, despite having never lived in an English-speaking country; he's Swiss.)
