New Brit to Zurich

Hi all,

Just settling down into Zurich life, moved from London earlier this month.
So far been enjoying winding down after a busy year, but now wanting to explore a bit more and meet new people.

So where are the good bars for meeting fellow Brits?
What is there to do with free time during the week (I have quite a bit of time to burn between now and new year)?
Anyone know where to buy crumpet rings?

No doubt as I settle more i will be more and more active here.

Hope to see some of you about.

Have a great day.

AS

Hi,

Thanks for the first reply. Got a place in Witikon.

I think I've seen Paddys on the way into town.

Co-ops are getting pretty good with stocking up on the English goods.

Other then that, there are online choices, but be prepared to pay a premium.

Alternatively, Orel Fussli have a small selection of english goods, like marmite for example.

Re: New Brit to Zurich

Anyone here know about rules around brewing ones own British ales?
Figure I've got a spare room to use for something when I don't have guests...

Not sure on rules, but when you find out, would love to sample some if approved
