The English Pub, Reykjavík Iceland – Save water, drink beer!

The English Pub is the hottest sports bar on the frozen rock in the N-Atlantic ocean with live music every night and showing all major sport events on big HD screens. Check out the schedule for this month here. The English Pub is located in the city center facing the Parliament of Iceland. For years, Iceland has enjoyed a diverse selection of restaurants and often sophisticated bars.

However, one tiny grumble occasionally surfaced from the country’s Anglophiles – simply that there was no proper “pub”. And so the English Pub was born. The English Pub has one of the best selection of beer and whiskey in Iceland. Guests can try 35 brands of beer and 35 brands of whisky. Have a look at our whisky menu here.

From modest beginnings it has built a hearty reputation, seeking out, with the advice and guidance of its dedicated customers, the finest ale available to mankind. Today it offers its enthusiastic clients the chance to taste great beers from around the world, including 15 Icelandic brands. Have a look at our beer menu here.
