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.
