Gastropub

“Not exactly a brewery. It's a pub. It's got a great collection of spirits, and they have the local beer Bierbrier. English and English-inspired food and a great atmosphere - basically I try not to go here very often because I never want it to become 'the corner bar' or too pedestrian, when it's really within 300 m of home. On football or other championship days, they'll open the screens for people to watch the games, but they decidedly are NOT a sports bar where the screens are tuned 24/7 to something that distracts you from your friends and the people around you.”

I would recommend you walk down the cross street St Sulpice to SSENSE cafe ( 5th floor ) for a UNIQUE coffee shop designed by renowned architect David Chipperfield or walk a little further down to hotel William gray for a meal or a classic Italian coffee shop now also running through them called Olympico. ”
