Several generations of Japanese locals, expats, and foreign travelers have spent a convivial evening at this English-style pub, a Kyoto mainstay since 1985. It attracts a mostly older crowd early in the evening followed by younger patrons later in the night, who come for its 10 different beers on tap, 60 single-malt whiskies, free Wi-Fi, a darts corner, foosball table, TVs showing sports from around the world, bar food ranging from fish and chips to minced meat pie, and happy hour weekdays to 8pm. There are also weekly specials, like discounts for foreigners on Tuesdays and for ladies on Wednesday.
