Editor's review

Worried about missing the footie while you're on holiday? The English Football Club will have you all sorted. With several plasma TVs and one huge projection screen, chances are, if England (or Ireland, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland) are playing, you can catch the game at the English Football Club. Of course, this cellar pub provides more than just a place to watch sports. With plenty of cold Polish beers on tap, as well as a fully-stocked bar, one could easily spend the better part of a day here.

we are looking to tour Krakow next June (8-12th). Are you able to arrange a couple of games against friendly veteran teams (prefer over 40)? There will be 25+ on tour and we are a thirsty bunch looking for a venue for the Scotland v England game on the Saturday night.

Dave from United Kingdom Reply Jun 16th, 2015

Greetings, would you be able to line us up with a vets team for a game in June 2016 during the euros. Do you have any contact details as we looking to tour once again. In a nutshell beer and footy over a weekend. Many thanks Dave

i know it's a bit early but would just like to know whether you will be showing the ricky hatton fight on Nov 24th as i'm in krakow over that weekend and desperately would need a place to watch it,any information would be greatly appreciated

English Football Club from Poland Reply Aug 28th, 2012

Witam Pana, cieszymy się że zagląda do nas Pan często i atmosfera meczy się podoba, jest Pan jednak pierwszym klientem narzekającym na jakość piwa, jeżeli możemy to zrekompensować to zapraszamy do baru- dostanie Pan od nas po kuflu z każdego rodzaju lanego piwa i z pewnością wybierze Pan jakieś dla siebie. Jeśli chodzi o ceny to zaczynają się one od 7zł za Okocim 0,5l, 7,50zł za Kasztelan Niepasteryzowane oraz 9 zł Carlsberg 0,5l. Z tego co wiem ceny piw w krakowskich knajpach sięgają nawet 16 zł... Wiem również, że znajdzie Pan lokale sprzedające piwa już od 4 zł,ale wszystko warunkuje wysokość czynszu oraz jakość lokalu. Pozdrawiam, Anna Szewczyk

Michael from United States Reply Aug 11th, 2012

Często wpadam do tego pubu oglądać mecze.Atmosfera jest wspaniała.Piwo jest średniej jakości i do tego za drogie.Dlaczego w Warszawie w samym centrum mogą sprzedawać bardzo znanej marki piwo 0,5l za 4zł a u Was nie?

Ricky from United Kingdom Reply Jun 25th, 2012

Great couple of weeks in Krakow for the euros. Great staff, Great beer!

Could not find it ;( ?

Dave from United Kingdom Reply Feb 9th, 2012

Coming over in March, tell the gang to get ready for another leaving night :-) Drinking and watching football in the English bar in Prague centre is not as good as EFC in Krakow. See you soon Szefuncio

Dave from United Kingdom Reply Dec 27th, 2011

Thanks to all my friends in EFC for a great leaving party, especially to Anna and the crew for looking after me for the last two years. I have had many great nights in the bar and probably many more which I can't even remember. I am looking forward to visiting in the near future, keep my seat for me. Dziekuje bardzo Szefuncio

PETER NICHOLS from United Kingdom Reply Dec 4th, 2011

This is a great bar, good location close to the main town square and everything you need for the English sports enthusiast. Also a deceptively large garden. We toured here recently with a veterans football team, Anna and Masa made us all very welcome and greatly added to our Krakow experience. We will return ! thanks to everybody at The English Football Club it was good meeting you,,,The Redland Ramblers VFC

Pete from United Kingdom Reply Aug 25th, 2011

Definitely worth stopping by. Sometimes there's a good crowd here for big games. Always a good option, especially for big groups...

James from United States Reply Jun 16th, 2011

Decent place to catch sports events and have a drink

Steveo from United Kingdom Reply Apr 12th, 2011

We were in Crakow a couple of weeks ago and drank in the British football bar. The bar is great, the atmosphere is great and the bar staff are great, the only bad thing was we lost to England, (football). Will recommend the club to anybody going to Crakow.

Dave from United Kingdom Reply Mar 30th, 2011

Living and working in Krakow most of the time I am a regular in EFC and have made many friends from various countries including the staff at EFC. I have never found any of them to be impolite nitwits, the beer is not watered down,(I witness fresh deliveries on a regular basis and the kegs are never touched until they are put on tap). As for the place been full of pissed up Brits I agree, just like any other good bar in the centre on a weekend. What attracts people to Krakow? friendly polite people like the staff at EFC.

witch's teat from Poland Reply Mar 30th, 2011

Here is a translation of the USA Expat's review: Horrible service! The skinny bartender is a nitwit , a brusque and impolite one! Beer mixed with water, herds of pissed limeys who are worshipped by the staff. The only advantage is the fact that they probably have all the possible sports channels. TOTALLY UNTRUE COMMENT. STAFF ARE ALL POLITE AND FRIENDLY. THE ONE THAT YOU INSULTED IS A REALLY NICE AND FRIENDLY GUY. Maybe if you had looked at the sign before you walked in, you would have realised that the place is FULL OF LIMEYS... Thank you for visiting Cracow.

Mickey from United Kingdom Reply Mar 29th, 2011

Just got back from a stag weekend in Krakow, the city is awesome but the best thing was the atmosphere and friendliness in the English Football Club, Anna and her staff made our weekend really great. There was a mixture of City, United, Leeds and Wales fans on Saturday afternoon to watch the England game, the banter was brilliant, everybody had a great day. Thanks Anna, we will be back again.

Anna EFC from Poland Reply Mar 19th, 2011

Każdy ma prawo do własnej oceny. Jak sama nazwa wskazuje English Football Club to bar często odwiedzany przez Brytyjczyków, Traktujemy ich dobrze- jak wszystkich naszych klientów. Niegrzecznie jest mówić, że barman jest przygłupem- nie zna Pan nikogo z nas.. ale te słowa świadczą tylko o Pana kulturze. Lokal jest klimatyzowany. Żaden chudy barman u nas nie pracuje. Na życzenie podamy nazwę hurtowni zaopatrującej nas w piwo, poświadczą że nie jest chrzczone. Myślę, że ten komentarz to tylko złośliwe słowa kogoś nieżyczliwego albo zazdrosnej konkurencji.

Exp from United States Reply Mar 19th, 2011

Okropna obsługa! Chudy barman nie dość, że jest przygłupem to na dodatek jest opryskliwy i niemiły! Piwo chrzczone, tabuny zalanych angoli, których obsługa traktuje jak półbogów. Brak klimatyzacji. Jedyny plus to fakt, że mają chyba wszystkie sportowe telewizje.

Josh H. from United Kingdom Reply Jan 15th, 2011

Some of my friends and I came here on Saturday night because we were looking for a nice place to watch football. A friend of a friend had referred us to this place. Service was superb! Crowd was mixed and very friendly.We met the owner there and he seemed like a genuinely nice guy who wants to satisfy his customers. We will definitely be visiting this place when we're back next tmie in summer!

John from United Kingdom Reply Nov 23rd, 2010

The English Football Club is situated under ground at 5 Mikolajska Street and is the best place in Krakow for sports fans and music lovers. The club shows live sport on Sky TV and plays music by request. All the staff are English speaking and are very pleasant and friendly. Everybody is made to feel welcome, singles, couples stag and hen parties and drinks are very reasonably priced.

Liverpool Supporter from United Kingdom Reply Sep 25th, 2009

We went to English FC last Saturday to watch West Ham Utd v Liverpool, the place was so busy-we didn't espect so many English wanted to watch football in Cracow!!And I'm glad we found a place like this one!!! There was no free tables but it wasn't a problem for the stuff-they've got a beer garden upstairs so they brought a table and a few chairs from there especially for us! We were impressed... but it wasn't the end. We ordered a couple beers and they were all in frosen glasses. After the match finished we staid for some more drinks cause we liked the atmosphere there. Some other lads from Liverpool staid too. Anna and Lukas took care of us, they turnd on our favourite music so we were all dancing, sisging and drinking Jagerbombs. Had such a good time there, it is definitely the best place in Cracow-for football, for drinking, for having fun. Just go and visit!!! my rating is 10 / 5 !!! We'll be back

David McCartney from United Kingdom Reply Aug 13th, 2009
