Editor's review

There are times when only a pint will do, and good old John Bull does the job very nicely on that front. We've seen a fair few themed pubs in various cities around Europe, but this one manages to feel more authentic than most. They may not have pork scratchings just yet, but they do have proper beers on tap as well as Dry Blackthorn for cider aficionados. A decent taste of dear old Blighty!

Not EVERYBODY looking for an Irish/English bar abroad is SOLEY obsessed with such a place. I been out with my new Polish friends here to many authentic Polish places but for things such as football and just the banter you get from people of your own country I do find it nice. Of course you might not be able to hear me....that horse is quite high!

Whats the obsession with trying to find English and Irish pubs when you are on holiday? Why not just stay at home if thats what you want and save yourself the cost of a flight and a hotel.

Cant believe all the reviews from people from the UK going on about how they feel at home in the John Bull Pub,the whole point of visiting a new city is to forget about home,get a life

It's okay but I agree with you T, if you are going abroad, experience the life. I'd you want traditional English pub, stay at home.

great place, been to wroclaw 3 times and went in john bull everyday, nice to sit outside and watch the world go bye but at the same time when your missing home, sitting inside gives you a sence of solace. havent seen any cider there during the three years iv been going, but i love a good strongbow! lech/zywiec, whatever they got on tap is always a good pint and seems to keep its life longer than the other piffle you find in the other bars. there is a tv but theres no pool table or dart board! ha ha ha

Top place, we have been to the John over 25 times now and its a good starting point for a few hard pints.

kind of dingy, but i guess it has its own charm...

beanie from United States Reply Jul 28th, 2009

nice pub, but of course not authentic at all :)

Ian from United Kingdom Reply Jan 16th, 2009

They do have a TV and showed football when I was there.

bcfc from United Kingdom Reply Aug 6th, 2008

not only don't they have pork scratchins, more importantly they don't have a tv, which is a big oversight if you're marketing yourself aas the brit pub abroad. as for blackthorn being the stuff of affiicionados, i can only imagine your writer doesn't know much - taunton trad, thatchers etc, they're the biz, not some fizzy crap that gets sold to after-school kids! behave and get thee to bristol

Great location - they have a great view for the Solny Square, large outside garden! We met some Americans there and we spent the whole weekend together in Wroclaw. Good place to start your tour through Wroclaw!

If this is your preferred choice of hostelry when there is a phalanx of more welcoming and imaginative opportunities literally footsteps away you're better off heading to Magaluf, where 'Gutbuster' all-day cooked breakfasts and Union Jack-festooned clubs with obligatory red telephone booths will satiate your lack of cultural wanderlust.

Wrokid from United Kingdom Reply Sep 25th, 2006

Good if you're an English ex-pat looking for a taste of home but if you're a tourist i'd recommend trying something a bit more Polski stylee - there's tonnes of bars on the Rynek and in Pasaz Niepolda

Brett 'aint gettin on no plane fool' Hea from United Kingdom Reply Aug 22nd, 2006

Great!! Sit outside and watch the world go by. Even the tramp was friendly. Good service and insistant on bring the drinks to us. Many a hour lost here. Friendly barstaff. Rich touched me up
