The Barrel British Restaurant

Pub serving food, or restaurant serving drinks? We will go for the former. This good Smardan venue has far more the feel of a pub than anything else, but there is plenty of food on offer. The menu is certainly British inspired, offering fair Fish & Chips, Shepherd’s Pie and jacket spuds amongst much else. They also have Newcastle Brown and Strongbow on offer, but neither on tap. A Union Jack above the bar reminds you of the British connection.

The Barrel British Restaurant Comments

  • My boyfriend and I arrived in Bucharest today and decided to venture into the Old Town in search of a restaurant. Even on a Wednesday night the strip was pumping. We took a punt and decided to try The Barrell. Understanding it was busy we realised it would be a bit of a wait for food but were amazed to see the lack luster service prodvided with our less than appealing meals. The food is something we can ignore but the lack of service we couldn't. After asking one waiter for still water (at 9 45pm it was still 35 degrees) and waiting 15 minutes we were given nothing we asked another waiter and explained we had already asked. We watched him walk over discuss it with another waiter and then watch that same waiter persist to service 2 other tables sets of drinks. In the space of this 30 minutes my boyfriend walked across the road and buy a bottle of water and we also witnessed a gentleman who had been seated and waited to be served leave and also another group of people who had been seated and not receive service leave. The whole experience was disheartening to say the least.
