  1. The Cardinal, Stavanger

    A true Oasis in the middle of Stavanger, Norway. Vast range of the best bottled beers from around the world. We even found beers from Skinners and St. Austell on sale. They boast a cellar with more than a 1000 beers in stock at any one time. They also have taps for some of the local and Scandinavian beers (lagers?).
    Very lively, very friendly and of course everyone speaks English better than many first language speakers.

  2. Nijmegen Bars- NXP Semiconductors
    Nijmegen has a couple of Irish bars, The Shamrock and Absolute Zero, the only clue to the latters Irishness is the tricolour hanging outside the building. It is located next door to the sex shop on Van Welderenstraat.
    There are some great Dutch bars in the city, The Tempelier on Moelenstraat-really friendly staff, De Blauwe Hand, Achter De Hoofdwacht 3-great selection of beer and a quirky interior, Cafe Funkenstein, Lange Hezelstraat-Great food, try the triple funky burger if you can manage it! De Hemel, Commanderie Van St Jan. This place brews it’s own beer, has a nice courtyard garden and does food as well.
    The Waalkade, has lots of bars and restaurants and a great view of the river Waal and all the traffic on it.
    Dutch chip shops are worth a look as well, although they don’t sell fried fish-mainly deep fried meatballs and croquettes with various fillings. There is a good one on the corner of In de Betouwstraat in the centre, The Shamrock doesn’t mind you taking your chips in there to eat as well-it’s only about 50 metres away.
    The India Gate is a good curry house in Moelenstraat, right opposite The Tempelier. It gives any curry house in the UK a run for it’s money. Their dishes stray into the hotter side of things, I would order a main one down from what you usually eat.

  3. When in Dresden try
    Brauhaus am Waldschlösschen
    Am Brauhaus 8b
    01099 Dresden
    Old style beer hall just on the outskirts of Dresden. In the summer sit outside overlooking the Elbe.

  4. Blink and you will miss it ! Delaney’s in Kowloon is a great haven for all ex-pats looking for a more traditional night out in Hong Kong but with the entrance only a small door heading down into the dungeons you can easily walk right past it. With Guinness, Kilkenny, Tetley and Strongbow all on-tap, its the place to go for a plate of McDonaghs fish and chips or spicy chicken drumsticks while catching up on the Premiership, rugby, cricket or F1 motor racing. Good atmosphere and reasonably priced with pleasant bar staff.
    Basement, Mary Building
    77 Peking Road, TST, Kowloon

  5. Here is a great place to get your football fix – they cover all the major Premiership games and will stay open past 3am if need be!
    Beer is standard fair both continental and local beers. What makes this place though is the staff. They are very friendly so if you find yourself bored or alone on business in Taipei head here, sit at the bar and play cards with bar staff, or talk Football with Roxana (but I warn you she is a fanatic Chelsea fan)
    Address: No. 114- 116, Anho Road, Section 2, Taipei, Taiwan

  6. Beshoff Restaurant
    Traditional Fish & Chips
    Established in 1913
    Three generations of quality!
    6. Upper O’Connell street
    Dublin 1
    Tel: 1 872 4400
    I really enjoyed it. It is delicious!

  7. Bangalore, India. Coconut Grove. Very nice. Beer very cheap. Check out for world pint prices.

  8. Thanks Noel, much obliged

  9. Hi David
    If you are in Boston, MA look out for Rapscallion Honey (, a very smooth and drinkable pint from a local brewery. I got mine in the bar of “aloft” in Lexington, MA.

  10. Fanny’s, Saltaire, UK
    Fanny’s Real Ale and Cider House,
    63, Saltaire Rd,
    West Yorkshire,
    BD18 3JN
    Good atmosphere, with superb real ale and cider. Ideal for Xilinx and Altera FAEs, bewildered in the midst of those dark satanic mills in Yorkshire.

  11. I’d like to kick off the Irish section by recommending a lovely seaside pub in Baltimore, West Cork called Bushe’s Bar. It’s a cozy, family run pub full of interesting maritime artefacts. I don’t have the exact address, but you can’t miss it as it’s the only proper pub on the waterfront. It’s the perfect place to pass a leisurely afternoon chatting with locals and puzzling over the crossword.
    I only drink Guiness in Ireland, but you can also find other good local brews. Remember that a half pint is called a glass in Ireland, not that you’ll probably order one!

  12. The Cricketers Arms
    International Drive
    Small pub with 4 real handpulls, notably Ringwood’s Old Thumper
    Very cosy pub amid all the glitz of Orlando

  13. Alun Williams - Electronics

    Excellent. Thank you Bruce – we’ll be putting that one up shortly

  14. At the junction of East Harmony Road and Ziegler Road in Fort Collins (Colorado) you’ll find HP, Intel, AMD, and Avago. Not far away are LSI and Broadcom. In fact, there are more than 2,000 silicon types within a stone’s throw. Located adjacent to this intersection is Austin’s American Grille. Perhaps, the location is the best part of this resturant/bar. Local beers in a good bar for small group conversations. Fort Collins is a college town: home of Colorado State University and, thus, a lot of micro breweries. No shortage of good drinks here. Fort Collins is also the northern anchor of a 38 mile corridor of ICT expertise that extends to Boulder and the University of Colorado. The number of silicon-types working here more than doubles when the entire corridor is included.
