Description

U Fleků is a pub and microbrewery in Prague, Czech Republic. It occupies buildings around a central courtyard at Křemencova 11 in New Town, (Praha 1), not far from the National Theatre. The front facade of the building has an old, highly decorated clock above its door.HistoryOriginally a family business, the pub was founded in 1499, and therefore celebrated its fifth centenary in 1999. It has been referred to as the oldest brewery in Prague. In 1762 the brewery was bought by Jakub Flekovský, which gave its current name: U Fleků means in Czech "At the Fleks'". After World War II the company was nationalized, and control was transferred to a board of management appointed by the state. Following the Velvet Revolution, the company was privatized.The pub todayCustomers can sit in the open air "beer garden" or inside in the pub.

We had a wonderful dinner here! There's a lot of negative reviews about pushy and rude staff so I was prepared for the worst. But was so happy with my experience here. My suggestion to have a great experience is to understand how it works. Know that it's seat yourself at any available seat. Theres only dark beer. The shots they come around with are not free, and if you don't want any just politely say no. Don't be rude to them and they won't be rude to you. The food was delicious as was the beer. Get the pig knuckles, they were fantastic! GooglePlace - September 2017

Quality has really got worse. I've been here maybe 8 times over the years and it's usually good. However, I went yesterday (September 2017) and the service was rude and food poor. They added 390czk to our bill without explanation and when we asked what the fee was for they feigned lack of English. Warning: never tell them you are American!! That comes with an unfair surcharge!! Just a total lack of respect for customers! Also a basic one - the plates were served within 5 minutes of ordering. the Goulash was pretty cold. This is *basic* stuff and just demonstrates that this place no longer cares about quality at all. Avoid, avoid, avoid - find somewhere that cares what it gives to customers.

Great pub! There is an inner courtyard with lots of trees to provide shade in the day. Long, wooden bench tables give a rustic feel. They automatically serve you their signature dark, bitter beer when you sit down - no need to order. It's not to everyone's taste but worth a try. They also come round offering shots of mead which I highly recommend. Live, traditional music adds to the fun and lively atmosphere. GooglePlace - September 2017

A lot of the negative points on here are very valid- food came out to quickly for it to have been cooked to order, however they are doing so many covers in this pub that they are probably just cooking the dishes constantly and a waiter takes one when it's ready so my food at least was hot and tastes like it had just come out the oven. The other negatives are that the waiter was a bit slow to come over take our order and we had to go up and pay. And the liquor shots at the start that are offered/ slightly forced turn out to be more expensive then the beer. But have to say my food was very tasty (I had the beef). The atmosphere was great, we sat in the courtyard and there was a real buzz and liveliness in the air, and I really enjoyed the accordion player mingling between tables. Also the beer we had was good and it was marvellous how it was bought out in big platters and you are given another one whenever you put your hand up in the air. So all in all my company and I had a thoroughly good time and although there are noticeably high proportion of tourist, the atmosphere food and beer still feel authentic. I think there maybe a slight luck of the draw with the experience of this place. GooglePlace - September 2017

Quality has really got worse. I've been here maybe 10 times over the years and it's usually good. However, I went yesterday (July 2017) and the beer - that I think they brew themselves - was clearly off (it had the characteristic of beer that has got too warm and over fermented) - it had a really tart taste - not normal for this place. I went in February when the beer was normal, not like this - so they must be improperly storing it, and not bothering to taste it or more likely don't care that it's off and think tourists wont notice. I tried to tell a waiter and of course he just ignored me - because they don't care. Just a total lack of respect for customers and for what they are giving people. Also a basic one - the plates with the Goulash were cold, so the food was pretty cold. This is *basic* stuff and just demonstrates that this place no longer cares about quality at all. (of course the service is also not great but that's just Eastern Europe). Avoid, avoid, avoid - find somewhere that cares what it gives to customers. GooglePlace - July 2017
