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.

Tips from the Net @ U Fleků

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

We were at the U Fleku for a large conference dinner and had rented the whole restaurant for the night. Both food (onion soup, half a duck with dumplings and kraut, apple strudel) and beer were excellent and the staff was very friendly considering the amount of people that had to be served. However, additional drinks after the included two free drinks were expensive for Prague standards at 60 crowns for a beer. Still, I would recommend the U Fleku for the great food, beer and service.

Food is average but very bad service. I asked a waiter once for water please, and he shouted at me asking me to sit down twice. Would recommend avoiding this restaurant. GooglePlace - July 2017

Although interior is very nice unfortunately I must give only 2 stars. This pub is a 'must' while in Prague so it's popular among tourists, and there was a waiting line for entering. Once inside, you sit on the table and beer will be served to you (there is only one kind of beer). We ordered food as well... Waiters didn't speak it all, they just took the order and left in a second. Quality of beer and food were below average, nothing special... Maybe the pub was good before, but I guess mass tourism took its toll. I would suggest looking around for a smaller pub! GooglePlace - July 2017

The vibe was great, beautiful outdoor ambiance, and if my meal would have been better it would have been 5 stars. I got the duck which was pretty expensive for Prague ($15), and that would have been fine if it was fresh. But it came out in 5 minutes and lukewarm. The inside was obviously cooked but again lukewarm, and you can't place the order with the kitchen, have them cook it, and bring it out to you in 5 minutes, so it was obviously cooked earlier in the day. Who knows how much earlier, but it was gross. Plus they pass around shots and don't tell you that they cost money, then you get the bill, which has a highlighter underlining "tip not included". Would not come back. GooglePlace - June 2017
