Novomestsky Pivovar (New Town Brewery) in Prague is located near Wenceslas Square
, and is a traditional Czech pub style restaurant with its own microbrewery.
As you enter the restaurant the copper beer brewing tanks are right in front of you, set inside the first dining area. But there is much more to Novomestsky Pivovar, the restaurant is a labyrinth of rooms and alcoves spread over different levels.
This is a nice restaurant to try out some hearty typical Czech food. The menu offers plenty of choice, with a variety of meat and fish dishes, plus pasta and large salads too, all at very good prices for the centre of the city.
For drinks, visitors can sample the brewery's own Pilsner beer, as well as a range of wines, spirits and soft drinks.
The service at Novomestsky Pivovar is straight forward and efficient; food and drinks are served in good time, indeed they can usually get a beer to you very speedily. But as it is a traditional Czech restaurant, don't expect too much small talk (it's just a cultural difference!).
During the day, you may get a table if you are passing, but in the evening reservations are important. Novomestsky Pivovar is popular with couples, families and groups of all kind.
Groups of 10 or more can take a 20 minute tour of the microbrewery. The brewmaster leads you through the public and private areas of the restaurant, to explain the different stages of the brewing process. Naturally the tour ends with a beer tasting.
