Union Jack English Pub (Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine)
Union Jack English Pub, 16 Proskurivska Street, Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine. In beautiful downtown Khmelnytskyi and Proskurivska street is closed to traffic for several blocks at all time. It is always busy with families, couples and everyone walking around. After walking around you are probably ready for a refreshment and maybe a bite to eat. The pub like many in the Ukraine is down stairs and easy to find, kind of. It has a large separate covered patio area out side, where like everywhere smoking is allowed. We sat in both places. This pub is run more like a North American Establishment, with lost of staff, all in company shirts etc. Service was pretty good and they did what they could to accommodate my English only ability to speak. They have awesome brick oven pizzas here. This place is quite popular with the locals.....mostly locals here. University is also near by. Here is the place that we got our first decent size glass of wine, usually they give you 100 ml glasses of wine, and by North American standards that just doesn't cut it, LOL!! They have a sit-up bat that holds 8 people. There are 20 different types of beer on tap. I saw some people ordering mugs of beer that looked a lot like a small pail of beer! There are numerous TVs with football on (soccer). There is a room in the back that probably holds 30 people, and I guess you could use it for a function. This place had a good atmosphere. Funny thing an English Pub and no one spoke English! LOL! All in all we enjoyed it here and the staff was friendly. The washrooms are very clean and modern! There is lots of room in this pub. I say give it a try!
