A Scottish Sports Pub in Lyon

Among the growing trend of British and Irish style pubs to arrive in Lyon is the Wallace which opened in 2005.

It’s a pretty big place (holds around 200 people) and there are four large TV screens to catch up with the latest sports action including football, rugby, golf, NFL, Formula 1 and cricket.
There are also several dart boards if you feel like some more “hands on” sporting action.

The first Monday of every month features the Wallace Whiskey Club and every Sunday is their famous quiz night.

The bar serves around 10 different draft beers and 20 bottled beers plus a large selection of spirits including over 200 different whiskeys. It’s a bright and airy pub with plenty of space so you’ll always find a spot for a drink or a bite to eat.


What to eat: Menu and Prices

The restaurant is open for lunch from 12pm to 3pm and dinner from 7pm to 10pm (Sunday brunch from 11am to 4pm).

There’s a good selection of reasonably priced traditional dishes such as fish and chips, burgers, ribs, club sandwiches, chicken pies and sausages and mash.

The house speciality is the “Chicken Rabbie Burns” consisting of a chicken breast stuffed with haggis, wrapped in bacon and served with their own Wallace whiskey sauce for €12 and there’s a tasty brunch menu including eggs benedict, pancakes or a traditional Scottish breakfast for €12.
