We went there on Thurs evening and there is no one else there. However, all the other bar and restaurants nearby are very quiet and see hardly anybody. The guinness is good and there is not much in the food department. I think the pub...More

The Londoner was one of the handful of expat friendly pubs near Yundang Lake. While normal prices of beer are bit high, the happy hour deals were pretty good and the staff were friendly.

No other bar in Xiamen can better tell the true story of the expat experience in this city by the sea. None. Having been serving in this location "forever", and having stood the test of time in style, it's THE place to go for a...More

You can pay only with local mobile phone system or with cash. No credit cards accepted. There are only 3-4 different draft beers: Guinness. Green king IPA, Carlsberg and something local. A pint of Guinness and Green kings costs 60 yuan, which is pretty steep....More

Great service, and an often changing selection of great international beers on tap - not always easy to find! The leafy street adds to a fantastically chilled atmosphere.... The Londoner rocks!!!!

Small niche bar, with mainly foreigners and local foreigners/regulars. Good service, good prices, friendly place to socialize and meet foreigners from all over the world. Met some lifelong friends here.

A great watering hole set in the typical Englsih Pub decor and ambience, a gathering place for both the old Xiamen Expat community and the westernized local crowd. With outdoor seating area that serves as a platform for people to meet and mingle.

The bar itself is quite small, the patio area may larger than inside. The decoration there is just as causal as a small bar, nothing to talk about. The selection of beers there was so disappointing. Well, they've got two IPAs on tap, but other...More
