The WaterLoo Pub - The English Pub in Turku
Welcome to The WaterLoo pub – Turku’s only real English pub owned by a real Englishman! Situated in the middle of Puutori square in the centre of Turku, The WaterLoo pub started life as a public lavatory for Turku Bus Station. It fell into disuse in the 1980s when the bus station moved down the hill, but was converted into a pub, the famous Puutorin Vessa, in 1997 and has been one ever since.
Nowadays, not only does the pub sell a wide range of beers, ciders and other alcoholic beverages from the British Isles and all over the world, but it also serves snacks and Indian curries.
The WaterLoo is also a centre of entertainment in Turku, hosting weekly live music and retro discos, as well as quiz nights and sing-along evenings with a live troubadour. There are also two TV screens for watching English Premier League Football and other sporting events from around the globe.
The WaterLoo also boasts one of Turku’s largest summer terraces. We can accommodate up to 150 seats and, being in the middle of a square surrounded by relatively low buildings, in summer the terrace is bathed in sunlight from dawn to dusk.
