Iasi: Trumpets - Good food & Great Time

My dearest hearts,

I've been meaning to tell you about a place in my hometown for a very long while now, I just didn't have a chance to sit down and write about it. The Trumpets is a very British pub in the heart of the city, in Palas Mall Iasi. It's a very friendly place, extremely upbeat and positive, with very good customer care. It's a place where mamy of my (corporate) friends spend their time after work, or even come there for their lunch break. The "5 o'clock" options that they have are amazingly yummy and at a decent price, less than 5 euros - including drinks.
The pub has places both indoor and outdoor, and considering the weather in Romania (unlike the one in Poland) you can enjoy sitting on the terrace until late November. The seating options outside are more comfortable and nice - and if you come with a friend that smokes you'll prefer that, as smoking indoors is prohibited by law in Romania. The indoor seating has many tall chairs, pub experience to the max. I've always loved how the indoor was decorated - it actually gives you the British feel and look. I love even the cute little bathrooms, with the ladies sign for "Iron Ladies". 
The Trumpets in Iasi is open from 9 am to 2:30 am but Fridays and Saturdays they stay open a bit longer, until 4:30 am.  They host lovely live concerts of local/national bands and when there is a gig night it always gets extra crowded. Besides their well established British theme, along with a red phonebooth and all, there is a wider selection than usual when it comes to beers. I dare you to find another pub in Iasi that has a similar selection! You will also get a kick out of reading their menu - it's priceless! The names of the products sold are names of British bands and artists. You can enjoy a breakfast with Egg Sheeran ;) how cute is that?!
The prices:
- hot beverages (tea) - 250 ml - 7,99 RON
- lemonades - between 9,99 and 10,99 RON
If ever you travel to Romania and find yourself in Iasi, make sure you get to the Palas Mall. Take a short break and have a fresh pint of Kilkenny / Guinness + some fish and chips on the side (the chips are delicious! And you should ask for them either way, they go nice with the beer). Don't forget to let me know what you think of the place!

Yours truly,
