Old Rock

Located on main Street (Honmachi), Old Rock is a shop that not only takes on the appearance of an English Pub, but also lives up to that appearance. Old Rock was mannered after a pub called ‘Rock’ in Northern England.
On the Old Rock’s 7th year on October 2, 2009, the pub unveiled a new look to encompass even more of an English pub feel.

Feel it from Your Head to Your Toes

We want to serve you delicious beer.
11 years ago, Old Rock’s proprietor, Mr. Hayashi, opened Main Bar Coat, the first bar in Nagano Prefecture to serve Guinness beer on tap.
But, Mr. Hayashi wanted to introduce more beer to his customers and decided to open Old Rock. Now he has chosen 7 different beers to keep on tap.

Old Rock’s Keg Cooling System
The cooling system used at Old Rock allows for temperature variation of the beers on tap, ensuring that each is stored and served at a suitable temperature. Not only have they adopted this cooling system, but each staff member is thoroughly trained in how to control it.

The owner stresses to his customers that beer is not just a refreshing drink for hot summer days, but can be enjoyed any time of the year. Beer is delicious whenever you drink it. Besides that, the air of Matsumoto makes beer taste better.

Stop By and Join Us!

Old Rock brings in a large crowd spanning a wide demographic. Old and young alike enjoy the atmosphere and the food.

The food menu at Old Rock is large and strives to use local ingredients in its wide array of dishes, including fish n’ chips – well known English fare. The lunch special changes everyday and is also a popular option.

The restaurant, with its foreign bought furniture and decorations projects a true English pub feel where locals and foreigners alike can kick back and relax.
Like most English pubs, orders are on cash on delivery basis, but you can also open a tab and pay after. Whether you come by yourself, in a group, or even decide to throw a party, Old Rock is the real thing.
