The Pub in Mayrhofen
We would call ourselves an Austrian-English Pub with a kind of “Living Room Flair” in the middle of Mayrhofen in Tyrol with it’s amongst beautiful mountain panoramas. We are a popular meeting place for all generations from all nations. Alone the unusual building is worth a visit. The story began before 1900 and even the police had there headquarters here. Thats why we call us Scotland Yard Pub.
Mayrhofen is offering a wide range on leisure activities in winter and summer. Afterwards we are the right place whether to finish an epic skiing day or a cold summer beer on our terrace in a cozy atmosphere.
From housebeer, over craft ale, cider, wine, cocktails and a lot more – our wide range of drinks will satisfy every wish. For the beer lovers we provide a wide range one draught as well as bottled beers.
If you like it more elegant, our new wine menu will be yours.
Best shots in town? We are the right place but come and see for yourself! Some guests challenge themselves to drink the whole shot menu – why not?
For the hungry ones we offer a small selection of hot finger food and some bar snacks like crips, popcorn and tacos.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The story of this unusual building began long before 1900 as Johann Kröll (nicknamed Schmalzer Honis) followed the call of the Great Gold Rush and travelled to make his fortune in Klondike, Alaska, as a Gold Digger and Big Game Hunter. He was successful and on his return in 1905 he commissioned the master builder Johann Rauter-who, through his unusual buliding style had attracted much criticism, to build the „Turmvilla“.
From 1906-1966 the building was a guesthouse, although during the war it was used to shelter refugee families and was later a hostel for workers building the power plant and reservoir in the Zillergrund.In 1966 a completely different period began in the history of the building when the Mayrhofen Police moved their headquarters to here. Many people can still remember the duty rooms on the ground floor and the cells in the cellar. (These cells were often used to contain drunks as they sobered up.In 1985 Peter Krenslehner was able to free the „Turmvilla“ from the hands of the law and after a refurbishment inside opened the SCOTLAND YARD PUB. Peter was running the Pub nearly 30 years.In November 2014 we took over the Pub – now we and our team are doing our best to satisfy every guest wish.
