Worth seeking out

The place to go to watch sport, have a drink and get a friendly welcome. Only basic bar snacks so not really a place to eat. Lee works his socks off to make everyone welcome and remembers what everyone drinks. Quiz night is a bit of fun. Excellent Wi-Fi reception and its free!

12th time in Olhos and we always make this bar our base. If you like your sport and a few beers this is the place for you. Lee as always was very welcoming and he really knows how to help you have a good time. Not the place for a meal but does toasties and burgers if you fancy a... More

Holidays is just like a workmans cafe that sells alcohol and attracts a certain clientele I personally don't go on holiday to watch the T.V. Or play quizzes, but each to his own I suppose . it is situated in what resembles an alley. Sorry but why do want to do on holiday what you can do at home? It's... More

This bar has changed in the last yerar or so from a Restaurant / Bar to a bar selling snacks, burgers, toasties etc and it has become a real home from home which caters for all your sporting and drinking needs. Lee behind the bar is a one man show and really goes out of his way for you. He... More

Although the owner was pleasant and cheerful we were told that only snacks were available. The outside seating has no outlook, typical british bar abroad feel to it.

We went here for the quiz night which takes place every Thursday. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. Lovely place, attentive service, decently priced drinks and a real family atmosphere. Quiz was bloody tough though! Well worth a visit!

A great inexpensive pub with good food and large portions. Great place to sit either inside or out and Lee certainly looks after you along with Sharon. Always felt very welcome here and most of the clientele when we were in were happy to talk and have a laugh. It really is a home from home as far as a... More
