While us girls had a few wee drinkies and a chat. Lee is always up for a laugh he made our nights, he became a friend... read more

Great, friendly service. A good place to go to and the kids can play pool at the same time. I would defiantly recommend it!

This was our local in Olhos last June - Lee made us feel so welcome, and nothing is too much trouble for him (even my husbands constant requests for different sports on TV), he was amazing with my four year old son too, who still talks about dancing to "Scream and Shout" with him. Definitely a must go if you're... More

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

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!

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.
