I visited the Clipper on a couple of occasions in July 2014. The pub is well decorated with nautical memorabilia as well as satellite TV's everywhere. The staff were excellent on both of my visits. I opted for the fish and chips on both my visits. I was expecting a piece of fish straight from the freezer but to my... More

Food seemed fresh and home cooked. Great selection on the menu. Good portions. Only (tiny) complaint was the not so pleasant coffee. It was... More

Found this great pub while taking a detour. Enjoyed the hospitality, food and service so much that we went back! It seems to be very popular with local residents, understandably, so either get there early or book!

We happened upon this pub last Friday when visiting Gibraltar and can honestly say it was a pleasant surprise to have some really tasty food, after suffering the dross in our hotel for a week! The staff were exceptionally friendly and offered good advice regarding the use of sterling and not Euros during our shopping spree. The food really was... More

This place is great. We stayed in Gibraltar for a week and went here for breakfast everyday. The staff are very attentive and on the ball, only wish I could get this level of service in the UK. The best thing about the Clipper is the they do not mandate that you cannot have sandwiches and chips for breakfast! I... More
