Found this place by accident, just off the main road. It was very quite when we arrived. The staff were friendly and attentive. The drinks selection was good, having both draft and bottled beers. We ordered food,a seafood salad - which was basic, tinned tuna, frozen packet prawns and a crab stick, tasted ok, but I was expecting fresh seafood.... More

Restaurant clearly couldn't cope with the the quantity of customers. Order was ages being taken. Food arrived sporadically, meaning that I had ate half my meal before my daughters arrived. Really poor service. French family clearly having the same issues complained to the waitress. Food wasn't bad but have had better, bill was wrong. Didn't tip!

We were met at the door and asked for a table for six. The lady went into the restaurant and returned asking our party to follow. We noticed several empty tables and wondered why we were not offered any of theses but soon found out. After ordering drinks which were promptly served we noticed a large party obviously prebooked into... More

We had no problem with the food we ordered, but unfortunately the service was terrible. On arrival we were told curtly that they would be closing in 25 minutes and that we would have to be quick. The waitress was obviously unhappy that we were going to prolong her shift. It was not a pleasant experience.

WE zipped in for a quick coffee and cold drinks for the kids - got to be the worst Latte I have ever had and my husbands black coffee wasn't great either. Service was abrupt and not very friendly. My son loved the model ships and the drinks were less than £6 for all of us so not all bad.

We were in Gibraltar on a Sunday, so it is hard to find a place that offered food. We found this Irish pub and it seemed everyone had found it as well as it was quite busy but we were able to be seated. Good British food.

We were in Gibraltar on a day trip from the Costa Del Sol, and discovered the Clipper Inn via the Tripadvisor app, as we thought it better to try somewhere good rather than a "tourist trip" on Main Street. I completely agree with other reviewer's comments. The food and atmosphere was much better than the other restaurant we tried in... More

The food here is good home cooking, the restaurant was very clean, and the staff were friendly. The menu is varied but no so that you cant decide what you want to eat. My husband had the steak pie and it was amazing, I had the vegetarian menu and equally amazing, They are in the Irish Town
