Good food - typical British pub menu

Good food, simple and quite typical uk menu (tandoori chicken, burgers, chicken & mushroom pie, etc.). No fish dishes. Coffee was good too. Reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. WIFI works well.

Just like a pub, back home. Same Menu, same staff, same cooking. Nothing that would bring you back again. It was reasonably priced. Will be forgotten, very quickly.

We asked during the day if a booking was required, we know now why we didn't need one.... From the just warm coffee, then to be told, no soup, we set about choosing our meal. The poor waiter came back from the kitchen saying "we need to order now and that all courses would be served at the same time... More

Stopped in for a drink, but once staff knew we had already eaten were very inattentive. They also were rather cool towards a conspicuously Indian and sat her next to open door. Will not be back, as there's plenty of choice!

Food was OK. Service was not very good... the lady who greets us rolled her eyes when we asked to sit at a table that was not ready (I guess because she needs to get it ready?). The rest of the staff were nice though. It was an OK lunch but nothing extraordinary to talk about.

A very buy place full of locals and tourists but the place has a buzz. Staff are really lovely and food is very good. We visited it a couple of lunch times, unfortunately we never got back to try an evening meal.

We visited The Clipper on the last day of our holiday. Excellent food and service, if we had found this place earlier in the week we would have made a return visit! Well recommended!!!

The staff are lovely in this clean and modern bar/restaurant. We always go for lunch here when in Gibraltar as its excellent value. Great portions. Too much choice on the menu!!! Always leave content with very full stomachs. Highly recommended. Ideal for families and everyone.

We dined here shortly after arriving in Gib on an early evening flight - both famished after a day spent travelling and unable to resist the lure of a proper roast dinner. Both me and my partner had the roast pork (my original choice of the roast chicken being sold out) and were very impressed with our meals. Nothing fancy,... More
