Having been recommended The Clipper was all we could wish for with a good selection of well prepared and presented meals. Hot meal, warmed plate. The better meals IMO were the Steak pie, good portion with surprisingly large quantity of large pieces of very good steak and secondly the Fish Salad with a great selection again including shellfish. Tidy and... More

Nothing but good experiences from this restraunt/bar every time I visit. Staff are very friendly and food is of a good quality. Would recommend this venue to friends and will be visiting next time I'm in Gibraltar.

Went in for coffee and snack, we were seated straight away and ordered coffee and cheese and onion toastie, coffee was good but toastie tasteless, staff were very friendly and quick. Place was clean and so were toilets not good for wheelchairs as ramp to steep but seats outside if it is a nice day

A very busy pub in the Irish Town area of Gibraltar. Food and service ok but maybe more staff are needed as it was all a bit slow. Overall though good traditional Britsih style pub.

We found this restaurant by accident on our last night. We were impressed with the menu choices, I was really fancying a roast dinner and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were friendly but seemed to be rushed. Our order took 45 minutes to arrive and the staff kept apologising for the delay. The quality and value for money was good,... More

Mixed bag this place. It's nice to feel part of the whole "gib crowd" but to be honest the pub is not hitting the mark. Needs more staff to be honest. It's only serving basic pub food so I'd expect better service. Quality was not exactly mind blowing. Under seasoned food served mildly lukewarm. Don't think I'd go back.

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!
