Didn't eat here and the menu seemed a bit limited. Friendly young man behind the bar, happy to chat. Very clean & tidy throughout. Lager £3

We only stayed for a quick drink, but this was a lovely place! Friendly and welcoming staff, and definitely worth a stop.

Probably the best pub food we had in Gibraltar - good basic meals served quickly by really nice staff. It's not cordon bleu but extremely tasty and absolutely British Pub style!

Loved our recent visit here - it ook me back to the days when I was in the RN. It hasn't changed much in 30 years! Great place.

The only good thing about this place is it location off the main strip. The beers were cold so is the service. It made me feel as though we were putting them out by being there. The food was average pub quality food at above pub prices. Next time I will keep walking to the next place.

As a local watering hole, this place ticks all box's. Friendly staff, value for money food and V good beer. (Pipes are cleaned weekly- cold, clear and tastes GREAT!) Do yourself a favour-pop in and say 'Hello'

Spent concert/National Day in Gibraltar with the wife and visited the Cannon Bar and despite some bad reviews found it clean with good service and very hospitable, stayed to watch the Grand Prix. Found the staff friendly. Didn't eat here but the orders to the chef were coming thick and fast and didn't see anyone complain.

This is a popular friendly watering hole in the centre of Gibraltar just off Main Street. I have known this bar and its owner Jane Howard for many years and have always found the food tasty and good value and the service friendly and efficient. I have read some poor reviews on Trip Advisor and would just like to make... More

Just got back from a four day stay in Gibraltar and found this bar on the first day. I must admit they were quite eager to hand you a menu as soon as we got near the place. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had pâté on toast the first time we went there and it was very... More

Just last week we followed the signs from the main street up the hill to the Cannon for lunch. Four meals ordered, two of them came with a side of hair. When we pointed out the first, the waitress questioned it with the reply of 'Come on, I don't think so'. We showed her the hair, she took the plate... More
