Just Average

The Cannon Bar is located just off main Street away from the noisy bustle. Beer is good and the food is average pub food which does not disappoint. Reputed to be one of the oldest pubs in Gibraltar with outside dining area.

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

Good beer on a hot evening. What could be better than that with a friend. See you for a cold one sooner than you think. Good to be with friends.

My husband and I were having a pleasant vacation in Gibraltar. We do not normally eat or drink in such places but it was a bit late and the nearby restaurants were mostly closed so we decided to stop briefly for sandwich and tea. We ordered at the bar and sat at one of the tables outside. All the tables... More

I'm at a loss for words as to how to respond to this nasty review of my pub. Firstly, why did they wait for so many months before submitting the review? Was it to sabotage my summer trade? (That hasn't worked if it is the case, we're packed with hopefully happy tourists) we have no signs saying that the internet... More

It's a Rock solid British pub in the centre of town. Barman was very helpful and friendly and I know this sounds sad but good WiFi! Do visit if you find yourself in Gibraltar and say hello.

This is a typical British style pub with friendly staff serving decent quality food at reasonable prices. It is well located just off Main Street in Gibraltar town and is great for a drink after a day's sightseeing.

We stopped here for lunch on a short visit to Gib. We both ordered fish and chips. The service was fairly friendly and quite swift. The food was all cooked from frozen. Cheap, battered fish fillet and frozen chips, served with frozen (cold) peas. Edible, but not great. The only thing that was not frozen was my beer, which was... More

Looking for a Traditional Pub to have a pint and Fish n chips. We ordered Two fish n chips, with half a cider and half a pint of larger. This came to Pounds sterling 21:50p. This was average - nothing more to say !
