great local pub

One of the best on Yas Island, small and cosy with great outdoor seating; good place to watch the sport and best of all the prices are good compared to all the competition in my neck of the woods!

We visited on a Thursday night while having a weekend break on Yas Island. We had a great waiter who was helpful and friendly. Range of drinks was good and happy hour was in effect. Good bar with outside seating and good atmosphere. Only downside was the smokey atmosphere.
