If you have a craving for a British meal whilst on holiday, this is the place to go. Pie & chips, beans on toast, they have it all. Very friendly staff, Mars the owner, is very welcoming, excellent atmosphere. Cocktails are excellent. Well worth a visit. PS :- They don't sell Mars Bars!!

Wouldn't normally seek out a British run bar on holiday but had to following the reviews. So glad we did. Mars and his wife are so wonderful, friendly and welcoming. The food is great if you are missing home comforts and Mars will even play (and dance to) a bit of Frank Zappa, if you request it. Made some lifelong... More
