We went for a few beers and ended up staying to eat. Food is nothing special but after a week of local food on a business trip anything is good for a change. Service was efficient and friendly (but not Irish - not surprisingly). OK for a few beers and average food.

The service was very slow. Nothing special. Philippine band was not so bad, but cannot play request.

I was very impressed by a Filipino band I saw here called Monkey Bros. They really rocked out. Even took photos with us after the show. Intimate room for live music with a great atmosphere. Food was well above average but took a while to come out. Granted it was pretty busy though. I'll be back!

I have been travelling in Southern China for the past 10 years and I have always had a favourite pub/restaurant in each city I have visited. For Guangzhou, that restaurant is Hooley's. Every time I am there I am able to get more than authentic western pub food (which is incredibly hard to come by in China) and experience the... More

I must say l loved this pub. Went with friends on a Saturday and the place was hopping. The food is your bog-standard pub grub and the drinks are averagely priced but the atmosphere on the 1st and 2nd floor was great! There was a French band playing and whilst l (and l'm sure many others) had no idea what... More

Well as an Aussie this hurts but the truth must be told! I just are lamb chops here and they really were the best I have eaten. C'mon Australia pick up your game. Come here when you want a Western meal you will not be dissappointed I promise. Cheers Dean

Stopped in for a Saturday nite Happy Hour & Pub Grub. Three story building located in the New Town area across from the W Hotel. Happy Hour prices were ok, drinks only. Food was acceptable, nothing to write home about. Good atmosphere except for smoking allowed and most smoked. Local Chinese rock band playing a wide variety of classic and... More

A friend and I stopped here one evening for dinner and the pub quiz. Some of the staff seemed really confused when we asked about the pub quiz but were really good about asking questions for us. The food was alright (I had a salad, my friend a wrap with tzaztiki sauce), but the atmosphere here is wonderful. Everyone was... More

I went here out of desperation to have some Western food so I had bangers and mash. They came with gravy, beans, excellent mash, well-cooked onions and pork sausages (is that authentic?). So I got my fix. I see several complaints about service but I found it pretty good. You wait a while for your meal by Chinese standards so... More
