Taken a while to write this but whist visiting friends on the Island (Jen and Lynne) we were introduced to this bar. Their burgers were fantastic, the sunday roast amazing and the bike hire was fair, honest and extremely reasonable. Top that off with welcoming staff and friendly locals and this bar is a must visit.

Had the Sunday Roast here a few weeks ago and it was amazing. The portions are massive but also really delicious. It's amazing how many different items they could fit onto one plate besides the roast pork (they have chicken too). Roasted veggies, Yorkshire pudding, and different cuts of the pork all delicious.

Some friends had been on the island for a couple of days by the time we got there and banyan, or the cunts bar as it got named, was all they spoke of. After a 1st night with one casualty asleep under the table, and lots of swearing, pain and neurofen the following day, this had become home. Think cheers... More

This place does a great roast dinner! I had roast pork which had a generous serving of meat including perfect crackling a Yorkshire pudding and loads if gravy. A really nice setting and decent wine - perfect :)

The Sunday roast here is to die for, proper gourmet food in the most unexpected place, what a gem. They have a great selection of nibbles too.

Whether you like to get loose or just relax and have a drink. The welcoming staff and locals make you feel part of the family/bar. The food is excellent and well prepared. There Sunday Roast is excellent and people come from all over the island to have one. Great bar, great food. Most important great staff and people!

Went into this bar for a few beers for their Oktoberfest. Great afternoon tasting different ciders and beers from around the world. A real locals crowd who were very friendly and a little crazy...

For 300 bhat you choose chicken or pork. The BBQ comes with veggies, bread, sauce, and more all on one plate. Good portion. Very good comfort food. The non-alcoholic drink selection is relatively poor.

Found this bar on our way back to our bungalow. The place was rocking. The bar staff were very friendly and insisted on giving you shots. I avoided the jager bombs. My daughter didn't and was wrecked the next day.
