Port Stanley pubs?

Hi,

Spent 3 months visiting (when I could) The Globe, Victory and 'The Rose' (?) back in 1985. The Penguin Brewery was in full swing in those days, I realise it closed a short time later, which I thought a shame.

Is it just canned beer again down in Port Stanley now?

I am back in The Falklands (for only a week this time) very soon, could someone inform me if those three establishments still going and if so, in what form and what beer selection is available?

<*))))))><

It's Bottled and Cans still I'm afraid.

But the three pubs you mention are still going, there are other,

Stanley in west Stanley

The Narrows in East Stanley and

Deanos Bar in the centre

Cheers Jason,

Sounds like I might have a 'pub crawl' if I get the chance.

Well I managed to get down to Stanley for half a day: went to Gypsy Cove and then for a beer in 'The Globe Tavern'.

Gypsy Cove hasn't changed apart from the tourist signs and a toilet block but The Globe and Port Stanley certainly have: supermarkets and posh gift shops, I could have been almost anywhere in the world (in was sunny, dry and the wind wasn't too bad), shame, it's lost it's uniqueness a little.

Still brought back some happy memories though.

Hi, sorry this question has nth to do with pubs :)

I was just wondering whether you know how to get to Falkland Islands from Argentina? I was searching for some regular local ship cruises but cannot find anything :(

Thank you.

babuska - probably a lot better if you start a new question rather than post on someone elses...

Anyway, some ships don't advertise they go to the Falklands, as they may have trouble accessing Argentine ports.

There's another recent post from someone arriving on Golden Princess, but all visits are subject to weather, so if you really want to be certain of seeing the Falklands, I would fly.

You can fly using LAN Chile, from Rio Gallegos once a month. (Return flight is a week later).

Yes the pubs are still there...but oh so dirty!

Be prepared to want a shower after you've used the toilets!

Not true for The Globe, IMO. Good fish & chips.
