“Not too sure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

On my first visit I was put off by the 'British Atmosphere' label on the sign outside . However on entering hearing people requesting Barcelona and not Man city on the TV and seeing a third of the football scarves were German , I felt much better . On my second visit I noticed the signs requesting payment when ordering and they were followed by the staff ; I felt all the poorer elements of a British atmosphere i.e. not a customer but a source of cash , little trust and welcome tainted, It was the only place in a week including other 'British bars' were I was requested to pay up front - I didn't return.

“The pub with a 'British Atomosphere'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

32 years under the same ownership so they must be doing something right.
The decor is unchanged since the 80's, but don't let that put you off. A nice bar for a lunchtime drink, but in the evenings and weekends football on the 6 televisions has taken over the place.
A good range of beers and 'generous' shorts measures but if your favourite tipple is a 'real' cup of coffee look elsewhere. It must be the only bar in Puerto without a coffee machine.
