“Poor customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

Stayed at El gouna for a week and read the reviews on Boxer's Bar which were all excellent.

Prior to the holiday we e-mailed the owner to see if a certain sports match was being shown (scheduled to be on during our first day of holiday) but did not receive any reply.

When we called in to the bar the owner was really not interested in our request and claimed it was not being shown on the tv. After some persuasion, he did finally look on the tv schedule .... yes, the match was on but it co-incidided with another match which some customers were coming to watch. This was no problem to us but his attitude was not friendly and you felt like you were intruding on his time.

Shame really but we did find other places which were more friendly.

“enjoy a drink away from all inclusive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2009

We stopped at the Rhianna inn during April 2009 this was an all inclusive deal. After tea we always had a walk down to the town (5 minutes) we came across Boxers Bar which was showing an England qualifier. Andy soon made us welcome and we enjoyed a drink in his bar every night. The bar is only small but very friendly and we had some good crack. Andys wife Janice provides excellent bar snacks and Sunday roasts if you are missing home cooking Real Bacon butties are a treat not to missed. So i thoroughly recommend a visit to Boxers Bar if you visit El Gouna

“Fit for a Pharoah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2007

I can't speak highly enough of this wonderful little place in El Gouna. Warm and friendly and with the best Sunday Roast dinner in the whole of mainland Africa and also has a number of large TVs covering all major sporting events

Always my first port of call on visits to El Gouna and I'd recommend it to all visitors

regards

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2007

Fantastic little English Bar, does El Gouna proud with the
quality and value of the food, drinks and good company.
Shame the 'all inclusives' are stopping small business
growth with their 'keep it in house' attitude.
Thats not going to do El Gouna any good at all.

Support your 'Locals' and thats Boxers English Bar !!!!
