“nice little pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

a short walk from the Rixos where we stopped. A friendly atmosphere with good choice of food and alcohol. There are several screens both inside and out typically showing football. Very busy when big matches are played but we were still able to get seated and served. Food was simple bar meals that were inexpensive and tasty. Air con inside was better than surrounding bars and restaurants.

“I like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This cafe/restaurant is just 5 minutes from my house. Inside and outside sitting is well presented. Sports Bar? YES! Screens will translate football (now super League 2013). Clean. British guests from nearby hotels daily come here - nice community. Meals and drinks are nice and for today special is lasagna with salad and bread is only for 65 LE (less than 10$).
3 years ago I celebrated my birthday there - was fun.
Special words about staff - kind and welcoming.
Place is suitable for couples, family, friends or solo.
Everybody knows that there is too windy in Sharm especially in winter time. What I like that outside the restaurant they have made a nice tent, which may protect you from wind, sand and the sun rays.
Try it.

“Fantastic bar and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

2nd visit to this part of Egypt and we made a special effort to visit The Union Jack. The staff are all very attentive and pleasant and we never felt under pressure to buy food. We did eat there a few times breakfast and evening and the standard of food was excellent, especially as my wife is very fussy and usually survives on bread pasta and fruit in hotels. We loved that we were able to keep up with f1 as this is our passion. So keep up the good work Jake, Aaron and all the staff and see you soon

“A great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

had a great few nights here staff are very welcoming and friendly always made sure we had a drink. we ate twice and the first time the food was amazing that I just had to have a chicken burger again the second time it was huge and they forgot my onions the chef said he put them on and I found one but they kindly gave me a plate full. the food was always filling and good quality.
Plenty of space and air con through out. Prices are very good.
They have many different things on during the week and great deals like ladies night 1/2 price cocktails, karaoke and disco nights. Also show all sports which made the guys happy! Highly recommend this place for a meal and drinks out.

“Great for footy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We went here to watch football and was great little home away from home

I had fillet steak which I asked for medium rare but came blue they rectified right away and was amazing steak and cheap as well.

Don't order the cheap burger as it's awful only bad thing really but they do steak burgers and offer great other food.

I did enjoy this place but think the burger spoilt my fiancé experience at this place.

Recommend for football and steak but not the burgers

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to write this review.

We do offer many types of burger which vary very differently and like you said the Steak Burger, which is the most popular at about 5 pounds. I hope that we rectified the problem on the day with the problems you had.

Hopefully you will visit Sharm again and pay us a visit.
