“A very British pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a drink in here one evening, seemed to have live music each night which is always good.

Prices were on a par with other similar bars up and down the road.

It is definitely a very British style pub with a lot of British patrons (a bit lively for us, but I can see why others, didn't return though as we can go to Brit pubs back home so wanted to go to more local style bars).

“Good atmosphere but mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Bali pub this evening and felt encouraged by the previous reviews and the fact that it was so busy that we had to wait for a table. Sadly it did not live up to expectations - toilets were out of order - with a very funny notice saying "Toilets are [--] - please use Kmart" - really made us cry with laughter but not really what you expect. Waited about 45 minutes for our food at which point 2 out of 3 meals were served and my husband and daughter had finished before my Beef Wellington arrived. It was very disappointed - beef overcooked and chewy and very soggy pastry with cold mashed potatoes which must have been sat on plate for a while waiting for the rest of the meal to be ready. The live music was quite good although we were a bit surprised to hear "White Christmas" in the middle of August - more hysterical laughter! Will def go back for a drink as this place is very quirky but prob won't eat there again

“If it wasn't for this place I would have starved.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

What can we say. Gotta be the best food in Bali. Wish we had found this place when we first arrived in sanur. Run by a distinguished Scottish gent. Nothing was to much trouble. I challenge anyone to fault the beef Wellington. After eating at many of the mediocre eating places in sanur. It must be said at least the Bali pub use the better cuts of meat. The staff are extremely friendly as are the expat locals that frequent the pub most nights. Was that good I think we spent 75% of our nights in there. Excellent value for money. Great atmosphere.

“A Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We returned more than once, and we brought extra people with us each time, and everyone agreed that it was one of the better meals they had in Sanur. I had the ribs twice, hoo-boy that delicious spicy sauce blew my head off! I also tried their new Dim Sum which was delicious! And we also tried the beef pie, the beef wellington, and a chicken wrapped in bacon dish which I don't recall the name of: they were all great. The chef is tops, and I love that he comes and has a chat to see how everything is on your table. The only negative thing I would say is that every time I asked for a cocktail, they seemed to be out of the ingredients for it. Maybe take them off the menu to save disappointment? We were there for the food and the food was great. I would agree with a previous reviewer who said these are some of the best ribs in Bali.
