“Give it a try!!!!!! So chilled!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Finding this place was one of our happiest accidents of the holiday (I was surprised to see it wasn't yet listed on Tripadvisor and told the friendly staff I had to get this place listed so others didn't miss out!)

Just opposite the bus station Tourist Street, Qawra.

Firstly this place has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, full of sporting and drinking memorabilia (check out scarves etc from just about every major football club in the world, and the display cabinets of specialist whiskers and brandies!). A/C is wonderfully refreshing and staff are welcoming in a laid back and on-pushy way. This place sees plenty of returning tourists as well as the obvious regulars of expats or local Maltese (another good sign in my book!)

Food and drink is plentiful and very good value. Again served with a smile, and a bit of a chat (if that's what you want! But no pressure!)

Free wifi and large screen tabs for sports events.

Give it a try! I bet you'll return?

“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Visited Red Lion due to enormous thunderstorm to shelter from rain.
Not a bad diversion large wine pint of local lager E5.00.
We ordered half roast chicken chips/salad,omolette with two
fillings chips/salad total cost E15.00.
The food and service was excellent and if not our last night
would have eaten there before.
Would highly recomend if you are looking for a pub type meal.
