“always a warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

As an expat , it is good to have a friendly welcoming place to visit. You are always greeted as an old friend. even if you haven't been for a while.
They also do a lot for local charities, so you might find a quiz night or Bingo night on during your visit.
The crows nest has a fantastic atmosphere, well worth a visit.
And you will return

“Excellent Food - Great Quiz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Lovely friendly family bar in central Alvor. Welcoming hosts, Gordon and Lisa have greatly improved this bar and Dirk's quiz on a Friday is great fun. Booking a table early on Friday evening is essential. The home cooked pies and food are excellent and very good value for money.

Went in for lunch, ordered fish chips and mushy peas, homemade pie and a toasted baguette. Great value for money and would recommend visiting this bar. Service was also brilliant 10/10!
