A tonic in more sense than one!

An established pub in its own right but now with the addition of one of the islands most consistent chefs.
Jules at the rovers have been knocking food out for a couple of months now but I've only just got around to paying a visit myself. A welcome change from overpriced brewery food. Unpretentious and honest cooking. Thank you jules and the rovers. We'll be back!

Fireman’s Pub!
May 2019 • Friends
Beer pumps are old fashioned fire hose nozzles. Cigarette cards of fire engines through the ages. Great beer. Good quiz night. Juke box great.
Difficult to find, but it is a small stones throw from the Norman Wisdom statue!

Been a fan of the bushys beer I can't believe I've only just been in the pub.
Visited on my last visit and enjoyed a pint of the manx pride.
Loved the pub it was like walking back in time. Like the rest of the island.

Traditional drinkers pub with good range of beer
Apr 2018 • Couples
If you want a good drinking pub in the centre of Douglas you won’t go far wrong at the Rovers Return. The “Rovers” refers to Blackburn Rovers rather than Coronation Street - apparently the landlords’ obsession as he has a whole room dedicated to their memorabilia. Good beer, a variety of small rooms and a very friendly atmosphere.

Quiet boozer. Great beer.
Aug 2017 • Couples
Ah yes. A great pub with no pretentions. Beer hunters will note that the pub is a rare exclusive outlet of the delicious Busheys brewery - also from the Isle of Man. The Ale of Man Manx Bitter is one of the most delightful brews we have tasted in recent months. Depth of flavour. And a creaminess with honey notes and mild bitterness. The pub itself is a proper boozer. No frills. A good choice for a session

A great fInd

On the IOM for a day trip we were finding it difficult to spot a place to eat and drink and then walked round a corner and found The Rovers Return
Not a place for those who prefer expensive cocktails but a real pub for people who like good beer.There were eight pumps working on the day, though I was not familiar with any of the beers.
I told the young lady the type of beer I prefered and she pulled me a pint - spot on!
Food is simple and goes well with the beer. My Chilli was served piping hot - excellent.
No problem about returning here if I return to the island.
