We were a group of four, we ordered Fish & Chips. A nice portion of cod was served but one could only taste the oil it was fried in. The side of salad came with no dressing. Roast Beef seemed like yesterday’s thinly sliced meat...tasting like leather. The Roasted Chicken was very dry and the vegetables cold. The Chili, however was hot , very tasty and nicely spiced . Too bad , with a little more effort they would have scored higher.More

Food was "adequate" but nothing to write home over. However the most annoying issue was the waiter relaxing and smoking a sigarette less than one meter from our table. He also messed up the order from our 9 year old... making him the single person...having to wait for food while everybody had theirs. The starter arrives at same time with main dish.More

The perfect place to eat fish and chips in Gibraltar. The fish was fresh and tasty. The atmosphere wery english. The place in Main Street is easy to find. And the pubkeeper was very friendly.

Travelled to Gibraltar for the first time in 46 years since i was last there in the Royal Navy. Had to pop into the Donkeys Flip Flop to see how it was because Gibraltar has obviously changed so much. I was not disappointed, Lovely atmosphere,...lovely staff, great beer, we didn't eat because it was so busy, but the food looked great. Sadly not many of the old school pubs left on Main St, but The Horseshoe is happily still going strong. Well worth a visitMore

Worst lunch I have ever been served. The beer was old and tasted weird, we were served food with mold on it. They were sorry but charged almost everything.

Stopped off here for drinks while in Gibraltar’s Main Street, unclear as to whether there was table service or not, bar staff wandering around but not committing to take orders. Inside, two female staff members were behind the bar, after being ignored for a minute...or two, I started to order but someone butted in to make a complaint about their order and both started dealing with her and abandoned me. Once I finally got the drinks I was again left at the bar waiting to pay. I also asked three times if they had a menu but was ignored, so ate elsewhere. The cost of a pint of Kronenberg and two soft drinks was over £11 which is pretty pricy. The whole place looked run down and unappealing, a pretty poor show to be honest.More

This pub is on the main street and although have visited the area in the past have never been here as it always appeared crowded. Called one afternoon and found it to be like a typical local pub as found in the UK.A bit rough...and ready but a choice of beers and larger and I had a Superbok that I knew from visits to Portugal. Wife wanted a snack and ordered cheesy chips which came in a large dish with plenty of cheese and a large portion. Also called in on Christmas Day where although they were serving meals we did not eat. Was not over crowded considering.More

Old style Brit Boozer. Central location on main Street.Aso known as The Donkeys Flip Flop ! Tables outside to the front on main street. Food is traditional Brit pub stuff. Don't expect too much. Service was very mixed.

Terrible female bar person, who's attention to detail was severely lacking and whilst ordering our drinks and food, decided to serve other people in the middle of placing our order. The attention to detail meant that the steak and kidney pie arrived without any kidneys,...so she had obviously placed our order for steak pie only and to cap that, I specifically stated one portion was with chips and the other with potatoes (presumably boiled), but both arrived with chips. The food itself was fine and good helpings.More

I always pop in here when in Gib, if you want a great quality beer to cool down from your walk/shopping through main street then this is the place. A lot of history and character inside, plenty of seating outside to people watch or catch...some sun. Staff are so friendly and always make you feel welcome.More
