Stayed at the nearby Eirasol Apartments for four nights in January and ate here on one of the nights. They have a special Winter Warmers menu for off-season which is fantastic value. The Steak and Ale pie with buttery mash was excellent. Good wee British style pub/restaurant well worth a visit.

Once again visited this English fun pub. Staff are great especially Ben who goes out of his way to help you with anything. Food is great as is entertainment with Joe. Outside terrace offers all day sun along with the use of a pool if you wish. Also offers shade on the few occasions it might rain.
