My partner had the chilli burger and wasnt disappointed by the amount of chilli on the plate. One of the days we had had a couple of shandy's and popped... More

Went there to see a couple of football games on TV. Had drinks and then thought we may as well have dinner as well. Not disappointed. Service was quick, attentive and friendly.

Visited scoobys a few times whilst on holiday. Owner extremely friendly on our first visit. Nice English breakfast. Lovely lady that served us on our last day was very friendly and efficient. Would defiantly return if I was in the area.

Popped in once during my stay in Praia de Gale (to relax and watch a football match) and found this to be the friendliest and nicest bar in the area. Can't comment on food as I had none, but the staff were great and the owner Simon (Scooby) made me feel very welcome. In fact the next day (on his... More

We were staying in a nearby Villa and fancied a good old Full English one morning. We decided to try Scooby's as it was the nearest of all the options. We were not disappointed and for 8 Euros there was even a Double Full English on offer, two eggs, two sausage, two bacon.... The tomatoes are the best breakfast tomatoes... More

We visited Scoobys largely on the lure of half priced cocktails ! The cocktails were only 3 euros but were uninspiring so glad we only paid half price. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff were really friendly. We are there and the food was fine, bog standard pub grub menu. It is a great place for younger families... More
