Visited this British pub, found on walk around Lagos. Seats outside, in a narrow street. Daily special excellent value for money, drink prices very reasonable, friendly welcome by landlady. Enjoyed our visit that much, returned again to enjoy its food etc. Recommend for lunchtime meal certainly.

Needed a place for lunch on the 11th day of our tour. Saw the Guinness sign and decided that maybe this would be a nice change of pace. The food was really good and the service was great. An English accent in the middle of Lagos...our waitress was from Essex, England, and the food had a touch of continental food.... More

I couldn't eat all of mine (sweats,dizzy,etc) and was told it was a poor effort by the owner, when I explained she might see it again if I carried on eating, she was most understanding lol. Great brekkie, great cuppa, and no... More

We only managed to eat here once as we could not find it ! Our lunch was lovely and our waitress Sam is so friendly. The atmosphere is great and most people ate there every day of their holiday. They serve lunches and dinners and the food is excellent with a varied menu. Highly recommended !!

Stopped for a quick drink and what pleasant atmosphere, the locals you thought were Portuguese turned out to be brits living and working out here, but all very friendly and talkative, we didn't stay for food but all the food that was coming out looked lovely. This place just makes you want to come back and stay in this area
