Please know that this is not a pub in the sense you are thinking of when searching for an English Pub. It is a lovely property but no worth the worry of trying to find the place. It is the personal property of a very nice man who enjoys beer.

You won't find Black Sheep Pub advertised anywhere in Nosara - I knew about it only because of the four reviews on TripAdvisor. In fact, when I mentioned the pub to a Tico guide, he said Black Sheep only opens four times a year for parties and I wouldn't be able to get in. Maybe that adds to the feeling... More

The owner/publican is really friendly and runs this more as a hobby. The atmosphere is amazing - you'd think you were in the heart of London from the interior. A great selection of ales and barley wine. The local breweries were even contacted for news on anything new or interesting by the owner/publican. If you love pubs and you want... More
