Best place to watch the footy but gets far too packed.. steakhouse downstairs is ok.. but I.O.M does not have much choice when it comes to steakhouses or sports bars

“Don't be fooled: this is a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Heard good reviews of this place back in November when on the Isle of Man with a colleague on business. From the outside it looked like everything I dislike in modern sports bar type pubs (a fizz palace) but downstairs -- what a contrast. Even out of season it was well filled -- superb food and plenty of it, good service. Went back in Easter on holiday and discovered I should have booked in advance-- not surprisngly it was filled with locals and visitors. Seafront location. Next time I'll book!
