“Great pub”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Great traditional pub, good bar food and good service. Recommend to anyone looking for a pub venue. Only down side is the place gets a bit smoky on a busy night.

“Traditional British pub in Dar”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Walk through the main door, and you find yourself in the heart of Yorkshire... or Devon... or Norfolk... or any other typically British location. Walls adorned with memorabilia, rafters hung with tankards and travellers-currency from around the world, and a very traditional landlord and landlady perched at one end of the bar. Friendly service, traditional pub-grub meals (burgers, sausage and chips in basket, etc), and lots to choose from behind the bar. Whilst the inside bar is chilly (AC and ceiling fans) the garden is nice (just make sure you've put mozzi spray on!).

Good place for meeting up with expats in Dar. Not a great place for kids.

“If you just need an infusion of English”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This is a typical English pub that you find all around the world, but when you're far from home and just want to have western style drink and food - then this is a nice place. Word of warning -the food is good but they still allow smoking inside and in the dining area.

“Hilarious mix of traditional pub and tropical beer garden”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

One of the most un-Tanzanian places I've seen. Good place to visit if you need a change of atmosphere and if you have enough of the refrigerated pub interior you can crash outside in the extravagantly neon-lit beer garden
