“The BEST bar in Sharm!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The owner of this bar is an incredibly friendly Scot. The manager is also a Scot and always serves you with a smile. The food is fantastic providing a great Sunday roast with all trimmings for £6. We also attended a BBQ on the Friday before we left which offers eat as much as you like for £2... Yes £2 per person! There was a huge selection of meats with kebabs, burgers etc and more salads than a Sainsburys salad isle. The drinks are also great with a lot of imported spirits we drink at home! Would 100% go back just for the great atmosphere and food.

“Must have gone to a different bar to everyone else”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Iv just been reading reviews on bars for my forthcoming (Oct 2013) visit to Egypt and came across this review and thought wow, we'll have to make one in here. Then I read a little more and discovered it was just behind the Iberotel Il Mercato, and realised we'd already visited this bar last year (Nov 2012).

The reviews Iv read do not reflect our experience. I do not know if its in different hands since our visit in Nov 2012.

This place was nothing to shout about, we visited this bar as an escape from the monotony of the hotel. After one drink we had all the excitement we could take (sarcasm). The staff were neither friendly or un-friendly: served drinks, took money, job done. No chit chat was exchanged as the lady behind the bar was too enthralled with watching Nat Geo!

“"Just like mum used to make"”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

When in Egypt, my main complaint was the lack of comfort food and English beer. This traditional pub (run by Lynne) filled all of my needs, and to serve me bacon, in a country that generally does not eat it (mostly Muslim) on International Bacon Day, I recommend it highly. Also, an all you can eat BBQ for £2 (English) is exceptional.
