The owners are very experienced and great hosts. The food is excellent and the Sunday roast is as good as i have had anywhere (it was only 6 euros each). Lots of expats there as well as visitors. Well worth going!! As a Scot I am happy to say it embodies all that is good in English pubs!! On the edge of the village it is well worth the 3 minute walk.

First and foremost this is an English style pub serving good honest English grub.We have been coming to Burgau for 25yrs during which time this bar/restaurant has grown from humble beginnings to the size that it is now. Two bars,eating areas inside and out, numerous screens for the sporting enthusiast,an outside pool for customers to use and free Wi-Fi although I do recommend you pop in for a drink to use this facility.The surly yorkshireman you will be greeted by is Rotten the proprietor and full-time raconteur par excellence. One would feel slightly dismayed and ignored not to be insulted(in a jovial manner) by Rotten. Behind every faltering man stands a woman who in this case is Pat who manages to keep him just this side of sanity whilst keeping everything going with the capable help of Blair (the best thing to leave Scotland since me), Mick and his Missus and Dave the chef. I raise a glass to you Rotten and Pat for providing a constant in an ever changing world and long may you continue. Do not go to this establishment if you are easily offended or a fan of Sheffield Wednesday. We are back in Sept so start muddling my caipirinha. I would like to assure readers of this review that I have not (yet)received any payment in kind for this wonderful review.
