“Excellent Food - Great Quiz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Lovely friendly family bar in central Alvor. Welcoming hosts, Gordon and Lisa have greatly improved this bar and Dirk's quiz on a Friday is great fun. Booking a table early on Friday evening is essential. The home cooked pies and food are excellent and very good value for money.

Went in for lunch, ordered fish chips and mushy peas, homemade pie and a toasted baguette. Great value for money and would recommend visiting this bar. Service was also brilliant 10/10!

“Local like it used to be...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The Crows Nest is a small very friendly pub. Gordon and Lisa along with Lin offer wonderful Sunday Lunches, (the beef melts in your mouth) and homemade pies such as steak and mushroom with flaky pastry served with fresh vegetables and saute potatoes. English breakfasts and much more. On Friday night they have a quiz night which is very light hearted and they often have Charity nights to raise money for the local orphanage. It is very welcoming and well worth a visit.
