“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

I found the Crow's Nest in Alvor by accident but it soon became a regular and favourite place to Ethan and drink. The owners Gordon and Lisa are friendly and welcoming and with the atmosphere it soon became like home. A pub quiz is held on a Friday night and the food is fantastic I can recommend the fish and chips and the Sunday roasts. All in all a little bit of home abroad. Highly recommended.

“Top bar, Top people”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Have been going to the Crows Nest ever since Lisa and Gordon took over the pub, the meals in here are superb and freshly cooked to order by Lisa and the portions are huge and very good value for money, drink is very cheap and the barman is very very good. Both Gordon and Lisa can't do enough for you and we always manage to have a good laugh with them. A good night to meet new people is the quiz night on a Friday, always a bit of banter and a fun night. I would highly recommend The Crows Nest to everyone, Ohh nearly forgot DO NOT miss the Sunday roast one of the best iv'e had anywhere, also ask Lisa about her battered sausages and chips in a basket just lovely. Will be back to visit very soon.

“Such a warm wonderful welcome”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

I have spent many a happy day in the Crows Nest, Lisa & Gordon are such wonderful hosts and can't do enough for you, they will do all they can to try and accommodate you, the food is absolutely wonderful and the portions are huge. The roast dinner is a absolute must, I'm a very fussy eater but Lisa will always make sure she has things I like and that I'm full before I leave. The prices for both food and drink are extremely reasonable.
The quiz nights on are Friday are not to be missed, they are a fun way to meet others and have a laugh. I enjoy the time we spend at the Crows Nest and cannot wait to return again.

“Family pub”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Had a fantastic Xmas Meal here. What made it different to all the rest in Alvor? It was freshly cooked, hot, tasty & served with a smile. The attention to detail & personal service to make this day special was 2nd to none.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is our first winter in Alvor. We were very much welcomed by Gordon & Lisa who have introduced us to their network of friends.
Top of the list is the quiz night with Dirk. Such a laugh and everyone mucks in.
When I am feeling homesick - their roast dinner is the pick of my day - yum.
Thanks for making us feel so welcome.
