“Good Pub - Good Food - Excellent Staff”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Having just returned from P.D.C. two days ago after our tenth visit, we stumbled upon "Friends" after reading about it on Trip Advisor forum as a "must visit place"

During our two week stay, we visited the pub eight times and ate there five. The food was excellent, portions generous, prices competitive and the Sunday lunch and fish and chips have to be the best on the Island.

I get the feeling that we are embroiled in some sort of "Turf War" with a local competitor however that does not concern us.

All I can say is that the couple who own the place are VERY sociable and EXTREMELY welcoming otherwise we would not have returned repeatedly.

“Still best place to eat for menu and quality.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

After eating here for most of my stay last October was very disappointed to find it closed on my arrival for the first three nights 'til Friday 11th, but then i just appreciated it all the more for choice and good food and drink (pint glasses) and very pleasant staff, don't sit too close to the bar tho', when new girl serving asked if i wanted anything else i asked for ear-plugs, 'cos there's a pony tailed fella gets in regular who dunt just like to hear him self talk he wants several bars away to hear also, but all in all i'd go back there with my custom.

“Lovely friendly place”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Here again in PDC and we love the Friends Bar. They are always very helpful, particularly as it is so busy some nights and we have waited for tables to be free. Its worth the wait.

The food has always been excellent and its a pleasant surprise to find that the wine is such excellent value.

It is tucked away from the main strip but once found its great value and you will got again.

Cant wait to go back next year.

“tucked away”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

went in for a couple of drinks and it was ok, we didnt have anything to eat but the food looked ok and it was really busy so im guessing its a popular place. its tucked away in a little square just off the main strip. we'll probably go back next time were there.
