Airport Irish pub Max Murphys Good place for Guinness or Caffreys before getting to the airport bar that only offers singha beer in small measures. Small but fun and friendly.

I love this place! The service is great - attentive but not annoying and always a smile. We came here to watch the Australian Open final and they right away put the TV on the right channel with the sound on! Cold draft Chang beers and a shared steak and mushroom pie rounded out a fantastic visit. Thanks to all... More

Ate here twice as I was surprised by the quality of the Thai food. The cocktails were excellent also. Good beer and cider choices plus it's open to late which is a bonus

We went there twice - first for a quick lunch and then next day for dinner Thai food: crispy pork is one of those Thai dishes that is not easy to cook - it takes time to do it - thats why many restaurants actually dont make it themselves.

Just up from the pier and a great stop-off for a cold draught beer and a cocktail. Good atmosphere and a very busy pub. Locals and tourists seem to like the easy vibe. Sit out on the pavement tables to see the world go by!

Great place to escape the heat, nice cold air con and fans with a wide selection of drinks, including European beers and ciders as well as an extensive cocktail list. They do mainly western pub style food.

Tried many places on the Island in the past and I have to say that myself and family were delighted with the Sunday roast that we were served. It was not only presented well but was very tasty also! The staff were very pleasant too. Compliments to the chef 😊😊
