Popped in for a drink while walking off the Christmas and New Years excess. Very few people in although still during the holiday period and in the middle of lunch time.The girl behind the bar was friendly. We were disappointed to see a mass of cigarette butts by the main entrance. They were obviously from the night before but surely... More

The burgers were eye poppingly good to look at at tasted equally as good! We wanted somewhere the whole family could eat including the dog. The Black sheep was great, the staff were really friendly and food came quickly. Would defo go back.

We visited this bar last year (tapas style menu) & the menu has changed since then. Limited menu but still good quality & tasty food. Great for cocktails & good beer choices. Large seating area outside so great for a warm summers evening!

The Black Sheep has become my favourite place for drinks on the island straight away after my first visit. Friendly staff, nice cocktails and even very tasty mocktails custom made for the designated driver! Very chilled out feel when you hang out in the lounge area, I've personally never been to the dancefloor area since I just prefer a nice... More

Decided to stop here for lunch as the outdoor area looked lovely. Advertising Sunday lunch added to the attraction. Hugely disappointed, food was only average and very small portion sizes. Watered down gravy and expensive! Shame as the bar area and outside area were lovely. Food a big let down. Sadly wouldn't return or recommend
