All major sports shown on numerous screens with a lovely outside sun terrace. Very sad to see that the business was up for sale but hopefully the family will still be running... More

British food, cheap prices, only down side is that the woman serving needs a volume button as she is very loud which is not really good all of the time :)

Ate lunch here everyday as it was just down the hill from our hotel. Staff friendly and attentive . Had lunches of sandwiches, salads or toasties all of which were tasty and well priced. Other half enjoyed the San Miguel in frosted glasses! A good place to stop off for lunch or a drink.
