Pub to watch the Ashes

Staying at the Ouratlantico for 3 nights from 22nd August, can anyone recommend a decent pub close by that will be showing the Cricket? Somewhere with a few big TV's and cheap beer would be ideal! Also, roughly how much is beer during the day? Do the bars have offers on?

Thanks in advance

You might be unlucky with the morning session as many bars don't open until lunchtime. Then of course there will be football on from 1245, so sorry to say chances of anyone putting cricket on all day are pretty remote

I'm surprised by that! Aren't there any sports bars nearby? Do the pubs not open early to serve breakfasts etc?

We open at 9am but dont have sky sports. most bars should be able to offer footie on one screen and cricket on another. rockline bar is nearby and sure they will be open - we have had plenty of cricket fans in the last week so know they are watching nearby

As you come out of your apartments, turn left and head towards the Oura Praia Hotel - you just keep walking until you come to the 5 palms roundabout - it will only take you a few minutes.

You will see on your left a big sports bar called Rockline (it has a statue of a rock singer outside so you cant miss it.) Rockline is always open for any early televised sport. Enjoy!

Good news. I don't get to that end of town much and certainly not that early in the morning.

Might have to, if things are going to be as mad as they were today.

Is it really busy at the moment then Cubsur? I'm really looking forward to our visit, never been before and not really sure what to expect! As long as the sun shines, the beer is cold and the resort is safe and clean I'm sure it'll be great!
