This is the little pub where Oliver Reed died and I must say, he had good taste in pubs! This is a little gem, full of character and with the best pint of Cisk I tasted.

Ollie's last pub. Lots of character. Football on the TV and drinks cheap. Two tables outside and a central location. Fine for a quick stop, friendly chilled atmosphere. Only seats 24. Projector, more seats and a toilet upstairs. Whole room covered in graffiti from visitors. Pretty disgusting in my opinion but I expect for some it adds to the character. Worth a visit.

This was the pub in which Oliver Reed spent his last hour, it is small inside enough seating for approx 30 but lovely and cool ....air conditioning worked well....there is also a few tables and chairs outside. Prices were the cheapest we found in Valetta for 2 pints. It used to be a favourite pub of the royal navy personal as lots of memorabilia.....well worth a visit.

As we'd arrived in Malta late we ate at about 10pm and then found ourselves wandering around like the incorrigible Brits we are, trying to find a drink in the city centre when all the sensible Maltese had gone home. We found this place and I almost didn't feel like I was away at all, but in a good way, with a huge selection of random, retro spirits on offer and far cheaper drinks than at home. My Passoa and lemonade went down well. You won't get much real ale in Malta but that seems to be because of prohibitive prices. Very friendly barman (owner?) who was happy to have a chat with everyone at the bar and the best bit - the utterly obsessive Oliver Reed references everywhere and a visitors book, mainly referencing Oliver Reed. So yeah, if you like Oliver Reed, or had just forgotten what a legend he was and hadn't given it any thought recently, go to The Pub. The only thing is is the toilet is a bit manky (but what fun getting up there in this tiny building).

Okay as a bar, small inside & outside. Only one toilet for everyone as I could see. There's a lot of history to this place. Well worth the visit taking your time to look at the memorabilia on the walls around the bar.
