This tiny little pub with a massive heart is the place to be , whether its for something to eat or just a pint , situated at the rear of the Il Mercato , a nice relaxing British bar which serves excellent food and beer to match far better than the above mentioned . keep up the good work many thanks to the two ladies (sorry didn't get your names) and Nigel....Cheers :))

We went for the 20LE Friday BBQ, my wife and daughter loved.

This place would appeal for someone who loves an authentic British place, the buffet was British type, chile con carne, potato wedges, curry, sausages, rice and a selection of fresh salads and other things.

They also had some Egyptian Kofkas.

I give the place a 4 star and 5 star for value for money. I feel they could draw more business if they had a selection of Egyptian style dips to go with the bread rather than mayonnaise and ketchup.

The music on that night was 80's style, Freddy Mercury, Tina Turner etc however the DJ made it clear that people could have requests, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and the music fit to the theme of the pub.

This place is authentic British with local British residents. If you miss the UK this place is for you, if you are after Egyptian music and food this place is not.

Summary: Well worth the visit, excellent value for money you will regret not coming sooner.
This place also seems friendly and helpful towards people who might have extra needs due to challenges or disability.

We visited this bar 3 times during our 2 week stay and our big regret is that we didn't find it sooner!! Great atmosphere and the ideal spot for watching a bit of UK sport. Unfortunately we missed the BBQ nights but will certainly return if we holiday again in the area. Very friendly staff and I would definitely recommend it as being worth a visit.

A bit out of the way but well worth searching out. Very friendly establishment where both staff and customers really make you welcome. English football on the tv with English commentary , ice cold beer and although I didn't eat here I saw someone's Sunday lunch and it looked delicious. The ex pat's that frequent this bar are a mine of info if like me your an Egyptian first timer, can't recommend it highly enough.
