I decided to go because the website photo showed Branston Pickle and HP sauce available in the Deli section. Anyway, I can't give a review because the place was shut when we arrived. "Shut Sundays and Mondays" is what we were told. Owner, please update your website with opening hours. At least we found it, after about 45 minutes of... More

Hello. We have no more time for TripAdvisor or Google Maps. We just recently started closing on Sundays and Mondays due to no customers. It is so demoralizing to expect staff to stand and wait for customers that dont come. We are just 700kl from the main hiway. We are not miles away from any place. Google maps also show... More

Visited here after reading reviews the place was completely empty and don't think there's ever any real customers probably because it's miles and miles from anywhere. However girl serving was pleasant and it was very clean. Not sure how true other reviews are to be honest.

If you have any question about other reviews why dont you contact the reviewers directly. TA allow you to do that that. Sice June bookings to the Philippines have fell off the end of the world. More

The bar is located in the basement of drifters apartelle. Whilst staying in drifters I have often stopped in for a meal and cold beer. Staff is friendly and service is always with a smile. Food served is great, good sized and tasty portions. My favourite dish is their fish and chips!

Several flat screen TVs available, and the owner has taken the trouble to subscribe to premium channels that include ASN network, and some others for sports. This means that US sports (football, baseball, hockey, basketball) are shown, not just live, but repeated over the week. Not all games, I would say at least 6 US football games are shown a... More

The bar area had a nice selection of whiskeys and spirits. The only beer on tap was San Miguel served in half pint handle measurements. Imported beers and ales in cans. English breakfast was bad: soggy eggs, sausage processed, tasted of cardboard, tomato was green, too much oil on the mushrooms. When does potato and cucumber come to be in... More

Meat pies are freshly baked when ordered. Bedding ton, Guiness, etc is poured in a fresh cold glass every time. Yes it's a little hard to find once you get in the subdivision, but worth the extra 27 Pesos (.60 cents) the taxi will take to honestly find. The property is well. Groomed, pool is clean and wait staff is... More

A good range of drinks are available and the food is excellent. Had the bangers and mash day one, fish and chips day two.

Got to have my Guiness (I know, I know - it is not a BRITISH beer). Even though it was not on tap and came out of a can, I still enjoyed it. Had fun cutting up with the staff while there.
