Like a proper little English pub, quite old fashioned with a good range of draught beers. The staff are friendly and service very good. Shows the football. We never ate here and the one drawback for me is that people actually smoke in the bar so there is that constant smell.

I ordered Peri peri chicken and my partner ordered fish and chips on the ala carte menu.

I love a good English pub and pint. Having the best view on it's terrace is an added bonus for watching the sun go down on the coast. Great great service...Sometimes draught Old Spekled Hen, comfortable banquets to watch two tvs with different sports........Really what more do you need. My favourite Pub in Portugal...Mr. D

Simple menu. Limited choices. Luis is such a warm and friendly man. Prices were very low. Views are beautiful.

Went there for a drink with my sister and friend one evening. Meals are only available at breakfast or lunch time. Really enjoyed sitting on the small balcony overlooking the bay and chatting to both locals and Swedes. Definitely worth a stop off.

Went with my sister and friend and sat outside on their small terrace with a beautiful view of the sunset over the sea. We didn't eat so can't comment in the food but had a pint chatting happily to a local. A very pleasant earlt evening and highly recommend. May find it difficult to get seat outside in high season
