Amazing little pub covered with news paper clips of Oliver Reed. Certainly a spot worth a visit if you find yourself in Malta. The island is stunning.

Probably not one for the kids, but if you want a proper pub complete with a WC to make your eyes water, well this is it!!. Add in the Ollie Reed connection and just go for a beer!

Nice pub to sit outside but inside smelt of urine. The toilets were vile. Staff were very friendly and the area is lovely.

This " Pub" is a legend, an institution and not a snackbar, sorry Joan.

It's not really that sort of pub. It's very small and a bit like going back in time.
