Whatever game you are after, if it is on TV, they will find it for you. The drinks are plentiful and cheap, and the Sunday roasts are huge. Proper pub abroad.

We booked a table for 8 for Sunday Roast. The food was served promptly and was delicious with plenty of gravy. The puddings were good portions, home made and again delicious. I cannot fault this pub - and would definitely recommend a visit.

Although in Portugal, we all felt like a traditional Sunday Lunch. Very good, Good choice of dishes, including chicken pork and lamb. Last visited 15 years ago, felt just as comfortable. Owner on form as usual.
