We had a late flight home so thought we'd have a substantial Lunch. There was a good selection of meat and we chose the Lamb (best to order when booking) You could get a choice of medium or large sizes. We chose the medium as the desserts were only 4 euro. A huge plate was brought out, complete with roasties,... More

Almost a year since we last visited and it's still as good. Simple home cooked British food at its best. The beer is great too.

Only managed to visit the place once due to the fact we were only in the area for three nights but it served the purpose very well indeed. The food we enjoyed was plentiful, hot ( some are not at some places ) and tasty and the service was slick. There are many available beers, wines and spirits available and... More

This is an excellent and well run British Pub that serves excellent food. The Barbecue evening is to be recommended with some great music provided by the landlord.

A great British pub experience on the outskirts of Burgau. Basic menu with good portions. Good beer selection, sport on multiple TV's. Barbeque night well worth a visit. Marvelous hosts Pat and Rotten. Ignore any bad reviews, it's a pub ! They do beer, food and sport. Not a five star restaurant.... Thank goodness it's here.

After living in Algarve for 3 months we found this place on a bike ride. Glad we did. Shows English football matches and does a fab Sunday roast.

Delicious food in hearty portions at really reasonable prices. A warm welcome from the staff and funny banter with the landlord. Would recommend to any Brits visiting the area! Ideally placed for some proper grub after a day on beautiful Burgau beach. Lively in the evenings with frequent entertainment.. Definitely worth a visit!

Thank nicky b
