About
A friendly, welcoming bar offering a wide range of menus, serving food and drinks from morning till night. Decorated in a quirky but tasteful manner, there are plenty of talking points to keep you amused. By showing all major sporting events as well as having a pool table & dart board (and a variety of board games), it is ensured that there is plenty to do. There is a great, fun-filled quiz night every Sunday evening, an event that is always well attended, with having fun the main item on the agenda. Delicious food & drinks at great prices are served either inside the large bar or on each of the two terraces, with the rear terrace (Times Square) proving to be a real sun trap. No trip to La Cala
