The new owner has turned this quaint getaway into a must experience. We stayed for 6 gloreous evenings and rang in 2017 with some of the most interesting people. Great people, comfortable accommodations, and gorgeous views make this a destination we will definitely put on or list of places to visit again.

Please know that this is not a pub in the sense you are thinking of when searching for an English Pub. It is a lovely property but no worth the worry of trying to find the place. It is the personal property of a very nice man who enjoys beer.

You won't find Black Sheep Pub advertised anywhere in Nosara - I knew about it only because of the four reviews on TripAdvisor. In fact, when I mentioned the pub to a Tico guide, he said Black Sheep only opens four times a year for parties and I wouldn't be able to get in. Maybe that adds to the feeling... More

We had the great fortune of visiting the Black Sheep pub while traveling in Guiones Beach, and boy did we luck out. This is a total gem of a pub nestled in the beautiful hills of Santa Marta with stunning views, good quality draught beer and some excellent company. Joe and Helena the owners were incredibly welcoming and their pub... More

Helena and Joe are the owners, hosts and brewsters of the Black Sheep Pub; a venue not to be missed during your visit to Nosara!!... An adventurous mission to find the Black Sheep and get up to Finca Dona Cielo, taking a local as a guide is suggested as makes the mission less of an undertaking... Helena and Joe are... More

The owner/publican is really friendly and runs this more as a hobby. The atmosphere is amazing - you'd think you were in the heart of London from the interior. A great selection of ales and barley wine. The local breweries were even contacted for news on anything new or interesting by the owner/publican. If you love pubs and you want... More

The drive up to it is a bumpy one, but once you are there, you will not believe how cool this Scottish/English Pub is - with relics from hundreds of pubs world-wide and many delicious beers on tap, Joe and Helena have brought another culture into the Country with the Black Sheep Pub!

The owner of this pub has put his heart and soul into it. It's a little out of the way, but the views of the peninsular are breathtaking. Add some barley wine and you're in heaven.

You should definitely visit this old english pub in Nosara! They have a big wooden bar imported from England, with all the little details that make you feel like you've just walked into and old english pub, it's amazing! Make sure you bring a guide or someone who has been there many times before, because if you don't know the... More
