After reading reviews for Friends we had to go, was it worth it? Well we went back twice up that bloody hill and met some lovely people, Canadians, Scottish and Scousers. Lisa’s personality infects her bar making it a feel good place to be.

Friends bar is a relaxed, happy and busy little bar. Lisa is a fantastic host. She’s chatty, friendly and ‘on it’. Love the ‘craic’ at Friends Bar.

We just happened to come upon Friends Bar one evening and what an absolute delight it became. Lisa is an absolute star and it was privilege to also meet Philomena. Looking forward to October, Corfu ain't got a look in :-)
