Themed English pub in a very humid environment, lots of fun with decent food too. Nothing too ostentatious, which can make a welcome change in this city.

You feel like entering an hash try, and the aircon is not working apart a couple of removable units placed around the table. Service is slow and offered without passion or interest: why are they still open? Last time for me.More
