Popped in here to watch the wolves palace game. Chap behind the bar (blues fan) was great and found the game no problem eventually putting it on main screen for us. Nice Amstel and wife enjoyed the cider. All other staff very friendly and we enjoyed our brief stay here for the game.
Speaking to some people in our hotel they came here most nights after the hotel bars shut. Would definitely return.

I have been going to Lanzarrote now for about ten years and allways wanted to visit this place but never got around to it.This year I did visit one evening and now wish I had stayed away.They were advertising a live entertainment act to start at 8.30pm so we went in about 8pm.There were a few people outside but no one inside so we got a good table at the front.The whole place was very dirty and the disabled toilet sliding door was absolutely worn out and gould not be closed so everyone could see anyone inside.We ordered drinks and were served fairly quickly.The beer was absolutely terrible.It was buy one get one free but whats the point when it was not drikable so I went on coke.First time I have ever refused beer.Happy hour finished and ssome one told me to try a fresh beer as they change the barrel to better beer at the end of happy hour.Yes it was fine.8.30pm came and went with no live act.A man appeared and said that there would be a quiz.When asked about the live act he said it would start at 9pm.At 9.30pm the quiz started.Questiones asked very slowly then repeated then a one minute interval before the next question.The quiz took about an hour.Then half an hour of music before marking the results.Then another half an hour while the man sorted who had won.Then came the answers with a minute gap in between.The live act did start about 1040pm.Ten minutes into the act and an interval of 20 minutes or so befor the second part.The whole thing was a con to get people in and keep them there.To realy rub salt in the wounds the act was not the one advertised.We intended to eat there but gave it a miss.There are far better bars in Costa Tequis.

Good job there was a happy hour on here cos the 3 euros a pint for the crap beer was a rip off, on top of this I got a 5 euro whisky and mixer for the wife which was a short measure of crap whisky from a miserable baldy guy behind the bar !
Other places were cheaper with better drinks !

Shockingly bad pub. Embracing all of the Scumbag Jeremy Kyle mentality of Britain at the moment. I really don’t care ‘who is from as Scotland?’ ‘’Who is from England?’ ‘Who is from Wales’ and similar shoutiness - just shut up as nobody cares or wants to hear this crap and you are just after cheap cheers and ‘likes’
This might have been popular 30 years ago but the world has moved on and this is so dated now. If this is the bars version of entertainment it’s time for us to move on.
We bought drinks but quickly left due to the constant din and shoutiness emanating from the compare. My friend had a headache after 10 mins in the pub.
The compare really does a disservice to this bar and drags the atmosphere and ambiance down
Lots of mobility scooters parked outside and everyone smoking added to the general scuminess of the bar. This is probably the most downmarket pub on the island and makes the average Weatherspoons look like the Ritz!
I’m so pleased we called in for drinks, as we planned to eat here the following night and god knows what horrible diseases we might have caught had we eaten here.
