Gibraltar Good Food Guide
CANNON BAR AND RESTAURANT
After spending a lovely morning wandering around Gibraltar’s bustling array of
duty free shops, Dean and I felt a little bit peckish and stumbled across a delightful
little pub just off main street.
The Cannon Bar and Restaurant is tucked away up a shady lane off Mainstreet.
It had been a very hot day and we chose to sit in a shaded outside table.
It is a typical English style pub inside. The bar propped up by a couple of locals
watching football on the television.
I asked for a couple of menus and went to wash my hands.
The toilet area was clean enough.
After a couple of minutes a waiter came to take our order. He was polite and courteous.
We both decided to eat a small ploughman’s lunch, as we were too hot for a heavier meal.
Drinks and food were served quickly and we tucked into a delightful plate of
Cheese, pork pie, pickles, salad and crusty bread and butter.
If I had to criticise anything, I would have liked to have had a few different types
of cheese, rather than just a HUGE chunk of cheddar.
But at £3.95 I feel that we had great value for money.
I would certainly visit the Cannon Bar and Restaurant again.
It is certainly not glamorous but it is an English Pub and serves up exactly what is promises. Looking forward to cooler months when I could order some home cooked choices, but in the extreme heat ploughman’s was
a good choice.

GIBRALTAR EVENTS REVIEW
Dean and I have had two separate dealings with this shop over the last 6 months.
Firstly we bought a multi region DVD player.
The assistant was helpful and polite, not overly pushy with sales patter.
We selected the player we wanted and called back after eating lunch giving them time to box up the player.
We were happy with the service provided
We also visited the shop earlier today as we wanted to buy a new camera.
At the start of Mainstreet we had enquired about buying a camera, not sure which model to go for Dean had asked the assistant for some advice and not had much luck. Basically he was given the hard sell without being given any relevant information.
When entering Galaxy the staff were more than happy to spend time talking to and advising us.
I went of to to a little clothes shopping and came back around 15 minutes later to find Dean and the assistant with 3 different models out on the counter.
Dean was encouraged to go outside the shop to try out all the cameras taking shots of the passers by.
All in all I would say the sale took around 45 minutes and the assistant was attentive and extremely informative and helpful.
He arranged a great price for us on the model we picked and gave us discount on the carrying case and the SD memory card.
I highly recommend this shop to anyone wanting to invest in a camera. The staff are knowledgeable about the products they are selling.
