  • Crown and Lion
This large, booming pub is seemingly always busy with thirsty TECOM types. For British expats, it’s like you never left old Blightly – table service, indoor smoking and sprited covers band aside, that is. This Byblos bar fits snugly into the UK pub genre, offering a solid approximation of hearty pub grub, a decent range of draft hops, live sports and a pool table. A lot more grit and soul than many over faux-European joints – for a homesick soul, this is by no means a bad spot to enjoy a quiet one. Crown and Lion

    I’m a regular to this bar to watch the sport as there is lots of choice with each TV showing different games from the English Premier League.
    As for the remarks from Ben 23rd April I take umbrage to the fact that he calls the people who visit this bar Messed up and trashy??? Who does this guy think he is? Some of the staff do look A little miserable but once you make the effort to chat most are friendly, maybe Ben you don’t possess the art of conversation? The staff here work 12 hour shifts 6 days a week so I guess it takes its toll after a while. The bar is indeed Smokey and maybe a couple of extractor fans being installed would do the trick. So overall I do think the large number of messed up people who keep going back time and time again can’t all be wrong.
    So Ben you stick to Nelsons in the Rotana and do us all a favour :)

    Smokey and crowded with televiosions blasting a diifferent sport on each screen = one big noise.
    Waitresses rarely smile. Food is great (typical british grub)
    Bouncers are AWFUL!!!!! They stop a person from sitting with their legs crossed. When trying to resolve this... we were met with giggles and smirks from all them. Wont reccomend this place at all except if you fancy having your night ruined!

    The ambience was very nice fit for every british people and the band was lead to the rythm!....i think this is the coolest place to have but as i observed the russian waitress didnt have concern to help and train the newly trainee waitress especially filipina and didnt intend to ORIENT the new staff with the drinks and everything!..unfortunately the russians just help themselves fellow russian.......so bad how i have seen this i hope you will able to recognize these things a senior has an obligation to teach the newly staff,am i right?!.................

    Good food and plenty of space but always noisy and smokey. Some of the staff don't appear very cheerful or as well trained on customer service as staff in other bars / restaurants.
