The best thing about a bargain holiday in Spain, is that no matter where you go, you’re never too far from a typical English pub packed with fellow Brits. Here’s a round up of the best places to go if you’re missing the homeland.
The Fox and Hound in Costa Dorada is owned and run by proprietors from England and Scotland in the town of Salou. They are open from 9am until late, and offer traditional English breakfasts, evening meals, and a wide selection of English beers on draught. Or perhaps Jack Daniel’s Place will entice you, with a choice of Italian and British food served on their outdoor terrace. A recently opened art deco restaurant, Jack Daniel’s Place welcomes children and large parties who are looking for an English dining experience.
Costa Del Sol in southern Spain is probably most famous for the towns of Torremolinos, and Marbella where the rich and famous come to party and unwind. The region is home to many British expatriates and other English-speaking nationalities, and offers a range of English radio stations for you to discover what’s happening in the area.
In such a popular tourist destination, with around five million people visiting Benidorm alone, it’s hardly surprising that there are so many British themed establishments in Costa Blanca. The towns of Moraira, Torrevieja, Altea and San Fulgencio all offer restaurants and bars showing British television and serving popular British cuisine.
Churchill’s Traditional English Pub in Benidorm is the place to go for sports fans, presenting live coverage of major football and rugby matches on panoramic screens. Other Vincent’s pubs include the family-friendly Village Pub showing British television, The Plaza offering sandwiches, toasties and baguettes, and the White Horse, which serves wine and cheese from 1pm. So wherever you end up going on your holiday, you’re never too far away from home — just with better weather and beaches.
