It’s that time again. World Cup fever is gripping everyone. People who don’t usually show any interest get caught up in the excitement and find themselves screaming at a TV! Whether you are supporting Germany, Brazil, Russia or Saudi Arabia, there is nothing better than a nice cold beer and perhaps some snacks to go with it when watching a match. If the beer and snacks grabbed your attention half as much as world cup fever has then a fantastic place to go is to The Meeting Pub.
On the Finikoudes stretch, the family run pub can cater to almost everybody’s needs. It is very family friendly but take care if you go with the kids as they’ll empty your wallet devouring the milkshakes and ice-cream!
One thing you notice when entering is the wide screen TVs dotted around the pub so that no matter where you sit, you will always have a good view of the match.
The tables and chairs in the outside area are akin to garden furniture but it works somehow and gives it a homely feeling. More importantly, they were comfortable too. Contributing to the homely feeling is the wooden décor inside the pub. One thing that struck me as I approached the bar was the amount of taps they have! This isn’t your regular pub that serves two types of beer! If memory serves me well, there were at least nine. How’s that for variety?
Despite having heard plenty about the jumbo sized pork chop and toying with the idea of also getting something to eat, I noticed somebody having the English breakfast and my mind was made up. Proper English sausages, perfectly made eggs and crispy bacon meant it was an absolute steal at only €5!
If you get to the pub before a match and the beer, food and beach view are still not enough for you, there is a pool table to keep you occupied!
A modest and welcoming pub with a fantastic selection of beers and good food at very reasonable prices by the sea, it’s hard to find a reason why you shouldn’t go. I highly recommend it.
