It's a family run restaurant, from Luigi's warm welcome to the home made Cypriot specialities using mum's secret recipes and the lovely touch of complimentary seasonal fruit, grown in dads orchard, that they'll bring to your table for afters ...
It's been over twenty years since my very good friend Leo opened New Horizon and now son Stephanos is at the helm it's just seems to be getting better and better ! It's a kid friendly pub so families are welcome and they'll give some drawing things to the little'ns to keep them happy and Stephanos promises some really special events planned through the season ...
The Village Inn is traditionally British, from the beer garden out back to the golf society you're welcome to join, and the pub grub is just awesome !
It's a family run business and a more International eaterie would be hard to find, with Mediterranean, Greek, Italian and Indian cuisines to add to the traditional Cypriot choices on the menu, Andonis calls it Multi Cultural Fusion ... that says it all !!!
Fat Mama’s is one of those special places that’s so good you’ll just keep going back, so naturally after 25 years it gets really busy every night with bookings not accepted after 7 pm, but don’t worry, if you have to wait to be seated you can enjoy a drink from a well-stocked bar. Mixing one of my favourite Mojitos or try one of their intoxicating cocktails, and at 2 for the price of 1 during happy hours!
... we have created a menu, traditional but not, it’s totally unique, partly influenced by her yiayia, a fusion of Greek, Cypriot and Spanish cuisine, but she assured me none of the dishes you’ll find anywhere else, because they are the creation of their imagination, using always fresh produce, everything is cooked to order, nothing is prepared and always around her flavours and essences of Cyprus, that she uses to compliment every dish … oh, and if she had her way, she would change the menu every day” … So do look out for their daily specials and make sure you leave room for dessert!
The pub looks just like a country pub should it's all beer garden out front, with wooden decking and terraces and huge umbrellas and sails and crimson flowers ...
Coming outta Shepherds Bush in London, Chris with over 30 years experience, and catering in his blood, following in his father's footsteps, in 2012 he finally sealed the deal to buy the old Banana Cabaret Bar in Kissonerga, then, better known for its sauciness than its sauces 😉 .... tbh, Sonny's looks good the moment you arrive, and then, it just gets better!
Chris said, ''we just came on holiday, decided to move and bought the pub ...". I've heard that before a few times ... but these guys have just blended in like they've been here for years ... I expect it's got something to do with the traditional Cypriot Hospitality that oozes from the family and crew.
There's a bar up in Bar Street Notorious for it's attitude and quality drinks ... Notorious for the sound system and it's music policy and just as Notorious when it comes to age policy. Good friend of mine and owner Phytos of ex Club Media fame, assures me you'll find the 20 plus party crew here ! That's why it's Bar Street's finest !!!
