Top British Pubs on Holidays in the Canary Islands

By Steve Alexander

If you're looking for a home away from home, take a look at our list of the islands' best English and Irish bars in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands are incredibly popular with Brits every year, so it's not surprise that you'll find a variety of English and Irish-owned drinking holes, as well as hotels and restaurants here too.

With its idyllic location on Compostella Beach in Tenerife's Playa de las Americas, Macks Bar is a great place to while away the hours with a very reasonably priced pint of San Miguel. It is much more than a room with a view though - with homemade cooking, an impressive cocktail menu and live sport on the big screens also on offer.

With food served daily from 9am till 9pm, you will have plenty of time to refuel after a busy day of sunbathing. Why not watch the sunset here on the outside terrace with a refreshing cocktail in hand or better yet a delicious serving of traditional apple and blackberry pie or beer-battered fish and chips? Many a hangover has also been cured by the impressive Sunday breakfast.

For a home away from home during your holiday in Gran Canaria look no further than Big Bens too. This popular family-friendly English bar is suitably located in Playa del Ingles and is open every day from 9am till late. As well as roast dinners and classic full English breakfasts, customers can expect live sport, weekly quizzes and competitions.

You can even catch up on your favourite soaps if you're really missing home. There is a relaxed, friendly vibe here with Mel, Tracey and Mark at the helm, as well as a number of returning regulars. Helping to get the party started in an evening are a range of cabaret acts including a regular Diana Ross tribute show.
