We have been going to Alvor for the past few years and we always call to Hickeys for a few. Nice relaxed atmosphere here where people sit and chat. Decent drink at decent prices. Well worth a visit.

Yes I would say this pub is mostly couples and groups of people. The crowd there were very friendly as well as the owner and bar staff so I would go and have a drink there, you might enjoy it
