Pleasant bar.
Feb 2018 • Friends
There is nothing to complain about in The First & Last, Service was fine, drinks prices and measures are reasonable, the bar and the toilets are very clean, a very welcome heater provides some much needed warmth for anyone wishing to sit outside.
Nightly entertainment is provided by the owner , John, as I mentioned in a previous review although he has a very pleasant voice I wouldn’t go to listen to him every night, however compared to some of the entertainment provided within the Matagorda Commercial Centre John is by far the best on offer.
Bar service was provided by Lynn who was efficient and friendly.
I noticed a “For Sale” sign whilst visiting the bar, I wish them good luck in whatever they are moving on to.

Great atmosphere
Nov 2017 • Couples
Spent a few nights in the bar lat week listening to John (JCRyan)and enjoying the friendly atmosphere. Good pint of Peroni and real Smirnoff vodka ( not the Roturkokov stuff) bar staff excellent and bar is definitely worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.
Also tried the Auld Triangle but they had no Guinness on Thursday (Irish bar - no Guinness ? )

Our wee Lanzarote local !
Jan 2017 • Couples
My partner and I have been coming here for a winter week for the last 7 years, and are booking up shortly for this winter.
We always make a point of popping in several times during our week, the craic is great, we have regularly met familiar faces from previous visits. Always nice to catch up. John keeps the party going with sing along music, Lyn keeps the glasses topped up. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

correct name for this pub
Sep 2017 • Solo
absolutely awful service in this pub,it has the correct name because it was the first and last time i went anywhere near it.
the attitude from the women behind the bar was just shocking ,asked for the Celtic game but she was showing another game which was fair enough however a few people came in to ask for it then walked out,i moved to another pub but when my wife went in to look for me the bar woman was bad mouthing me plenty other places to drink

As always, I find it difficult to respond to ANONYMOUS REVIEW. We have limited TV facilities, and a decision has to be made, as to what is best for the bar, You cant please all the people, all the time. And if you want to move to a different bar, fair enough. As to the Bar Woman, bad mouthing you, I cannot see why, As I said, ANONYMOUS REVIEW. ¿¿¿ We have been targeted before !!!

Great experience again, well worth a visit
Jul 2017 • Couples
After 28 days in Matagorda we always ended up in this pub by 22.00 hrs just in time for John to start his nightly performance which is well worth a visit. In the time we were there it was nice to see people with all inclusive wrist bands having a good time away from there hotels; just goes to show you people like to drink out of glasses instead of small plastic cup and hear live music.
Lyn always gives everyone a warm welcome and she makes an honest gin and tonic, local beer is good as well as the draft Guinness that is on sale.
All in all each night is a different good experience and very enjoyable.

We would recommend a visit.
