Different singers every night. Good atmosphere. Staff very attentive and drink prices reasonable. You run a tab and pay at end. Gets busy. Small dance floor if you want more than just a sing along.

Called here during the day, was quiet but the views are great, just sit and take it all in. Had a great chat with the owner, a lovely man, very friendly. Would definitely call again.

Called in for lunch only to find that (although the sign outside includes 'food' and it is described as the Old Mill 'restaurant') they don't serve food. The barman did say we could have a packet of crisps but that wasn't really the lunch we...More

Popped in here a couple of times over the last week, decent beer and cider selection, Irish music in the background, OK if you are on holiday and craving a tapas and sangria free experience! Best bit is the view from inside the bar- over...More

Since my first review of the Old Mill a couple of years ago, we have visited regularly on our 2/3 holidays per year in Playa Blanca. It is still a great place for a drink, during the day, pre- dinner, or later in the evening,...More
