just returned from 2wk holiday, went to the paradise bar on friday 12th oct. asked the owner if he was showing the rugby league grand final? he said yes he would show it, we were the only people in there he had a drink with us seemed quite friendly, so we decided to make a day of it on the saterday watch englands soccer qualifier, then the rugby league, followed by england rugby union, when we arrived it was full we watched the soccer, he put the rugby on then with 15 mins to go he just switched it over to the preview of the rugby union which still had 30mins before ko we ask him why he just said we are watching the build up now go outside and watch it there,my wife asked if he would change her drink his reply was i did not make and walked away,his attitude towards our party was disgusting, as to say we found somewhere else to watch the other games shakers bar, and was made quite welcome, both my brother and his wife and my wife and myself have bought properties in nc but this man will never get another penny out of us wonder if anybody else has had any dealings with this man?

Raybo,



I have met a few rude publicans in my time, usually drink to much and have a low tolerance towards customers demands.



Maybe he did not have much between his posts!



Reason for the drink change? was the glass chipped etc????



Cheers,



T.

Raybo, sounds like he had the "Watering Can" out to dilute the drink. (alleged)

I can assure you I will not be spending any of my hard earned lager vouchers in there.



It seems to be that a some of these places that are well frequented, fall foul to greedy landlords/owners who have no conscious when it comes to taking peoples money. One attitude is that they feel most people are on holiday and have a few bob and can take it or leave it. Where was he from???



That's why this forum works with people giving the good and bad on places to go etc.



Hopefully we are going to be over in the spring and will visit some of the places that have been given a good rating and will pass by the others.



You never know we may meet some of the forum users!

hi there guys

all i can say these kind of people a few and far between in north cyprus,

there is good and bad in any country even in the u.k especially where i used to live in london

the best thing is dont let this affect you and your family-friends view on this lovely place (mean n cyprus) even thou the owner was a idiot (probably lost all his money the night before or his wife has left)

regards

ukturk



p.s paul i cant belive that there is no attitude in the hare and hounds after a load of pints on a fri/sat night unless its a grandad pub!!!!!!

L.O.L L.O.L

Hi All,

I'm an ex customer of the Paradise, I got cheesed off with the two tear pricing the manager has, one price for regulars(if he has any) and double the price for tourists, then add more if the footballs on. Why he just cant put a price list up and charge everyone the same God only knows. Plenty of better places to watch sport, so spread the word, keep out of the place, and let the miserable sod suffer.

We went to the Paradise, to watch the Mancfc Game, his prices are listed on the Bar, Stop giving wrong info. His prices are really Good.Drank Large Glasses of Gin & Tonic all Night, for only 5.00 ytl. Do yourself a favour go down and meet this Owner, he will do anything to help you, especially when someone is watching a Game on 1 Screen, he would be prepared to show anouther sport on the Second Screen.



Robo.

I do not understand you, their is a charge of 5.00 ytl for non members. Free to Members for using the Pool.

The Paradise Bar is the first place were we go to watch Sport once we arrive in Cyprus on our Holidays. We have now become very friendly with the Owner, he always buys us Free Drinks, and always remembers are Names.

He even is prepared to show Sports at 5.00 am in the morning, We watched the Hatton Fight there. He had plenty of Customers Even at 05.00 am in the morning.



Dixie.

The Paradise has Price Lists up.It is on the Bar. Do yourself a Favour go down their, and check the Bar before you write wrong info to members on this Forum.

Its been over a year since I was in the place and no prices were to be seen then, I asked Grumpy why I was charged different prices for the same beer on two different visits to the bar and asked to see a list which he did'nt have.

So as Nige said, I voted with my feet.

Angel & Mancfc, you may have caught him on a good week, must have taken his medication or managed to fleece a couple of unsuspecting tourists.

It is your Choice.

But i found this place clean and very hospitable and all Food and Drink prices are Listed on the Bar. Very Resonable Prices. As i said we were Drinking Large Gin & Tonics all night for 5.00 ytl, plus Free Crisps and Nuts. It looks like the Medication worked, he was very busy that Night. Everyone was a Local, i will definetly use it again and reccomend this place to all My friends.

We visted the Paradise again today, to watch the Formula 1, it was packed. Everyone was a regular who lived on the Island, We checked the prices, his prices were very good, all spirits with mixer for only 5.00 ytl in a Large Glass.



Robo. Stop giving false info on this Notice board. As you have posted a message on the 20/10/07 and reopening again on the 18/07/08, so it looks like you are either a nearby Bar Owner and so jealous that the Owners of Paradise has plenty of Customers.



Spoke to the Owner, told him about this Notice board and he said he has the Powers to drop all his Drinks to 50p a Glass so beware.

Have been to The Paradise many times and have always found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The prices ARE on the bar and they are reasonable.

Hi i am Dave. Been to the Paradise many times, i always sit at the Bar. One hand My Efes Glass, the other hand a bottle of Efes, and straight in front of Me at the Bar is the BAR PRICES.

Looking at the Bar Prices, they are NORMAL, REASONABLE. I have to stay he does get a good crowd in their when the Sport is on, and plenty of same old faces. It is like a club, everone nows one anouther.

What i like about the Paradise is the picture quality on his 60 inch HD Pioneer Plasma T.V. Thats first class.

The staff are very friendly and very helpful.
