From the second I stepped into this pub I got a strange feeling of deja vu and nostalgia. Maybe I was a 20th century English pub-patron in a past life. I'll take it.

Cheguei a vir aqui algumas vezes com um grupo de amigos, sempre nos reuníamos as terças-feira em lugares diferentes da cidade e pela localização este foi...more
