Set in the heart of Los Cristianos' Apolo Centre, The Merry Monk stands as a testament to the timeless charm of an 'Old English' country pub, sun-kissed and spirited. A family-run gem with over 30 years of history, this beloved bar has become a second home to both locals and tourists, offering a warm embrace to all who step through its doors.

Lovely relaxing bar. Nice atmosphere.

Could spend all night here. Best pub on the island.

My favourite bar in Los Cristianos!

Fabulous bar, amazing decor, excellent prices and super friendly owner.

Love this bar, it's very homely, and the owner is a laugh a minute.

The Merry Monk is owned and run by James, who has carefully recreated a slice of England under the Tenerife sun. The bar's ambiance is a fusion of traditional British aesthetics and contemporary comfort. It's beautifully decorated, with an immaculate cleanliness that's as refreshing as its drinks. The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming, making every visitor feel like they've reunited with a long-lost friend.

True to its roots, The Merry Monk offers a familiar touch of home for British expatriates and tourists. Its decor, diverse range of drinks, and overall comfort evoke the quintessential British pub experience. However, The Merry Monk is more than just a nod to nostalgia. It surprises and delights with its unique Tenerife Entertainment Lounge. This mini-theatre, complete with a stage and comfy terraced seating for 100, transforms the bar into a hub of excitement and entertainment. Whether you're here to catch the latest Premier League football match, immerse yourself in a rugby game, or follow a thrilling cricket match, the huge projector screen and additional TV monitors ensure you won't miss a moment of action. And for Leeds United fans, every match is shown live with sound – a true haven for supporters of The Whites.

The Merry Monk isn't just about sports, though; it's a versatile venue that caters to a variety of interests. It hosts private functions and parties, making it the perfect choice for celebrating those special moments. The bar prides itself on its reasonable drink prices, ensuring that a great night out doesn't have to break the bank. From refreshing cocktails to live music and quiz nights, there's something for everyone. The atmosphere is always electric, making it the ideal spot to unwind, socialise, and create lasting memories.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri 6pm till 2am
Sat/Sun 2:30pm till 2am

So, if you're in search of a place that combines the warmth of a traditional British pub with the excitement of a Tenerife hotspot, look no further than The Merry Monk. It's more than a bar; it's a community and a stage for unforgettable experiences. Come and see for yourself why The Merry Monk is not just a bar – it's a destination.
