This bar was originally Claudes WMC owned by Brian aka Greengrass and his wife Sheila aka Gert. The majority of the comments relate to Claudes nd the great nihts we had with Gorgeous Gary the singer and the "crap" quizzes.
Anyone happen to know where Gaz and Dawn are these days? Cheers - SMJ
We spent two great weeks with your dad kenny and brother colin and Sue, hope you get to read this before you go out to see them as we are not sure what date colin said you were going. Just to say that they seem to have got of to a flying start. We had such a laugh and good time and also made good friends with them and we found it hard to come home so much so we will be back to see them next june. Any one going out to kalamaki we would def: recommend a trip to see Kenny, Colin and Sue.

Merry xmas and a happy new year
What can i say, we went in with our "proper friends" and a week later we had even better friends. Gary and Dawn are two of the nicest people we have met for a long time, kind, hospitable and most of all welcoming and know how to have a good laugh. Nice bar and the service is second to none. There's only three things left to say, thank you guys for making our holiday even more special, we now have even better "proper friends", and...oh yeah STU'S MOUNTAINS!! Cheers!

We really enjoyed our afternoons/evenings in Cactus Claudes. Really friendly welcome by Dawn and Gaz, great live music by Sidshow Bob and Double Measures, brill quizzes (even if they did frustrate the hell out of us) and really nice atmosphere - we made lots of friends. The drinks are delicious and very reasonably priced. See you next year !!
