Old Town

Classic Cars and live music Saturday nights…dress down.!

 

One of our favorite Friday nights……and only a mile from your villa.

This great little pub is very popular and conveniently located for anyone staying in the Kissimmee/Davenport area just West on the 192 where it meets the US27. It has plenty of the “black stuff” on tap and has a great menu with wonderful fish and chips and a full Sunday roast. It also has that “local” feel which we love.

There is often live music, karaoke and English football is broadcast on the TV’s which means if you fancy a breakfast whilst watching a 3pm kick-off in the UK, this is a great place to do it.  An Uber will collect you from Tuscan Hills clubhouse and take you there for around $6 each way.

Our favourite takeaway:

We always like to eat Chinese food when we are at the home, and the best takeaway we have found is situated a half mile South of Tuscan Hills near Publix on Sand Mine Road.  Check out the menu here:
