Lesters Bar Muro de Alcoy

The Vall D’Abaida finally has an English bar. Well, a Spanglish

bar would be a fairer description of Bar Lesters in Muro De Alcoy.


Lester and Tina have taken over this previously Spanish owned bar and added their own English touches. Both from Horsham in West Sussex they moved to Agres, near Muro just over a year ago in July 2005. After spending many years researching living in Spain and looking for property further south in Yecla and Pinoso they stumbled across the Vall D’Albaida and knew this could be home. They left the UK for an easier and better way of life but knew they would have to work at some point. Lester, previously a buildings maintenance man and sign writer and Tina who worked as a cook supervisor for Age Concern in Horsham had hoped to start their

bar from scratch but found it cheaper to buy a going concern. They really have jumped in at the deep

end. Never having run a bar in Spain before they were guided by the Spanish regulars in the fine art of coffee making and the varied choices of alcoholic beverages. Tina told IT, “Our Spanish regulars have been fantastic, showing Lester how all the coffees are made and served. They really have supported us from day one”. The bar is set off the main road through Muro and open from 8am for those early birds. It is close to the municipal market making it an ideal spot for a stop off on market day.
Pop in and treat yourself to a full English breakfast or bocadillo. The full menu offers a nice mixture of Spanish and English food to satisfy the most hungry customers and excellent value for money. With seating inside and out we Brits can make the most of the last of the summer sunshine and dine al fresco. Tina and Lester have big plans for the bar and hope to be able to offer musical nights soon and anyone in the area interested in joining the Bar Lesters darts team should pop in now and put their name down. Bar Lesters is also available for private hire for those parties where you don’t have to worry about the clearing up!


Inland Trader would like to wish Lester and Tina all the very best in their new venture.
