You always feel welcome and at home here. I have been here several times and the food is always perfect and plenty on your plate.

I have eaten Breakfast here a few times over a number of years. You won't find a better breakfast in Pattaya, the place is spotless. Maybe a bit over-priced, but for what you get who cares. Love watching the UFC (cage fighting) at 7am whilst eating breakfast with my Irish Tirak.

I had a salad which was average. Ordered garlic naan bread which resembled under cooked pizza. In view of nearby restaurants we have found the pub to be somewhat over priced. The decor was very nice.

Very good selection of English and Thai food, always guaranteed a good meal here, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's far from the cheapest restaurant but worth it due to quality of food. Daily specials are decent value as is the Sunday carvery.

Nice atmosphere, good service, and an amazing breakfast make this place with going to. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! After a breakfast of eggs, sausage, toast and jelly,... More

WOW! when travelling i like a good sunday roast and i was told to come here by a friend. The choice is amazing. About 4 different meats and so many vegetables. I actually went back for seconds. Not the cheapest carvery in town, but in my opinion the best. the ambience is very nice also.
