Can't argue with the quality at the Sportsman (Pattaya soi 13). Not the cheapest about, but it's central, close to Beach Road, reliably good, cool without reaching Arctic temperatures, and comfortable. The only drawback is parking anything other than a bike is pretty much impossible, so not ideal for wheelchair access. That said there is plenty of parking at The... More

Food and service was just ok. Not impressed. This seems to be favorite with English but if you are not English, not worth it.

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 especially love the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, washed down with a couple of cold beers while reading the paper or watching live sport on the telly. Its not the cheapest but you dont...

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.

Felt at home there which worried me as I really wanted to feel as if I was in Thailand worth the visit.

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.
