I was feeling a little homesick and wanted to eat a nice burguer with fries. So searching the site i found this great place. All i have to say is that this is the closest to the burguers i can find back home that i could get in malasia. Wich is truly something.

Sad, this place closed beginning 2014. Hear owner says not enough customers. Gods used to be great but on the decline with a new chef. Main reason to visit was the friendly host. Guess too much competition in the area, would have survived in remote Borneo?

Cider on tap, food looked ok but atmosphere not very pub like, or restaurant like. Quite quiet when we were there, on a Friday night.

Maclaren's is just perfect if you are gagging for some British comfort food. It is just like being in a pub in England and even serves pints, very welcome. As others say, Rik the owner is a great host and makes you feel very welcome. More expensive than the local fare but worth it if you have a craving!

We had a couple of beers here with some friends, the pub itself is nothing outstanding but the beer is good, the staff are friendly and efficient and the host, Ric, very welcoming. Apart from the decor it was like walking into your local pub in the UK! I would have liked to have gone back to try the food,... More

There's no doubt that Ric Bische (the owner) is a natural at making you feel welcome in his bar/restaurant. He's one of those landlords who has a knack of making you feel welcome the moment you walk through the door. As for the food well it's traditional English pub grub but in American size portions (the burgers are mountainous). It's... More

Stumbled upon this gem of a place with my girlfriend while waiting for my hair cut appointment and since then this has been my place of choice tohang out and enjoy great pub food and awesome value. Even though it might be your first time, the owner Rick immediately makes you feel at home. You leave the place gaining a... More
