As others have said, attention to detail, cheerful service, beers, cider and Guinness on tap and good food. We ate here twice and weren't disappointed. Generous portions of fresh ingredients and the lovely pub dog for company. Seems well patronized by expats and Thai locals. The free wifi and jukebox kept all ages happy.

We just stopped here for drinks in late morning and I was simultaneously amused and impressed by this slice of Old England in paradise. Everything about this place is right for an English pub, from the specials board to the darts and the pool and more importantly the menu. It was a pity it was a bit early for lunch... More

I love the masons arms. Probably the cleanest restaurant in Phangan. Food is very good, try the scotch eggs. Cold beer on tap and a lovely garden. Shame the owner supports southampton but we all cant be perfect.

For sure this pub has one of the best hamburger that i ever had in all my life. The place is cute and also bit funny because the style of the building is completely different from the rest of the island. The waiters are nice and always smiling, and there is a good climatization. I would suggest you to take... More

Well what can I say about the Masons Arms apart from the best pub on the island and a must place to go if you haven't been already. Sean and Kan are simply the best. They run a great pub and they know how to look after thier regulars. The staff that work along side them are all long serving... More

The Mason's Arms is a typical English Pub but set in Thailand. The hosts and the staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome from the moment you step in through the door. You can drink or eat either indoors or in the extensive grounds to the front and back of the pub. The food is excellent, freshly... More

Love the idea of home from home food when you are travelling for a long period of time, but this just isnt up to scratch! The pub looks great but the food is basically just freezer to microwave to plate. Make the menu smaller and actually cook the food!! And then you will be onto a winner!
