Came here twice and it's so surreal having an English pub right in the middle of nowhere in Thailand! Service was good and good was pretty good, the breakfast was good however the second time I had scampi and chips which wasn't great - it was really burnt so they said I could have it for free which was nice!...

Maybe Dr Who has hidden one of his time travelling teleporter thingies here because walking through the doors is like stepping into an actual English pub. Authentic decor, food and ales. A welcome departure for those who've been travelling Asia for a while and are wanting something a little different from Pad Thai and drunken teenagers. Enjoyable.

After 2 months in Sri Lanka we were hankering for a traditional roast dinner. Although low season and also the coup effects still in place it was surprising that we were the only guests for dinner apart from some Thai friends of the staff. Beer was expensive and the roast dinner was barely acceptable but did have a big range... More

I dined in this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday (June 28th) and it was my first time. I feel like I owe this restaurant a good review, thus voila. I am from Jakarta and we have the same restaurant type/concept (English pub) there. I love the interior especially the exterior, it feels like you are in a proper English pub.... More

Excellent pub, air conditioned, pool, good beer, owner is a great chap. Im sure his dog is no longer a puppy but ask to say hello, it may remove some of your misconceptions about this beautiful breed! Great place to drink and chat, highly recommend this place. check it out.

I always make a trip to the Mason's every time I come to Phangan (I have been coming since 2008) and it always seems to get better every time, so much so I thought I'd write a review to congratulate the owners on a job well done. I was on the island for my birthday with my girlfriend so I... More

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

We got scotch egg with branston pickle, roast dinners and pie and mash. They were really delicious everything was tasty and the... More
