My girlfriend and I stayed here before and after we came back from koh tao. The owner is a friendly and helpful guy with a good sense of humour. The burger we ate there was pretty tasty. There is also a permenant resident called Hans who can give you many good tips. Across the guesthouse is an amzing thai bbq... More

Went looking for the number 1 restaurant in Chumphon, it was closed so we saw this one and decided to try it. A very average place, first girl who served us had a bit of a personality but she went home. The next one had no idea. We ordered a glass of red and another beer, she got the red... More

We stopped for dinner here today as I saw a lot of good reviews on tripadvisor but as usual one or two bad reviews some people just like to complain. This restaurant is not in Europe so the food will not be the same as at home 100%. We had the steak and pasta bolognese it was delicious the plates... More

Well if you just want a drink and some western food then this place can provide that. Three of us ordered the home made pie which was nice enough but they only informed us there was no mash just before serving the food so I would have ordered something else, if I knew that at the start. They also gave... More

Average little bar ideal for a drink or inexpensive meal. It does what its name suggests and provides the usual facilities service of an expat bar.

Not a bad little bar to pop in whilst staying in chumphon. Large selection of both western and thai food for very reasonable prices (can recommend both the beef burger and massaman curry) also served with nice cold beer. Booked our ferry tickets here and found the thai staff pretty friendly and helpful. Overall pretty good bar for some food... More

we had a good spaghetti here. Prices were ok, but portions were not very large. Backpacker location.

Ivor, the owner, gave us plenty of information regarding travel to the islands which was very helpful indeed. We had dinner there which turned out to be the best Massaman Curry in Thailand! Highly recommend this bar; be it for a drink, food or a bed for the night.

As a bar it is ok but the food leaves much to be desired. Very average food and the bar was actually quite empty during our visit.
