“Fun 'sports' bar in Fishermans Village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Reasonably priced drinks, particularly during Happy Hour & good place to catch your favourite sports matches (e.g. Lions Tour) in English!

“Sad decline”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Well I have been going to this little pub for the last 4 years. I am sorry to report that it has taken a turn for the worse, Its famouse on Samui for its long running and very popular pup quiz but even that has taken a turn for the worse. The food is not great. It has a good selection of food both Thai and international but its not great quality. The beer was always nice and cold in the past but my last two visits the beer has been warm, not what you want in Thai land. Even when we explaned to the staff that the beer was not cold they said that there was nothing they could do. For the last hour of the pub quiz I went with out drinks because it was warm. We visit Samui twice a year and always go to the pub quiz and always book a table. This time twice we turned up and the table was not booked and they had to make up a table for us. On the following week it did seem to run smoother when the owner was away. Its sad to watch a place go down hill that you did like going to. I wont be going back to this pub.

“Great little pub with brilliant staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed over the road at the Smile House and for a little local pub serving good food you can't go wrong.

Great local Thai girls giving great service with a smile. Decent choice of drinks at reasonable prices, and a good menu for a pub.

Smack on the beach in Fishermans Village, it has amazing sea views.

They also show most of the sports on TV ans Abigail screen when required.

Great friendly place, give it a try!!!!
