Great little bar near the Centara Resort Karon Beach. Craig is a great host, very welcoming with friendly service and chat. You feel like you're popping around to a mates place for a beer, or popping down your local pub, but Thai style. The food is also incredible, some of the best Thai food we had in our 2 week stay. They also had other options like burgers, and bangers and mash, which looked tasty too. We ended up coming here regularly and will do again if we're lucky enough to get back to Phuket :-). There is international sport on TV and if you've got a particular game in mind, Craig will happily pop it on for you. Definitely worth calling in! It will become you Karon Beach "local".

I couldn’t rate Craig any higher from his hospitality to his food. If you are coming to Phuket you need to stay here😁. The best sausage and mash I’ve ever had even better than home in London. Cold beers, 2 minute walk to the beach as well as being close to other shops/bars/restaurant. Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome during my stay ♥️ I would come back in a heartbeat

We have recently returned from Karon Beach and although the resort is quieter than usual this is still one of our go to places, whether to eat or just for a drink, Craig and Pim give a warm welcome. There's always plenty to choose from on the menu from traditional British food to an extensive range of Thai food and there's always the daily specials to check out, I highly recommend the food.

The living room was only open as a bar an restaurant a few days a week during my stay in Karon... This turned out to be a blessing because the breakfast is so good that I would have gained even more weight as there is no doubt I would have eaten there every day.. Craig & Pim are two of the nicest people you will meet in Karon.. I stopped by in an evening when they were still open and the beer was cold and the bar had an excellent atmosphere..

Due to Phuket’s entry restrictions we didn’t want to book in advance incase we couldn’t get on the island. Arriving at Karon, we tried to book but 3 places said full or closed. Called Crag at The Living Room Guesthouse, even though they were closed he quickly arranged his best room for us and was very welcoming indeed. He gave us an excellent rate for a room that is way above ‘guesthouse’ standard. Thanks so much Crag and best of luck for the future!!

Well as I'm still staying around the karon area I thought I'd try the living room for its food as I'd heard many good things about it Well I wasn't surprised by the previous comments The dining area is cozy and well laid out and interior has a nice feel about it After looking at extensive menu I saw on the wall a list of specials So I decided to have the sausage mushroom onion baguette for 190 baht Wow nice size filled me for the day I will be back to try the cottage pie
