We visited this place a few times from Phong Nha Farmstay. What a fantastic place. My son loved jumping in the pool. I loved the hammocks. The food was great. The people are amazing. And it is all part of the adventure at Phong Nha!

I've been a couple of times in February and found the beers to be cold and the BBQ chicken fantastic. It's a family run farm to table place and although they can do a vegetarian option it is famous for its fresh meat options. Set...a bicycle, motorbike or jeep ride from Phong Nha it's a small oasis and has a lovely swimming pool so take your swimmers. It's clean, well maintained and friendly with lots of space to lounge after a big lunch. It's a great place to visit.More

Like the name sez "pub with cold beer". Also a pool and heaps of sitting areas. If you've been on the road for a while a cold beer and a swim is worth a stop. If you have more than a few beers then sleep...in a hammock, swag, or tent.More

We can recommend this place! We went to get a cold beer and lunch. The food was very good and we were eating with a lovely view.

Beautiful view for a beer, but bike a little farther to Moi Moi restaurant for food instead of getting food here.

explore the beautiful surrounding area both by bicycle and scooter, which you can borrow or rent at the resort. The bicycle ride to the Pub With Cold Beer was wonderful and scenic and super-enjoyable. On the way we were able to see locals working in...the fields surrounded by mountains from all sides. Once we got to the pub, we had the best coffee ever and from the view point we could admire the vista of the whole of the village. After having spent some time in the sunshine, we went down to the river where we swam and were later accompanied by buffalos! It was incredible! Once we were done, after a few hours, we headed back to our farm-stay. This was definitely one of the best things to do in Phong Nha, and also easily accessible from where we were staying, which I highly recommend!More

If it's just grilled chicken you're after, then this isn't a particularly stand-out option. If it's the opportunity to kill your own lunch, then this is definitely the spot. And the valley itself is very pretty, so makes for a good cycle trip.

My partner and I found out about this place online after arriving in Phong Na, we were staying in the main town. We cycled 10k, 7 on the main roads, 3k on the ‘beaten track’. Pub with cold beer was signed posted from the main...road & a few along the way which really helped. Friendly family running this place, we only stopped for drinks but did a selection of food. A place to park your bike or motorbike and plenty of outdoor seating/hammocks. Cute little view which can be reached via a ladder or slope and has places you can stay. Overall, really lovely and peaceful stop. Would recommend.More

Definitely worth the visit and if you are game enough to pick out a chook then you are guaranteed to have the freshest chicken meal you've ever had in your life! Truly delicious and an experience, and you will definitely get a cold beer from...them as well!More

It was so good we came back daily until we left Phong Nha. The kids basically run the restaurant and offered us the opportunity to catch and kill the chickens we ate. We accepted and it was done in a humane and painless manner -...it felt right as we were the ones eating them. The peanut sauce, as rumoured, is a force to be reckoned with. I am not a religious man by any means, but that sauce brought me closer to God than any clergyman ever has. Also the beer is very cold. But that sauce though. Damn.More

If you are early enough you can get dinner, we ate at sunset. Be wary of the drive back home though after dark!
