I go here when I need some good British food. Best pies in Vientiane and the Sunday Roast rotates through beef, lamb, pork. Not huge but perfectly adequate with Yorkshire pudding like my mum made. Excellent staff and the owner is one of Vientiane's characters!...More

This place has a picturesque view of the mekong. Awesome place to sit down, have a cold one and watch the mighty Mekong flow by. Also this place shows all popular international sporting fixtures and has a goos pub grub also.
