Description: Promising a warm welcome and fantastic service, the Latymers is a much-loved pub at the heart of Hammersmith. As well as our authentic Thai cuisine, we’ve got a bunch of old favourites: classic cask ales, a great wine selection and a heap of board games just waiting to be played.

Thai food was just as good as (if not better than) any chain thai restaurant on the high street. I had the Chicken Penang curry and it was delicious. Great value for money and it's good that you don't have to eat your meal in the restaurant section of the pub (as we wanted to eat while watching sport).

All staff were very friendly and were efficient both in serving and clearing up afterwards.

Would definitely go back and would highly recommend to others.

I have been going to Latymers for many years now & at one point it was actually a good restaurant to go to & enjoy a pleasant evening with fairly good Thai food.

However, standards have dropped enormously in the last few years. It is at a stage now where the food is very bland, without any of the bold & beautiful flavours that one expects from Thai cuisine.

However, for me the biggest problem with this restaurant is the customer service. To put it bluntly, it is AWFUL. At the centre of this rude & unfriendly customer service is the "Head Waiter". It seems he is in charge of the restaurant area. How someone can get away with offering such rude & awful customer service (especially now when customer money is so vital for a business) is beyond me.

My advise to anyone wishing to visit this restaurant would be to THINK AGAIN. There are better restaurants out there, which truly deserve your money. Below average, dull, bland food with exceptionally bad customer service just isn't worth your time nor money.

The Thai food is authentic with exceptional flavours. Highly recommend all their Curries, especially the mix sea food dish that comes in sizzling bowl- Pad Reah Poh . Have been enjoying their food for last 6 years and can say it has improved year on year to now be my favourite Thai resturant in London.

Have been going to latymers for more than 6 years, the food was initially very very good.the owner - the man in the restaurant , has always been unfriendly and many times rude.
We used to ignore his attitude , because the food was worth it.though we all always left feeling cross with him because of his attitude to paying customers.
Now over the years the standard of the food has dropped.I know a lot if people are big fans but I do believe their food was much better a few years ago.
We went a few weeks ago to find the food ok, nothing exceptional and the managers attitude still the same, rude and unfriendly.
I personally am not planning to go back , one thing the food being so-so but bad customer service isint worth it.

Saying thank you, smiling and being polite and friendly -such simple things but so lacking there.
