A great pub, very well managed and with a menu that could outdo any Australian or UK pub. Always showing Premier League, NFL, AFL, NRL, Cricket, Super 14 and whatever sports they can get their hands on, you will rarely be disappointed (although I have missed out on seeing a few matches of Australian World Cup football qualifiers).

The menu has great burgers, pies and local varieties, and they've even recently added a salad menu. The bar is full and can take good care of you during a long cricket test match.

The costs are quite high, but the bar can't be matched in Phnom Penh. When there are no matches are on, the bar is indeed quiet, but as soon as the sport starts the crowds fill in. The best factor of the bar is the management though. The staff are great, the place is clean, the pool table and internet is free and unlike any other sports bars in Phnom Penh, and most other bars for that matter, there are no beer girls or bar girls and the crowd that they attract.

Can't be beaten.

Fantastic place! Huge, crystal-clear projection screen, cheap beer. There's nothing else that I know of in the city.

Expensive drinks? Compared to other bars of its type? No.
Food from $3 to $10? There was nothing over $6.75US on the menu I ordered from.
No customer? On the weekend I was there you couldnt move - the place was jumping.
Maybe there is another Gym Bar in Phnom Penh and you were at that one?

Expensive drinks and no one in the bar. Lots of TVs with sports but only waitresses watching
