Been there many times. The owner and staff are very accommodating to us as my mom is physically disabled. Lots to choose from the menu, and everything I tried hasn't failed me. The chocolate chip cookies are particularly yummy!

If you are looking for a place to sit outside to enjoy a drink and a Western meal, this is a great choice. The location is also ideal for taking a walk around the many parks and the campus nearby.

Having grown accustomed to the warmth and relaxing ambience of the corner pub in both London and Bellingham, this restaurant gives off the same genuine English charm that one might expect in a gentle, quaint English neighborhood. Home baked bread for every burger and sandwich...More

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the
busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the
district, and the long-standing history results in a
variety of street food. In addition to that, this
district also has the highest number of temples. This
is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic
buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example,
Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan

Opened in 2013 by two Brits. This is a Western style restaurant/pub/sports bar. Centrally located near the train station on Tainan's most beautiful tree lined road. The kitchen opens daily from 11AM till 11PM (12AM on Fridays and Saturdays). Serving authentic and delicious western style meals. We bake all our own breads and our cakes, desserts and sauces are also freshly made in house. There is a well stocked bar with draft beer and an excellent selection of bottled beers, ales and ciders from around the world. A great place for friends, families, couples, business meetings and parties. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. There is also a large projector screen and several TV's showing all major international sporting events. A truly unique place in the heart of Tainan.
