After a couple of months in Southeast Asia I happened upon here quite by accident and it was a VERY pleasant surprise.
It was rather surreal to see Mock British architecture on a tropical island in the gulf of Thailand, particularly with the authentic beer garden in the front, which gives way to palm trees and buffalo on either side! Inside, the design and layout are identical to many pubs that you will find back in the UK with a traditional layout with all of the regular features- the only thing that seems odd is that everything is new so it has a sense of being in a film set of an English pub.
Now to the food... I can't say I was expecting much from it, but the food was astoundingly good! I ordered the full English breakfast and was staggered by how excellent it was. Easily the best one I've ever had outside of the UK, and would hold its own against most in the UK too. My friend had the steak and ale pie, which I tasted and I was blown way by this too. I went back the next day with a load of Americans in tow to show them some traditional English grub and I made them all order pies and everyone loved it. I had the steak and kidney, which was delicious; a very generous portion comes with delicious mash, veg and gravy. The pastry is superb and the filling to die for!
I think anyone who comes to Southeast Asia and doesn't take advantage of the excellent and cheap local cuisine is missing a trick, but when you want a taste of home and some comfort grub then this is absolutely the place to come!
