We actually had a take away and it also seemed very popular to sit down in the pub. I'm not surprised as the food was excellent and authentic!

The Reservior serves a damn good thai curry, but we ventured down there on a friday night (8pm) and the music was so loud (and bad) that it was painful! I politely asked the bar man to turn it down (just a notch) and the...More

Well worth a visit, the food was good, and service was quick and friendly despite the pub being very busy. Added to that, some nice beers, and a range of well behaved dogs which is always good

Amazing cute pub with lovely staff. But the Thai food is authentic, tasty and reasonably priced. My favourite pub to go to for food
