My friend and I gave this bar a try on our last golf trip to KK. The comfortable furniture, cold beer, cocktails, and friendly service will assure we go back again soon.

Look it's not ideally located being a 5-10 minute walk from the Kosa main drag, but you won't be disappointed thus give it a go. Also I believe it opens late afternoon and closes whenever okay. Also a safe area to walk at night. The...More

This is a restaurant pub that opened about 4 months ago. It is the only place of its type in this small city and it's customer base is both tourists, local expats, and Thais. It is run by an amiable English owner who was a chef in England and features a small menu as well as a draft beer and spirits. The prices are inexpensive. I am an experienced traveler in Thailand and I stayed in town for 2 weeks and went there several times per week. There is a well maintained pool table and a wide choice of music to request. The best way to describe the location is simply "behind the yellow bank. The Krungsri Banks always have yellow signs and there is only one in this town as you enter it. I think listing this restaurant would be of benefit for any travelers passing through this city since there is no other place to have a sandwich and a beer and no one would look for it otherwise. thanks.
