Where to eat - British pub restaurant

Recommended Posts

Need ideas. I am out of date with Pattaya's dining scene.

 

Please suggest a British pub restaurant. I have been taken, over, say, the last 2 years to a number of restaurants, often on Lengkee or Chaiyaphun and found the food average. I suspect the people who recommended them were focusing on value for money rather than quality. 

 

So, I am looking more for quality and ambience rather than a cheap way to fill my stomach. 

 

At the other end of the scale, I don't need to pay for a live band or prime location.

 

I just want quality British pub restaurant type food and I am prepared to pay for it.

 

I welcome your suggestions.

Well The Pig and Whistle shut. 

Retox, Robin's Nest, Steak and Co, Dicey Reillys, Mulligans in The Hilton. 

Rosie O'Grady's. Beefeater.

Different with live music... Hooters.

Thanks I don't want Retox nor Hooters.

 

Where is Dicey Reillys, he asks picking one randomly from the list.

Part of the Royal Garden sprawl next to Avani. Used to be a basement Spinney's (?) supermarket in a long-ago previous existence. Entrance is from 2nd Road. Has dining out front or air conditioned inside. The Filipina crooner is nice.

No, no live band, no live singers. Just quality food. Thanks.

If you're thinking Retox on Lengkee maybe. Primarily a breakfast and sports venue. I think they may still have another, larger venue that straddles the 2nd Road end of Soi Honey and the adjacent soi. I recently had fish and chips there and mistakenly added a soup starter thinking the portions may be small. Wrong! The excellent soup came in a proper-sized soup plate with thick, crusty bread and there was maybe 3 big cod fillets and more thick-cut fries than I could handle. I couldn't even finish my pint I was so stuffed.

The crooner is outside.

 

You eat inside.

 

PS. Quality is subjective.

Ah, maybe, the Retox on Second Road can get back on the list. However I am extremely dubious about any establishment that gets recommendations on the size of its portions 'cos it makes me think the recommender is focussing on value for money rather than quality. 

 

All crooning pubs and restaurants are out.

Yes, Retox Game On,  it runs through from Soi Honey and I think it is soi 10, at the second Rd end. I too have had a good meal there.

Okay, found it on Googen. It is on the list. Need one or two more. I used to go to Rosies or Rosie O'Grady's on Soi 7. I found the food there to be something like what I am after. Is it still okay / in business?

Yes it is still there and in business. It is always pretty quiet and the food is nothing special but then again, that is in line with Brit pubs.

Listen, you're the one that wanted some advice and then you suggest that maybe I eat poorly?
