Found the English pub type places in Bangkok to be quite expensive, even by western standards, no thanks.

Agreed, overcooked bland food, Malaysian Guiness at 5x US grocery store prices, and almost always a sausage party at the bar.

Maybe Covid-19 will give them an opportunity to move back into their old area. Plenty of failing businesses  with too much space along Suk.

The Londoner became a 7-11, Jools in Nana became a 7-11. Very sad state of affairs.

Bangkok is an expensive city.  My wife and I visit BKK at least four times a year [this year being an exception] but prefer a more central location.  The Londoner is too far out for a pint of beer and food for our brief stays but it does look impressive and the food looks good and reasonably priced, as compared to similar establishments in BKK.

 

I agree that by western standards pubs in BKK aren't cheap but I see them as a place to rest weary feet, have a drink or two, maybe food and a toilet break.  Quite convenient establishments.

I did.  You try it.

I'm sorry, I hadn't realised English wasn't your mother tongue. I'll go slowly for you - the suggestion (joke) was that you have two pubs, let's call them pub A and pub B. To comply with the take away only restriction, the people drinking in pub A buy their beers in pub B, whilst those drinking in pub B buy their beer in pub A. Now do you understand the post?

Used to love the Londoner when it was located on Soi 33, was in there probably 2-3 times a week, great food. Many a great night and lots of weird and normal people met.

 

Have not been since its moved to such an inconvenient location. I realize that it is probably more convenient for some.

 

Lovely little reminisce about that. Probably better for my health and constitution that it has moved!

I understood it before you tried to assist me.  Thanks anyway.

 

Now can you understand this?... I realise that he could not really have meant what he was suggesting but some people may have.  For the benefit of those who did think that it was a great idea I was suggesting that it wasn't because (a) no right-minded bar owner would let 'customers' drink alcohol bought elsewhere and brought into his bar and (b) consuming alcohol on the premises is illegal currently regardless of where it was bought.

 

Now do you understand?

My English comprehension is fine thanks, as is my sense of humour.
