    The Pub: The oldest and the best Pub ...

    The Pub is named as such because when it opened it was THE one and only pub in Chiang Mai. Hard to believe, but true.

    It's too simplistic to say they serve good pub grub, because the Pub and the Pub's menu is far more than that. After just visit you'll be considered a regular and treated as such (for better or worse!) by the mix of usually long-term expat crowd.

    Daily blackboard specials might be something like a quiche and salad, but many come for the traditional English sunday roast. Everyday menu is mixture of Thai favourites and western fare, including bangers and mash, and gammon steaks.

    As a bonus, the sport of the day is usually on the telly (be it football, rugby, car racing, whatever). And it's a great place to watch, from your bar stool, or from the comfy wicker arm chairs.

    Favorite Dish: The Steaks. A really good steak is a bit hard to come by around these parts, so when it's a good piece of meat cooked well, mmmmm ...

    This is the first pub to open its doors in Chiang Mai and was voted one of the best bars in the world. It is an olde worlde English pub the true tradition. Has a great selection of food and drinks incl. a Roast Dinners on Sundays. It recently had a makeover and extended the bar and the restaurant but has kept its old charm. There is also an outside area where you can sit and enjoy the tranquility of a tropical garden. And now has new bungalows added for those wishing to linger a while. A must to visit when in Chiang Mai.

    Favorite Dish: As a sort of traditional Englishman I just love my Sunday roast lunch. The Pub serve a choice of roast beef, port or lamb. This together with crispy roast potatos, Yorkshire pudding, and a tasty selection of fresh veg all smothered in a delicious gravy, just the way my mother used to make it. Find it difficult to call Sunday,"Sunday" without the roast lunch. And all this washed down with a pint of John Smiths beer makes it all complete.
