A pub that serves Thai food in an ajoining restaurant area (no smoking). Possible to book, but be warned that there is a jazz band every Tuesday from 8.30pm. A wide selection on offer with a couple of daily specials. I had the fish (kingfish that day) which was very good. Good portions, no desserts and dead cheap.


The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. So why not 4 piggies? Because of the damned jazz band. They were probably a very good jazz band (they handled their instruments competently enough), but they were too close (ie loud) for conversation and even when they did take a break they left the drummer, the keyboard player and the clarinetist behind. Bastards.


Acceptable Thai-style food, but too Anglicised for my tastes (i.e. spicing subtle, lacking heat). My starter order was messed up and arrived late. The main course, fish in chilli sauce, was unfeasibly mild, but quite tasty if not judged as Thai. Comments on the "entertainment" thirded! Too loud, too unoriginal.
