if you love a traditional English boozer, you have got to visit this place! Visited 2 nights in a row purely for the food!! The English owners are really friendly and easy to get along with! I was recommended by a friend to come here and would recommend anyone visiting the island to do the same!

290 baht for a lamb roast dinner, roughly around £6.50. Bottled cider are the best prices we have come across 120 and 180 baht. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere and deco very British. . Home away from home...

After travelling around Asia for 3 months a traditional English pub was the last thing we expected to see. The traditional English decor (both inside and outside) and the atmosphere made us feel like we were back in the UK. We visited here for Christmas dinner but unfortunately we thought the food was very average and slightly overpriced. However, staff... More

Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your visit. I agree our meals may be slightly more expensive than other restaurants on the island. Having a large fully enclosed, air conditioned restaurant means we have higher overheads than most other venues. I hope this explains. More

This is a traditional country pub you would find in England. Me and partner came and are here twice. The second time was after the full moon party, we were feeling a little bit worse for wear so what better to have than a good old English roast dinner. The portions are great and the food is lovely. Highly recommend... More

Absolutely loved this place if the weather wasn't as good I would of thought I was actually in England. The roast dinner was so good I ended up coming back two days later and getting another which was the perfect hangover cure from the full moon party. Lovely staff, lovely food and beautiful pub can't complain!

It's hard to miss the Mason's Arms! It stands tall and proud alongside all the bamboo hippy bars. Lovely people running the bar with great food. As much as I love Thai food they can't do a real English breakfast - but the Mason's Arms certainly can! I can't recommend the breakfast enough.

Spotted this place while driving around the island. Excellent British food with Guinness and local beer on tap. Pool table, darts board. Under new management by some friendly expats. Great to find after being on the road for months. Good luck with the new lifestyle.
