The central location of Soi 8, combined with a sports bar theme and good menu and drink selection mean that this expat-hang-out brings the crowds in every night. It is ideal for those who want to escape the madness of Bangkok for a little slice of familiarity, that is well catered to tourists. The owner is from New Zealand and as a result there are a lot of visitors from Australasia who hang out here.
Although Soi 8 advertises itself as a family bar, the one thing to note is that smoking is still allowed inside and as such, it can become very congested. Whilst there are extractor fans and efforts are made to remove the smell, if you or your children are uneasy with smokers in close and confined proximity, then perhaps this is not the place for you. However the staff are always helpful, attentive and friendly, which compensates if you are unsure on the environment otherwise.
The Pub serves a wide selection of drinks, including Magner’s Irish cider and shots, cocktails, bourbons and whiskies. The food is also up to scratch and they are renowned for serving the best pork chops in Bangkok. They specialise in British style home cooked meals, such as sausage and mash with gravy and apple sauce. Cooked to beyond expectations for such an establishment.
