Part of this picturesque mock Tudor pub is a genuine Thai restaurant that also serves English bar food. It is a popular place with subdued lighting and a relaxed atmosphere. Sitting in a perfectly decorated Oriental setting, we were served by charming Thai waitresses.

From the menu, which also boasts a takeaway service, we chose our starters. The kanom jeeb, Thai dim-sum style prawn and chicken steamed dumplings, were soft and light, served in fragrant garlic soy sauce. The dish contrasted perfectly with our other starter of tender king prawn tempura, which we enjoyed with delicate sweet chilli sauce. For the main course, I plumped for phad pnew waan, an exceptional sweet and sour dish featuring crispy strips of pork and vegetables on sweet, steamed coconut rice. The spicy beef curry, gang pah, which was filled with bamboo shoots, chilli leaves and vegetables, had an aromatic sauce with a rich, clean taste. The curry had a gentle bite that lingered on the tongue but wasn’t overwhelming. Accompanied by steamed Thai jasmine rice, the curry was an absolute pleasure to eat. Every element of the meal demonstrated a wonderful depth of flavour.

The warm welcome our host and his staff gave us, along with the superb, authentic food conjured up by the Thai sisters that run the kitchen, made this a place that we’ll definitely return to.
