In fact I have now eaten there twice since my breakfast report.
The first time my wife (she who must be obeyed) and I went for an evening meal and it was first class, just as my friends had told me.
I went for the char grilled gammon steak with hand cut chips, grilled tomatoes, garden peas, and a choice of fried egg or grilled pineapple rings, all for 190baht. The chips were real back home type, chunky and crisp outside and fluffy inside and the gammon was cooked to perfection.
My other (not better) half, being a fish lover, went for the Salmon Wellington; pastry covered Norwegian salmon on wilted spinach with a white wine cream sauce, saute potatoes and seasonal vegetables. All that for 330baht and, as she said, “worth every mouthful”.
The helpings are generous enough so that we passed on a dessert.
My second visit was for a Sunday lunch as we had our eldest son plus the two grandchildren with us. We also had a Thai friends' son with us for the day and his parents, Amy and Barry, joined us for the meal.
To say the place was full would be an understatement. We had arrived fairly early and in very short order people were sitting at the bar waiting for tables to become free...and that must tell you about the quality of the lunches!!!
My wife and I went for the roast beef lunch, our son went for the chicken, the grandchildren shared a beefburger, our young Thai friend went for Kow pad moo, his Dad went for cottage pie and his Mum, who declared she was not hungry, settled for a bowl of French onion soup.
The beef dish comprised slow roasted sirloin of beef with Yorkshire pudding, mash and roast potatoes, sage and sausage meat stuffing, pigs in blankets, gravy in a boat and seasonal vegetables: (and that meant cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and asparagus), all for 295baht.
This was probably the best roast dinner we have had here in Pattaya so far, one small point was the mashed potatoes that were not quite right, but no complaints about the rest of the meal at all. Do we really need the mashed potatoes? Perhaps a few more roast ones would be better.
The chicken dinner our son had was carved roast chicken , again with roast and mash potatoes, plus all the extras that went with the beef meal...truly delicious were his words and he has put Punch and Judy on his favourites list.
The boys’ meals were equally as good, even sharing that burger and chips with the salad garnish they were full, and our Thai lad made very short work of his food.
His mother had a very good bowl of soup, but we were still waiting for First's Dad's meal when suddenly the waitress realised in all the confusion that she had mistakenly given his order to another table...I did say it was mobbed in there.
Jamie came straight over and apologised for the delay and said it would not be on our bill due to the hold up.
Cannot be fairer than that can you.
When it arrived it was sizzling hot and Barry had to eat around the edges to allow it to cool down a bit...but he said it was well worth waiting for.
I love sorbet and I thought I would indulge myself this time and asked could I have just the scoops of the vanilla and limoncello ones as I am not fond of the strawberry version. I expected to get the normal size ice cream scoops and everyone at the table could not believe what I was served.
There were two scoops of the limoncello and one scoop of the vanilla, but each scoop was the size of a tennis ball. They looked on in disbelief as I worked my way through it.
I cannot remember the price, but it was worth every baht of the cost.
Well done Jamie and staff for an excellent Sunday lunch.
