If you enjoy passively smoking 20 cigarettes an hour and eat very average food this is the place for you. Everyone is chain smoking and the place stinks of tobacco. Horrid 70s Brit/Oz ambience. I came for the live music but left before I needed...More

I have heard so many things about this place as a great place to go to...really very much just a middle of the road bar that is poorly laid out and cramped. Nicer places to drink in my opinion. I didn't try the Indian Food.

Nice neighborhood pub with decent food. Menu has many choices from curry, burgers, fried rice, etc. Many separate areas in establishment, with sports coverage in one area, live band in back and front bar area which is a little more quiet. Well worth a visit.

With many expats from UK, Australia and New Zealand, you really almost forget the fact that you are in Indonesia. They serve many good bar foods, including Boneless Chicken Tikka and various Indian Curry dishes. Nice service by their very friendly bartender should be noted...More

This place was conveniently next door to my hotel so I wandered in to have a look. When travelling, I often give a wide berth to English themed pubs but I must say they have got this place bang on. There is another review which...More
