Description: Molly’s Irish Bar, refurbished throughout in early 2018, on the site of the former Molly Malones Irish Pub, Phuket’s oldest and original Irish Pub. We continue to provide a wide selection of local and imported beers, wines and spirits with Irish favourites, Guinness and Kilkenny on tap. Our kitchen serves up homemade bar classics as well as Thai cuisine all prepared by our experienced Thai chef and his team. We have live music 5 nights a week (Tues-Sat) from our resident band, The Chosen Band from the Philippines with select other bands on Sunday and Monday nights. We are family friendly with kids menu and high chairs available for the young ones. If your looking for major sports events, we have those covered with various screens positioned throughout the air conditioned bar for you to view.

Great pub, clean toilets as well a band which plays to its audience. Staff especially Nutty were friendly. Beer was good but cocktails and spirits were not,couldn’t taste the spirits and the proportion of mixers to alcohol was all wrong favouring the mixer. Worth a visit just to get away from the pressure of Bangla Street.

We are glad you enjoyed yourselves at Molly’s Tavern and enjoyed the music.

With regard to the cocktails, I can only apologise that they weren’t to your satisfaction. Our cocktail ratio mix is in line with international standards. I will however look into this personally to ensure that these standards are being strictly observed. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

My last review in 2016 found fault with most things at what was then Molly Malones. That place closed down September time last year (2017) and has only recently reopened as Molly's Tavern. The new owners have tidied the place up, employed new staff and, thank goodness, re-employed the previous house band, The Chosen Band.
Food and drinks prices are reasonable for Patong and there are permanent drinks specials advertised every day. Have yet to see any food going back uneaten as we did with the previous owner. Toilets are clean. Decor is good and the place actually looks clean. The owners are present in the pub and seem to keep an eye on their staff and customer service. They even have a new sound system, so the Band can now be heard. Paddy's night was well done and well supported and we have not been disappointed with any of our visits since the relaunch.
This Filipino band are excellent and we have been watching them since they started at Mollys, around 10 years ago. They deserve more support and perhaps a big sign outside with LIVE MUSIC plastered on it would help. There is so much competition in Patong the owners need to do something extra to get the passing punters in.
Message to the new owners - please maintain these excellent standards!

Dear Sir

Thank you for visiting us and for providing positive feedback. We are grateful to you for sharing your observations.

Regarding the band, we firmly believe they are the best around and we support your comments in relation to this. As we are newly opened we have a number of marketing strategies still to implement in the near future. Thank you for suggestion regarding the live music sign.

And with the regard to our excellent standards, rest assured these will continue to be maintained and improved upon wherever possible.

Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Best wishes

Had a couple of visits here whilst staying in the Banthai hotel round the back.

Tried a steak the first night and Thai food the second night. Both great quality, decent portions and presented well.

Good selection of beers on tap with the all important Guinness tasting as it should.

Friendly staff who went out their way for you.

I understood from the owner that it had just recently reopened - wouldn’t have thought it with how well it’s operated - top marks!

Fantastic absolutely fantastic!!!
Our first night in Phuket we stumbled across this bar and decided to have 1 drink in here, that turned into a whole evening of drinking as the band were amazing and so friendly. Got everyone involved and the staff could help anymore. During our week stay we came to Mollys Tavern loads of times sometimes for drinks and once for food. The food was average but the staff and the atmosphere was what we kept going back for. Really enjoyed visiting the girls and made some good memories.
Would recommend and would definitely be back again!

Had a couple of meals here, The food was spot on and we couldn't fault it at all. We were there on St Patrick's day this year and the entertainment that day was great. One of the best singer/group we saw whilst staying in Patong
