I came here for lunch with 4 friends last week. 5 beers, 4 bottles of house wine and 5 excellent and substantial Thai meals. All for under £120. I'm retired now but still come back here often when I'm in the City. Well worth it.

I would have given it three bubbles as it is an average pub, only came here to watch an England match as they advertised live sport. Now I’m watching the England match without sound and having to listen lady marmalade!

Perfect example of a boozer in London which is probably buzzing when it's busy, but seeing it almost empty in mid-Friday afternoon shows how important people are in creating atmosphere in most city pubs. There's plenty of space, but also lots of big TV screens...More

I lived in Asia and have many friends who have - and they all love this place! I go very often. Surprising little gem of a Thai restaurant above a pub - great portions and wonderful for lunch or dinner. Also highly reasonable in terms...More

Non-fussy, relaxed atmosphere. Excellent and reasonably priced Thai cuisine. I could eat this ever other day.

I used to come here almost once a week but since I retired I only come a couple of times a year. It's as good as ever, homely Thai cooking at a bargain price for the City. They also do a house wine for £10,...More

Went for drinks on a couple of nights with friends. Nice bar service, house ale is great. Didn't try the food. Heaters outside for smokers, ample space inside. Fun pub!

Not the best Thai food I have ever had but it offers excellent value for money and good ortions. Would like to come back in the week as we ate here on a Saturday and it was dead.

Quite a good atmosphere, although high stools are a bit uncomfortable. Food was satisfactory, but nothing to write home about.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

As far as I know, but only downstairs in the pub itself. I doubt they'd allow a dog into the Thai restaurant upstairs.
