Mars the owner really makes this place, he is friendly and full of useful information. Definitely recommend if you're missing burger and chips or just go for a beer and make some new friends.

After many days of asian food we wanted something that was different. Mars certainly met our wants. Is an english pub, so had a beer and the most wonderful fish burgers made with beautiful homemade buns and handmade chips.

Ate here a couple of times on a recent vacation in Khao Lak. Really friendly and helpful staff. Some good food available too including Chicken Pie and other British classics. Hand cooked chips and real vinegar! Recommended especially to Brits, but anyone will get a warm welcome for sure.

You can't miss Mars Bar it's the bright orange building with the massive smiley face sign on the edge of the main road 200 meters down from the 7-11 at Bang- Niang market just past the TMB bank.You will always find a warm welcome cold beer and delicious home made English style pub grub. Mars Bar now offers an ELECTRIC MOBILITY SCOOTER for rent at very reasonable rates for our older and disabled customers.
