    You'll be too old to go out by the time you get permission from 'she who must be obeyed'.

    Warblers is no longer, Mrs Q.

    There's some other bar/restaurant type thingy there now.

    As for the Scottish Bar, I think that moved (but not far) and the only time I went there, there was nothing to mark it out as being Scottish except for a few pictures on the wall. If it hasn't got any Scottish Ale, then its not a Scottish bar in my book. Was there anything in particular you liked about this place, Mrs Q?

    You haven't been hanging out with bar girls again have you? Maybe they are trying to convince AO that they REALLY like you.

    Otherwise I have no idea what he is on about - unless he is cofused and still thinks I am a tall scottish lady.

    ^No not exactly - there's Wong's which is a kind of ex-pat place and Kenny's which is more of a Thai bar for foreigners (ie:guest house/cafe/bar)

    well he said he liked the seediness of Soi Sri Bumphen for some reason - it's not that seedy really but more just a fucking shit hole. Those two bars I mentioned were always pretty dead whenever I walked past or ventured in.

    there's a few very weathered hoes around sometimes - the kind of ones that look as if they are HIV positive junkies.

    I tried a guest house near Kenny's once (Home sweet home or some similarly sounding stupid name) - it was the worst place I've seen in Thailand so far - the fucking pits!

    A couple of weeks back I went into the Bulls Head for lunch.
    I have never really liked the atmosphere there but the food is usually infinetly superior to that of the Londoner.
    Well pehaps not always ...

    The place was about hal full- it was the back end of lunchtime.
    I ordered the cottage pie. Not cheap as I recall.

    As dry as toast. difficult to swallow. Very little potato topping which for some may male for better value but I like the combination/ texture of the meat and taters.
    Came with aselction of veg which were nicely cooked and crisp.
    Wont be back again so soon

    Today had or tried to have lunch at the Robin Hood on Sukhumvit.

    I recall MTD stating that service was a tad slow here in his review. This had always kept me out as at the prices paid in these farnag bars at least you ight expect decent service.
    Well i might have found out the reason today for this slow service.
    On walking in there was no service bugger in the place at all not even behind the bar. I was tempted to serve myself.
    Eventually some waiter comes out and i order a pint of strongbow.
    He goes off behind the bar leving me with the menu.

    A good five minutes or more later a waitress appears and asks if i would like a drink. I state I am under the impression I have already ordered one . She runs off before I can order food.
    Another good five minutes later the waiter reappears at my side without my drink and asks if I would liek to order some food.
    I ask him where my drink is. He says i have to wait 20 minutes or more for the Strongbow- problem and again asks me for my food order.

    I walk out wishing I had never entered.
    What do they do when busy?
    Why do i need to pay the extra money?

    I'll stick to acold beer from a bar beer thanks

    A mate is leaving to go and work in Singapore, but it is lucky that the Guinness is cheap as it is not the best pint of Guinness at the Robin Hood.

    Though not a british pub Abolut 7 bar on soi 7/1 when it started its happy hour incuded guinness.
    worked out at 100baht a pint. Had a few good happy hours there. Unfortunately guinness is no longer included.

    Found out the hard way (or should i say th thai way).

    Me to waitress "Has happy hour started" - it was late afternoon.
    Waitress to me "Yes"
    Me to waitress " OK then I will have a pint of guinness"
    Waitress brings me a pint.

    Me to waitress" How come you have only given me 1 pint"
    Waitress to me " Oh Guinness isn't one of the happy hour beers"

    Now that is information i could have used before ordering.
    I dont think i have been back since.
    food isn't bad (french owned)

    Well I managed about 7 pints of Guinness last night, and at 120B a pop (they did try to overcharge me though) I can't complain. And as I was standing near the till, I could collar one of the staff before they went into hiding.
