Chumphon is an incredibly provincial town, despite its size it’s easily the most Thai of cities. The town is bereft of decent restaurants, almost all the eating establishments, little more than street stalls that dish up staple Thai dishes. Even getting a decent cup of...More

A nice place but they shouldn't deliver what wasn't asked for. They have free wifi and also fans, to help keep you cool. I ordered a large Chang 85 Baht and a masaman curry.90 Baht. The masaman arrived with rice (which I hadn't asked for...More

The place is closed for a while now. I passed by many times in the evening and it is always closed. I heard the owner has medical problem and cannot come back.

Staff is very friendly and nice. People in the bar were very friendly. Thai food was good- the cocktails were lovely. I meant everything was ok - not that special or unacceptable.

I don't know who told you that the old drunk guy is the owner but he is definitely not the owner . He is just a dunk customer who normally sits away from other customers and causes no harm to anyone. I am fairly sure...More

Pleasant enough place, hasn't changed that much over the years although I think it has changed owners. Seems to have a couple of long term residents. Rooms are very basic and the shared facilities have seen better days but it a pleasant enough place to...More

My response to a customer review is very rare. Only necessary when review is stating a fact which is absolutely incorrect and/or irrelevant. I can absolutely assure you that our homemade pies are not straight out of a freezer packet and certainly do not taste...More

Description
It is with great sadness that we announce that we have had to close for good. I thank the staff for all the work they have done - especially the amazing and beautiful Fon without whom we would have crumbled years ago. The most important people to thank perhaps, were the customers for supporting us all along the way. We couldn't have done it without you nor would we have wanted to. With thanks and very fond farewells, Ivor
