What should a pub/bar be?
-A sociable, friendly environment
Oh Neil's, throughout the afternoon and evening has a friendly crowd of helpful locals, regular long-stayers, backpackers, flashpackers all intermingling while being served by some of the most professional bartenders (mostly Khmer) who enjoy socialising with the varied crowd.
-Pleasant non offensive music
Usually some of the best Blues, Rhythm 'n' Blues, rock'n'roll, with the occasional variation depending on the crowd/time of night.
-good quality food in an environment you are happy to eat in
Great Burgers, Banging Bangers'n'Mash, good sandwiches, and occasionally BBQ specials including tasty ribs and steaks.
-a friendly, helpful-but-no-nonsense landlord
Neil is possibly the friendliest guy in Kampot.
Basically, to an old-fashioned pub-punter, this place ticks all the right boxes. Has done for the six months I've lived here. Long may it last!
