Humans get various cravings from time to time. With me it often derives from my stomach; what a surprise! A desire for British pub grub will soon have my tummy rumbling and get me marching down to a public house. And so, where do you go for British pub grub that is authentic, but not expensive?
Well, two of my favourites are Chequers Pub (Soi Nana) and the Queen Victoria (Sukhumvit Soi 23). The connection and logic is simple, they both hire the same head chef. The man responsible for the excellent pub grub is Peter Street, who previously ran Bobby’s Arms in Patpong.
When you are nearby Soi Cowboy visit the Queen Victoria and when you are nearby Nana Plaza visit Chequers Pub. I’m confident you won’t be disappointed. I really appreciate good British home style cooking, because my dear mother religiously burnt our dinners. The sausages were nearly always as black as coal. Bless her!
Just the other day I visited Chequers Pub and ordered the puff pastry meat pie, with mashed potatoes, garden peas and brown gravy. That hit the spot I can tell you! The problem with pies here is it’s hard to get the pastry right, especially crispy puff pastry. Chequers Pub is one exception to the norm. It was excellent and cost a reasonable 250 baht net.
Recently a friend was stuck inside Heathrow Airport. He was starving and paid 500 baht (about 10 pounds) for a cheeseburger and chips. Now that’s what you call expensive. This much better meal below will cost you half that amount. People ask me why I left England over 12 years ago, well there is one very good reason.
