Just have a chance for second visit last week since got a 50% discount on all food menus. The people was not so crowded during midweek but not for weekend that there would be a throng coming either for meeting or bide for sport program.
The price is rather reasonable to a bit high in my opinion but it was not a problem in regard to my discount voucher. If you order Thai’s cuisine and you want rice to pair, there is no need to order separately as it already inclusive in each dish. The taste is not typical for Thai food but adjust to simply satisfy the foreign folks so if you prefer something genuine go to sidewalk stall.
I have tried their both brew beers the German Pils and the English Bitter. Of course, they are not excellent or some kind of ground breaking but at least they are worth especially in this hard to find craft beer country. In addition, there are some Thai’s bottled beer selling and maybe Beer Laos (not so sure as just see the advertisement board).
I may revisit in this short time as just have received another discount voucher. With its location along the sky train area there is no offensive in traffic.

I think this place has gotten a bad rap on BeerAdvocate... or maybe I've just been in Thailand too long, where the possibilities of getting a good bitter are not what they are elsewhere.
That said, I would definitely recommend going to the Londoner for a hops fix.. the bitter is not exactly a cream bitter, but it has a nice British hoppy flavor, copper color, good malt flavor and is balanced and quite a good beer.
The time to go is between 4 and 7 pm every day, when the beers are two for the price of one. This makes the deal even sweeter.
I have not tried the pilsner because I can get this style of beer just about everywhere else in Southeast Asia. But if you are in need of a hop fix, the Londoner Bitter is a really good cure!

I was on vacation, and at this point I had most of the local can beer... was just looking for something else. A brew pub in Thailand, I thought I was going to find something great. But instead the beer they brew here is crap.. flavorless metal tasting crap. The pilsner just tastes like a light version of the English bitter. It was just odd being in Bangkok at an English Pub. If you are looking to watch a football game or rugby game then fine, at least they have it on. But really just get a can of beer lao and eat some street food.

This ain't no crummy backpacker bar. I arrived here a ragged, sweaty mess after traveling 2 days from Chiang Mai with no break. I cut a strong contrast to the expected Sukhumvit clientele of rich, sexy HiSo Thai kids and the old, fat farang businessmen with their young Thai "girlfriends". Naturally the staff is slow to serve me. There's plenty of time to soak in the kitschy British-pub surroundings and the rotation of UK footie games on the TVs.
My server is dressed like the queen from Alice in Wonderland. Cute. She explains that she is busy due to "Wacky Wednesdays", the 2-for-1 drafts all night promotion. After haggling, she agrees to give me one Pilsner and one Bitter for the promo price and brings them both out at the same time. Sticker shock sets in when I look at the menu. I settle for a cheeseburger with fries. Even though the grub pushes almost 300 Baht, it's good.
I've had no beer with this much hop flavor for 6 months, so I'm more pleased with the brews than I should be. It's a nice change from the usual Thai piss, but I prefer the German microbreweries in Thailand. Speaking of which, the brewmaster here is German. Is this proper for "probably the capital's most popular British gathering spot"? Sure...it's wacky Thailand. But should you pay 120 Baht for a Chang Light bottle here? No.

Evilly bad beer.
I used to live in Bangkok teaching English and Biology. Once I would get absolutely fed up with drinking beer-sing out of cans and/or cheap rum whiskey, I would head out and look for drinking holes.
Although they fully attempt to make the place seem like an "English style pub," you can't really forget that you are in Thailand. (why would you want too, it is already interesting enough on its own...)
The beer is pretty bad. I stopped by a few times, sampling the bitter, the stout and the Soi 33 pilsner. I think that beer ingredients are supposedly hard to find in the country. My only comment about that, the Paulaner brewery in Bangkok always has quality/tasty German brews.
The food is good, but so is the food elsewhere.
Keep away, and try somewhere else.
