The Pickled Liver Pub, Bangkok

The Pickled Liver pub in Sukhumvit Soi 7/1, Bangkok

Soi 7/1 Sukhumvit Road

Opening hours: 1500-late
Happy hours: 1500-1900

The Pickled Liver is one of Bangkok’s best British-style pubs. It moved recently from its former location on Soi 11 Sukhumvit to its new premises on Soi 7/1 Sukhumvit (go right into the soi and it’s near the end opposite Maxims hotel). Sometimes when a favourite haunt moves, the existing regulars may have a feeling that things have changed too much. That’s definitely not the case here! If anything, the pub has been upgraded now and also offers a much nicer outside seating area. (Don’t forget that in Thailand smoking is banned by law inside air-conditioned premises, so if you’re a smoker you’ll be glad of the outside option.)

I interviewed proprietor Nick Wetzel for British Expat and he said he was very pleased with the move and that the regulars were all happy with it too. I happened to be in Bangkok on my own for a few days and had no problem at all in going there unaccompanied, so apart from all the other attributes of the pub, I’d also say it was a good place for a woman traveller to go by herself. No hassles there at all. Also, the staff are very friendly and helpful, so you’re well looked after.

I dropped in on Sunday to meet up with an old pal, and found to my delight that the Pickled Liver was serving Morland’s Old Speckled Hen on draught. So I ordered a pint.

It was superb – the first proper draught pint I’ve had in eight years. (Sorry, Diageo – nice though Guinness is, you have to be in Ireland to fully appreciate it.) I’d started to forget what I was missing, but Hen and the Liver brought it all flooding back. It was quite an emotional moment. Good one, Nick!
