The traditional English breakfast seems to be something that is popular with all nationalities. OK, you might not feel the urge for a colossal calorie boost first thing in the morning every day, but it is great from time to time. Comprising of bacon, English sausage, eggs, black pudding amongst a selection of extras, it is a great way to soak up the alcohol from the night before helping you to feel human again! Luckily, here in Pattaya, there are plenty of places where you can get a great English breakfast.

The Retox Bars

The Retox Group is a chain of bars that can be found throughout Pattaya such as The Robin Hood at The Avenue shopping centre, venues on Soi Lengkee and Soi Honey as well as the Retox Outback Bar on Soi Siam Country Club. They have an extensive range of breakfast, including the “Bathtbuster” which enough to fill most people and costs just THB99. Some of the breakfasts are huge so opting for a smaller one may be best for newbies!

The Sportsman

The well-established The Sportsman on Soi 13 Pattaya Beach Road is one of the places where you can go and be confident that you will get top-quality, traditional pub grub. The food and service are great, and the prices represent excellent value of money. The breakfast is as good as anywhere in town.

The Queen Victoria

The Queen Vic as it is more affectionately known is an English-style pub located on Soi 6. In a similar manner to The Sportsman, they are well-established and serve traditional pub food. The English breakfast is delicious and is ideal for larger eaters! The prices are very reasonable, as well.

Livv Pattaya

For those living in East Pattaya, Livv Pattaya on Soi Khao Talo is a more upmarket but excellent value establishment. They serve a superb English breakfast, although it is perhaps not quite what most people would class as “traditional”. All the same, it is well worth trying as the food and service are again of the highest order.


Hemingway’s has gone from strength to strength and is a good quality English-style pub in as you head to down to Jomtien Beach on the main road. The venue is on a baht bus route, making it convenient for those who may be travelling from a bit further afield. The breakfast, along with their other food is excellent.


I-Rover, located on LK Metro in Central Pattaya, is another of the venues that are famed for their huge breakfast. They are open 24-hours a day, so if you are a night-owl looking for breakfast or anything else to eat, this could be a great option. The food is excellent, and the prices are very reasonable.

Simple Simon’s

Simple Simon’s is located on Jomtien Soi 5 and is very popular amongst expats and tourists alike. They have four different versions of their English breakfast to cater for different appetites with the largest being the “Full Big Monty!”
