A friend suggested I meet him for lunch and designated The Caddy Shack as
the venue. I had to profess ignorance. The last time I had been to a ‘caddy
shack’ it was a small building on a golf course that sold cold water.
Fortunately, this was not The Caddy Shack he had in mind! However, after
sampling the food, I was so impressed I returned with the team to review
The Caddy Shack is set on Soi 8 Thepprasit, which you can access off
Thepprasit at the bottom of the dip, with a 7-11 on the corner. A few twists
and turns and The Caddy Shack is on your right after the Eden Bar on the
Suksabai village boundary. You can also approach it from Pattaya Third Road
turning at the traffic lights opposite Soi 17 (again with a 7-11 on the
corner). The building is clearly marked, so you will not miss it.
interior of the building is set up as an English style pub, with a sit-up
bar along one side, with the rest of the floor space being restaurant
tables, with comfortable, padded cane chairs. We went for lunch, and it was
certainly well patronized. These were people who did know where The Caddy
Shack was situated.
In keeping with the ambience, the fare on offer is predominantly English
food items, though there are some Thai favorites available as well. The menu
is also a photographic one, so you know what to expect. (More restaurants
should do this, especially if they want to attract international custom
which may not know its particular cuisine.)
The menu begins with their special breakfast at B. 85, and then into the
regular breakfasts which peak at B. 115. Great beginning to the day perhaps?
A couple of pages of sandwiches and jumbo rolls are next (B. 65-90), then
choices of pies at B. 160.
A restaurant favorite is fish and chips at B. 165, as are the roasts (pork
B. 165, beef B. 175 and lamb B. 245). Desserts range from B. 30-55 including
a home made apple pie.
There is also a Sunday special three course item with soup of the day, a
choice of roast beef, pork or chicken and dessert for B. 225. This
restaurant is certainly not going to break your piggy bank.
Most local beers are available and San Miguel Light, plus John Smith’s Extra
Smooth on tap. The wine list is limited, but the few bottles available are
around B. 750, plus a house red and white at B. 80 per glass.
I decided to have the gammon, egg, peas and chips (B. 150) and Madame went
for the roast lamb which came with roast potatoes, carrots, peas,
cauliflower and a Yorkshire pudding in pride of place (B. 245).
The lamb was cooked correctly, and came with mint sauce. The Yorkshire
pudding was crispy and the vegetables not overdone. The plate was filled to
My gammon came with English chunky cut chips which were also correctly
cooked, as were the peas. This was another item overflowing the plate.
Immense. (I also walked around and had a look at other diner’s plates. We
were not being given special consideration - everyone had a similar sized
Both Madame and I were full and there was no possibility of partaking of
desserts. With the size of the portions, I doubt very much if they ever sell
The Dining Out Team ate well at The Caddy Shack. The waitresses were
friendly and added to the atmosphere of warmth and hospitality. The food was
correctly cooked and in very large portions. It has no pretensions, but
serves good honest food at good honest prices. We would certainly go back.
It is clean, quiet and a no hassles oasis for those who would just like a
quiet drink. Off the beaten track a little, but well worth the visit. A
family venue without any shadow of doubt. Highly recommended.
