I've visited this amazing restaurant a number of times. Each has been great. Food and service has always been brilliant. Definitely worth a visit for a fantastic Thai! My partner and I love the feel and the character of the restaurant. A quirky old style English pub with best Thai food around!!

we went mid week for a business meeting, the place was almost completely full with guidance. Good choice of wine and beer, very friendly staff, as we were ordering the waiter mentioned a mid week deal where a starter and the main course was only £10 together. A complete delicious bargain. We naturally spent far more drinks to make up... More

The food is very good indeed at the Navigator. I had the red duck curry which was beautifully cooked. The only issue that I I had is that the rice portion that I ordered as an accompaniment (thai rice with pineapple) was rather small. The only other thing that could be improved was that this was a works lunch and... More

Service was good even though busy. The red beef curry was brilliant and ginger chicken was also very good. All washed down with a well kept real ale.... More

Turned up for lunch with the wife, however when we arrived there was a couple of air conditioning engineers there, which usually doesn't present a problem unless they decide to talk over the phone whilst we were eating. This was very rude and I was hoping the staff might usher them away. Nope they were there for a good 10... More
