Sheepshank Public House

Ship To Shore
Some say Bangkok is best admired from the river, where you’ll get a fantastic glimpse of a city that bustles not around its ring-roads and motorways but along its all-important, historic waterways. And making such a trip even more worthwhile is the chance to round off a day on the water with a meal at Sheepshank Public House, a new bistro from the owners of the highly-acclaimed Seven Spoons. Set in what was once an old shipyard, the gorgeous former industrial space of high ceilings and red brick walls manages to retain an intimate vibe with low lighting, dark woods, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the iconic Rama VIII Bridge lit up at night.

Executive chef Somkiat Pairojmahakij has maintained his focus on local produce, and the menu is heavy with gloriously fresh seafood options like sizzling razor clams with pancetta and fennel butter sauce, and crab and green apple salad with a Dijon mustard dressing. Even heartier mains, such as oxtail tortellini with brown butter, walnuts and crisp-fried sage, and slow-cooked octopus and creamed corn risotto will leave you feeling sated. Although sadly Pairojmahakij hasn’t brought over his innovative line in Seven Spoons cocktails, he has instead stuck to classics like mojitos and Singapore Slings, as well as a neat selection of wines, craft and Italian beers. Ahoy, sailor!
