Glad we got that sorted, you are definitely still open , not that there was any doubt in my mind, but still don't know if you are now open earlier for me to enjoy a pint before going home at lunch time .

Re: UDON TAP Dissaperance Clarfied (Sponsor)

Good evening ALL ..

Just logged on for the first time n several days , ney weeks and read the Tap thread .. to clarify ...

I have not dissapeared , i am alive kicking and enjoying some new pass times ..one of which is skateboarding !!!

Busy with 3DM our wholesale booze bizz , now we have office space in Bkk and a new regional office and store is under construction in Buriram , this said our HQ remains in Udon next door to The Tap .. this is where i roost when in Udon .

My time is now split between the 3 locations and i can assure all that when in Udon i work closely the owners of the Udon Tap including George , and all pass words etc for face book and UM were all handed over etc ... so no need for any more inaccurate comments made based upon pure guess work with regard to all the above issues.

When we sold the Tap i carried on with a bit of marketing on there behalf as agreed then drifted off into the etha thereafter choosing not to get involved in how the new owners chose in which direction to take the business. when in Udon it is my local as i live next door and i think the beer there is fantastic ;) ..

Suffice to say i have been away from UM posting wise quite some time and upon logging on noticed a few things .. Lots of sponsors advertising banners but not keeping the threads updated , strange but after reading a few it became obvious that most threads for one reason or another more often than not turn into a sh*t fight regardless of the thread topic ... is this the reason postings have dwindled ??? UM today is certainly way different to the past (chern chim early years) when sponsors could honestly say business revenue came via it , there was in general sensible banter and debate in the past now it seems too many just log on to stir the Sh*t and start arguments ..is life for both those here and for others living overseas desperately wanting to live her perminantly so empty and sad this is now a form of enjoyment ??

Just MY OPINION .. im off skateboarding then for a pint at the Tap .... tatty bye

DM .. dissapearing Jon

There's a TV in the riff-raff end but you may need to get in before 8 PM to ensure getting a good seat at the bar. Some regular habitués tend to squat and get sh!tfaced at the picnic tables outside instead.

@ OLD GRUMPY ...

Got back into Udon yesterday and mentioned opening hours to the Tap guys ... seems they are planning to change things a bit regarding opening times , as soon as staffing rotas n personal are sorted will be opening at 12 noon for a small lunch menu n beers of course , its seems quite a few customers like to partake earlier than the current 4pm opening times . This should be sorted and operational with in the next 1-2 weeks .

A point to note .. and absolutely no bias here just saying as i find my experiences .

I noticed they had added a new imported steak on the menu so thought i would try one ... i eat steak all over the place on my travels including Bkk (crazy prices) but must say the steak i ate in the Tap last night was the best i have ever had in 20 years here in Thailand , NEW ZEALAND SOUTH ISLAND GRASS FED , choice or ribeye or sirloin , nice size 350-400g cut cooked medium rare , i had the ribeye n it came with potato wedges salad n pepper sauce ... a few of our old regulars in situ so stayed n had a few beers so cant be exact on the menu price n dont really look at prices where ever i choose to eat .

Again before anyone accuses me of back slapping and bollocks like that ... i live next door its handy , if i had a **** meal i would say so .. BUT I DIDNT quite the opposite .

In between slavations I commented how good it was and Geprge confirmed the steaks are also gonna be sold chilled/frozen to take away .... no sign of him yet today but will ask the menu price of the one i ate last night .

Disclaimer - Paul , Emm n George the owners of the Tap are unable to log in to UM for some reason so said i would drop on a update opening time issues etc....

Just to keep you apprised of the UTTH's concern for the health and safety of their customers, fall arresters will be available for those unfamiliar with using the picnic tables outside.

Heard a whisper that the Tap may be opening around mid-day later this month, can anyone confirm as there's
nothing on here to even say they are still in business .Strange!

Thanks for that must pop in this week. No I don't use Facebook, far to intrusive for my liking, sure there must be many like me so why not use their sponsored topic and keep us all informed. As I said Strange.

I believe the Tap stopped being a UM sponsor about 6 months ago. Hence no updates.

The topic heading quite clearly shows in big letters "Sponsor" so who are we to believe, but in any case do you have to be a sponsor to reply to other members questions.?

The keyboard snipers and gossips are a reason why some sponsors tend to keep mum on UM. These sponsors have their regular customers and they have other avenues for news updates and advertising.

If someone has a complaint, it is always best brought up directly with the sponsor, in person at the point of sale. Otherwsie, contact can be via email, phone call, FB or LINE messaging or a PM.

Posting a complaint, however legitimate, on a public internet forum... well, let's just say nobody really wins except maybe the keyboard snipers, gossips and other habitual misery guts who may never, ever shop or eat there but have personal issues with a sponsor. You know who you are.

FWIW, one doesn't need to be a FB member to view any sponsors FB page; I'm not a FB member. If you click the appropriate button on the FB log-in pop-up prompt (circled in red below), it minimizes and you can scroll their page, see their specials and probably much more importantly, see their alternative contact details if you need to make a complaint.

This public service announcement brought to you by tamada. No fees or other benefits or enticements have been paid, offered or implied by the owners and operators of the UTTH for this service.
