My partner and I attended a concert here Friday, December 11th, and being from the Central Coast, we were pleasantly surprised. This was the first time we attended the venue. All the staff members went out of their way to help us with venue information and queries and were just friendly overall. We felt quite safe in this venue throughout...

A classic mid range music venue with decent sound. My pals had the burgers which are supposed to be some of the best in town. And reported them to be tasty enough.

Went here in July to watch Dan Sultan and Stonefield with a group of friends. The atmosphere was friendly and upbeat. Great friendly staff. Great pub venue, good vibe. It was like the old days, back in the 80s!! Will definitely be back to see more music.

Stayed in a twin room with a friend for 3 nights we had in Newcastle. Whilst the place looked a bit run down, overall we had a pretty good stay and at $35 each per night it was pretty good value. Room was a decent size for the two of us, and even though there wasn't much in the way...

Got bitten all over the body by bed bugs, for the first time in my life, while staying there in January 2012. My neck & torso, both arms and legs were almost completely covered by bites, the intense itching only stopped after 4 weeks. Although the weekday staff were very helpful after my complaint, the manager refused to refund or...
