We went here on a whim for a Saturday night family dinner. I was so impressed with the service and the food was pretty good too! For me, service is top priority now because there are many places that have good food but average run of the mill service. I would totally go back based on the customer service. You... More

Needed a handy place to grab lunch, make some phone calls. Basically pointed at menu items while on a phone call and server was friendly and accommodating. Fish tacos were one of the best I've ever had, could have used some sauce underneath the fish and slaw, but was very tasty. Followed up with a soup and salad, soup of... More

Arrived for a late dinner on a Friday. No issues being seated. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Ended up ordering based on his recommendation and the Fish & Chips were very good. Karaoke began just after 9pm, not much of a crowd. Also wasn't our scene/should of sat in the bar to avoid it.

I visited here with my partner and it was average in terms of how the food tasted and it's offerings. The service was not great. It was not the fault of the server as she was overloaded with too many people as she working alone. Took too long for food and even the bill at the end. Not sure I... More

If there was a good rating, this restaurant would have received that. The food was good, the service really good, and prices okay. We had Cobb salad, a nice full plate, and fish and chips, which was a very tasty and large piece of fish. It is worth eating here

Its an awesome pub, a little noisy when events are happening on the Box. Otherwise food has always been good, served quick as possible. Chicken with bacon delicious with fries or sweet potato fries even better. Pork juicy and tasty bbq with salad

We visited here with our family of 32. This is a local place for some of our family and I have to say, I can see why. The drinks flowed all night in the warm, sunny evening on the terrace. The food was great as was the service by the staff. We visited again and we had exactly the same... More
