Good bar gets very busy on weekends, food is good value and always with no issues. If you have a sweet tooth ask for the shared dessert plate. Staff although changing over time always seem very good.

It's a great place to meet up with a group. It's brilliant for a Sunday Session. It's quite large with plenty of options for seating. It has a sort of generic feel, but it is usually buzzing and is an easy place to be.

We were there for salsa night and enjoyed $10 spiced mojitos, amongst other liquid refreshments, and the live band. The food is functional pub, probably cooked by backpackers, and while largely inoffensive it was probably the worst fish in fish n chips I've had for...More

Great lunch menu with lots of options including share plates and small plates. I had the sliders with sweet potato chips, it was delicious. Lots of different places to sit. It was quite busy so must be popular.

Hi, themp3. What would you like to know about this restaurant? Hi, I am looking to bring a group of teenage girls out for a meal (8-10 all up) next Saturday night. Would be looking for seating for three (parents and sibling not wishing to be at the same table as remainder of group) and 5-7 at another table. Do we need to book? Cheers, Heather
