It's not a cheap meal but around what I'd expect for... More

My son and I dropped in for a casual meal. Both of us were really looking forward to a good chicken parmesan - and we weren't disappointed. Generous portions and tasty.

I went there solo for a cheap $10 lunch, they were out of what I originally ordered. So the waitress let me order a dearer meal for $10. If was a very BIG Hamburger, so if you are a BIG eater? This is the pub for you.

My friends tell me steak was good... More

the food is generally good quality. service is good , not a great amount of variety on the menu and it is a little bit pricey for select items. the restaurant area around the bar is dark and dingy and could do with a freshen up.
