Wow this place was puumping. Obviously a very busy Saturday night. Given that, the food came out quickly and was good. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely eat here again if in Canberra.

If you like beer it is the place to go. Unfortunately the Guinness has a low level % in alcohol, like everywhere in Australia. The meal was ok but not unforgettable, a bit comparable to a fast food.

Dropped in for dinner after cricket. Limited menu. Both ordered pasta with bacon and mushrooms. Food was bland, not enough mushrooms , parmesan cheese was cheap and nasty
