Change the staff in the ball and chain!!! The bar girl there couldn't be more rude! She wouldn't even look at me when I arrived! When I go to a place to have fun I would like to find at least a nice person. .....More

They have a reasonable range of beer, rather limited menu, but you can sit outside right across from the park which is nice on a sunny day. It's neither good nor bad, just a place to have a beer or two, although the decor is...More

Just passing by and went in for a quick drink. Awesome bar, very spacious and well designed. We landed up staying and ordering food which was excellent quality and value. The service matched the food and we were happy to have found the place.

Has got a good selection of Matilda Bay Brewery beers on tap. The atmosphere is relaxed and makes you feel like you're having a meal or a beer at your own place.
