Cosy, bustling with great food and wonderful drinks of all types. Roast beef hot toasts are heavenly and I always start with a Negroni just to get the engine running. Rare beef involtini are a must and the Croquettes cannot be missed. All in all...More

Amazing neighbourhood local. Incredible food and drinks to match, beer wine and cocktails. Not easy on the wallet

A friendly local bar with a great selection of drinks, and a small, but excellent food selection. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.

What a great small bar! Located opposite the Maylands train station and easy street parking. Because of its size (only 56 patrons allowed I believe) seating is limited. So small groups of 4 or less is perfect. At front of house it's first in best...More

This tiny bar tucked away in Maylands nestled amongst a number of interesting shops. Opens at 5 so well worth getting to the area a little earlier for a stroll around. Once in side in resembles a olden day ship with booth seating on the...More
