We booked the Chameleon Room for a 21st birthday celebration. Staff were helpful and engaging, finger food was first rate, bar range and prices excellent. Fun night had by all - and a great rooftop bar to adjourn to afterwards.

A lovely rooftop location on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We really enjoyed being able to sit down, chat and drink with the music being at a reasonable volume. I would love to try the food as it looked amazing. Will have to venture back!

One of the old type of pubs left in the area. No pokies which is nice. The steak night is particularly good value.
