I've not eaten here as yet, but the pub itself is great and one of the best in the eclectic pub-heavy Newtown area. And there's free live music here on Thursday and Sunday nights, featuring mostly interesting and funky acts

Craft beer and bistro food the main attractions here. Small beer garden full of smokers. Food is burger and sandwich centric, large servings at reasonable prices. Plenty of craft beers on tap.
