Stopped by for a drink as eating elsewhere (the raw prawn, which I have already totally recommended). Service at the bar was nice and a fair choice of beers on tap as well as bottles. Plenty of indoor seating and nice outdoor seating spot to watch the world go by. Worth a stop for a drink would be my review

My partner and I have now re-visited this place on at least three occasions. Once in a lunch period and twice for an evening experience. The "vibe" continues as a place to meet and greet and party on. Good area out the back as well.

Good service but too expensive so as to cash in on the tourist market at the expense of locals. Food was OK but that's all and not worth the price. Drinks are expensive.

Here traveling for business and couldn't help but notice the big crowds so decided to call in for dinner. BIG MISTAKE ! Now if you are thirsty and content with a cold drink you can look away now as that ticked all the boxes. As for dinner......my advice is look somewhere else. I just paid $39 for a steak which...

Had dinner at this pub. Food is just ordinary, nothing special, price quite unreasonable. No customer service.

Bar staff nice, advised us we could order food and drinks at the same spot. Staff taking food reminded me of young McDonald staff with no idea or experience. "no you have to order drinks at the bar, I can't find the wine on the computer"... Meals came out at different times as the pizza oven is no where near... More

Unfortunately we were mistaken to think that the barramundi on the specials of the day list was going to be great. We paid $32 for very poor grade barramundi that smelt so 'fishy' it was churning our stomachs. If you know good barramundi it does not smell 'fishy'! The potatoes were hard, the broccoli was only blanched, the stems were... More
