Staying nearby so needed to find somewhere to watch the All Blacks and get a feed and this was a good choice. Good food with a good atmosphere and good staff.

Stopped by after work for a drink and a bite. They had a fairly nice selection of beers and food. I went with the lamb rump and it was nice. Cooked well and nice flavour. There was also a fair amount of lamb on it....More

We were there for lunch on a weekday and had a burger (which for some extent tastes like burned meat) and chicken wings which was ok but their sauces was good. Comparing the food you get, the price was expensive.More
