Used to serve the best bar food but tonight it was utter cap. Prefer a feed of KFC. Pitiful barmaid didn't even ask how the meal was. Maybe the pool of Chuck at my feet said it all.

Don't eat here!! Awful over priced food and the staff really don't care. The food suggested as a sharing meal only had enough for one ... ie the duck pancakes to share..'implying two people ..... only had three pancakes.... the servings were small and lacked flavour. The meals were over priced and the staff disinterested. Many better places to go... More

Had a pleasant meal here with family & friends recently. We shared some small plates of duck pancakes, crumbed prawns & chicken bites which were all tasty. Quite a long wait between this & the main course but we had plenty to talk about. The menu is quite extensive & we had all ordered different mains ranging from steak, fish... More

Walked past this place on the way to somewhere else and noted the sign that mentioned great steaks, which was what we were after. Well, the other place had changed its menu and there were no steaks on it, so back we trotted. Pub-style downstairs with dining room upstairs. Lovely atmosphere and it filled up quickly after we got there.... More

Had lunch in this establishment twice. Both meals were excellent. The snapper was the best I have had in a long long time. Very fresh and perfectly cooked. The beef schnitzel was also excellent. Service was great.

Comfortable and friendly environment but my lamb rump was under-cooked and gristly - I couldn't finish it. It was a bit overpriced for the standard of food.

Ideal for a quick lite meal or go upstairs for chilling out over a more extended starters and mains menu, never rushed.
