Was invited for a round of beers here and stayed on for the food. Chose the buffalo wings spicy and sweet came with a blue cheese dipping sauce very nice. The mushroom taco was small and good value but the standout had to be the Bruny island beer battered oysters on a roll with salad and fries. The oysters were beautiful and fresh and again came with a sauce. It's the American themed grunge look about the pub that appeals. Staff very knowledgeable and casual happy to give samples. Service was quick and how many help your self sauces and chilli based item can one place offer?

This is a great relaxed place, with an excellent selection of beers on tap none of which is run of the mill and a southern US inspired menu. We had onion rings (best around town), a cheeseburger and a chicken burger with buffalo sauce, both burgers came with fries and both were delicious. Service was the cheerful casualness expected of a pub, we are looking forward to our next visit.

Went into the Winston for the first time today since the ally cat days. Six of us sat down and couldn't decide why we wanted from the menu. (Everything looked delicious) half ordered the cheese burgers half ordered the pulled pork sandwiches. Both were cooked to perfection. Cheese burgers dripping with melted cheese. Pulled pork sandwiches melting in your mouth. And a great selection of uneque beers and wines. I would recommend the windson to anyone looking for a quality pub meal at a cheap price.

Very lively crowd on a Friday night - great selection of beers, ciders and wines. The menu has a USA flavour ranging from onion rings, chilli fries, burgers and ribs. We both had burgers and they were a little tasteless. The fries didn't have enough salt and overall it was a little disappointing. Would come back for a pre-dinner drink but not for the food.
