“Where's the Food?”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Went for Breakfast at this quiet little place in the Octagon. We were left wondering where the Food was. $19.50 for a Breakfast that included one mushroom, one egg, the smallest peice of Bacon in History, A hashbrown, we asked where the bread was but that would have been extra we were told.

I'm not that impressed and word of mouth flys faster then good reviews.

“New Year Eve's Hot Spot”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Our family enjoyed the livley atmosphere of the small Irish type pub.....with both indoor and outdoor seating. Great platter to share with others over good wine and hospitality. A very cosy setting for a couple or small group of friends. In the heart of the Octagon in the sun all day.
High recommended.
