“Great atmosphere and beer! Locale when there!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

all beers on tap with a wide selection and the food is good. There is generally always a great vibe as it is located at the V&A Waterfront and has a mix of locals and tourists.

“Not my next choice which is usually regular!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

This popular restaurant at the Waterfront is usually a locals spot to grab some friends, listen to good music, watch the game and have a cold one but it seems to start lacking in customer service when it's busy.

The waiters seemed out of control- not to mention the swearing from their mouths and shouting to each other... but slow service, food was completely average for usual greatness.

It seems to be lacking lately and needs to step up its game for the tremendess amount of competition located at the trendy V&A

“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We spent our last afternoon having lunch here. The staff was very friendly and the pub food was good. The guys did a 7 sampler beer tasting and enjoyed it all. A nice setting outside on the patio to watch all the people coming in and out of the waterfront. Recommend it for a casual fun lunch.

“Great”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Visiting from Newcastle upon Tyne UK, very chilled, prices good and entertainment spot on. Good to see a Newcastle brown ale mirror in the place. Had the ribs and chips and the boerwoorst and was brilliant. Staff very friendly . No complaints at all, highly recommended as a quick drink or a all nighter
