“Lovely little bar”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

Lovely little bar across the road from planet video on beaufort St. When ever i'm looking at the books i always stop by for a drink it's it's always been a nice experience.

The drinks are always decent value and range and the vibe is a friendly older crowed.

“Great Atmosphere very popular”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Great Atmosphere very popular, I like a bar which has specials and this place does, It popular with everyone and being in the heart of Mt Lawley its frequented with happy customers from all walks of life. I come here quite a lot but Sundays are a great afternoon they have $10 Pizza and a Pint which is insane value for money! It obviously works because their main competitor down the road was empty when I pop in on the way through. The Flying Scotsman has a vast array of beers and other beverages. Some of which are specials of the week making them pretty cheap.
My one complaint is that is really really noisy I felt my self shouting all the time to be heard.

“Nice pub surprising food”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Always nice when you get surprised by pub food that extends beyond just burgers and steak sandwiches. We ordered a tasting platter for $30 that was really alot of food for the price. There were some very good squid rings, beautiful sausage, dips and a great deal of other items. Didn't care much for the meatballs or plum bbq ribs but most was pretty good.
Washed down with a pint of pale ale and very enjoyable indeed.
This is a very nice pub for having a no pressure, no fuss, relaxing evening meal and drink and the service is good too. Cheers.

“I Like It,”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

This is a great spot to watch Mt Lawley go by. The food is OK, it has had the same menu for a long time now & I think it is resting on a good reputation.

They have a few good beers on tap, an the menu does have a good range. BUT IT NEVER CHANGES!

My rating is Location 10 - beer 8 - food 6 out of 10.

Good spot, could be great!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We went up stairs to the "Defectors bar" if your into cocktails this is the place to go. Has a good atmosphere for young and old, nice furnishing etc could be a bit dark. Excellent views of the city from the balcony both day and night.
