Nice atmosphere but food was disappointing. Dry chicken, chunky chips were quite miserable and more like the dregs from the bottom of the bag and a bit oily tasting. Pasta had a dollop of garlic added and not stirred through evenly and lacked seasoning.

This place is located centrally in Alexandra, it has good beers on offer wide range of wines.

It is relatively new place so decor is modern and outdoor seating is comfortable.
The food is "OK" for basic, Pub meal level of cooking.
When we were there we had the feeling the place was understaffed and the kids Burger was disappointing, it was a "soft ground meat" which tasted like it was baked in the oven or reheated.
The chips and Sausage on sticks was ok - but how can you go wrong with deep fried food..?
the fried Calamari was good.

Verdict: OK for drinks and nibbles.

Wait staff seemed a little inattentive and served our vegetarian order with meat and both carbonara orders were bland and certainly didnt have the garlic stirred in as it was thick in patches. Chicken in the burgers was dry and stringy.
Desserts were adequate however far less whipped cream would be appropriate as just bulked up with it.
Also noticed same wait staff had another tables orders wrong and had to be redone.
Overall presentation okay despite the issues above.
