Good but be prepared to wait for your food

Was here for a family Sunday lunch. The food was excellent but the baked chicken took 40 mins - way too long. The beers were good and the service was good as well. We got two free beers due to the long wait on the chicken

The beer selection is good, and food is slightly better quality than your average local pub. This place perhaps suffers a little because there are so many good restaurants further down Northcote Rd.... I feel this is trying to cater to the after work drinkers settling in for a good selection of different pints, as well as a more refined... More

We dropped in here for a quick drink around lunchtime on a Sunday when scouting out the locality for future trips to stay with friends who live locally. They offer a small range of real ales plus some keg beers & ciders, although the guy who served us was not that well versed in their individual characteristics. It is a... More

We used to go there two years ago and the food was excellent. Yesterday I ordered a hot dog. The sausage - because nothing else was there - was served in a dull and dry bun. On the side they poured some mustard in a small plate with some tasteless sour crowd. It didn't look good and it didn't taste... More

I haven't been here for a really long time and fancied a drink! It was a sunny day with people outside and the football on (really quietly) inside. The beer selection is brilliant and the wine wasn't too bad either. The food selection looked good - I only saw the menu, I never ordered anything. Not a bad place to... More

1st time at this place. The barman offered/recommended to make a pornstar martini. It was disgusting - drink just tasted like syrup. don't offer something you don't know how to make. Maybe it was my fault, should have ordered a beer instead had I known.

I was stood by the bar and got sprayed in detergent by a barman cleaning a pump. This ruined my shirt whilst the barman just laughed.

I really like this bar and they have a an amazing selection of beers. The bar men are knowledgable and very quick to serve you, unlike allot of bars in the area. Its in a nice location a bit further down Northcote road from the really busy area, its probably why Johnny Vaughan makes it his local. The food is... More

It's a nice bar to drink a beer, but they also serve amazing burgers! Maybey it's better to make a reservation (it's not so big), but it's really worth it!
