Nice but not great

Went on a very busy night and noticed not many staff on. Was good, yum, decent sized meals. Very loud when full with people which makes you feel like you are yelling when talking to someone next to you. You get a timer which goes off when your food is ready and you collect yourself.

This is a great place, has been for years. It is very social. People meet here and chat effortlessly. That's what it's always been famous for. The food here's gone a bit ' fame fatale ' lately. On the basis of the past two visits seems to be more about what the cook wants than what I expect. Perhaps he's... More

Don't be put off by the plain exterior of the Rose Hotel. It has a great inner city pub vibe and a strong following by the locals who enjoy a cold beer and good pub food. The Rose has a great courtyard/beer garden which is most enjoyable on a sunny afternoon or balmy evening. In winter the over head gas... More

Staying in a nearby hotel, we were looking form some basic pub food and beers. This place met all expectations. Beers on tap are good (at least the ones we tried, didn't quite get through all 27 on tap). Food was good and reasonably priced. Would go back! Final note, check out upstairs, the bar is smaller, but it has... More

Went here on a Friday based on the craft beer selection on their website. Unfortunately the website didn't reflect what was on tap or in bottles. The pulled pork burger I ordered was cold and the chips were cold and not fresh. The cold meal may have something to do with the fact that there is no heater above the... More

Ive been here before for drinks. When I have visited, it has always been busy. This time, we tried the food as well. Average food. Burgers are pretty small. Someone had the roast, unfortunately it needed re-heating in the microwave. Its also a shame that there are smokers in the eating area. But the big let down this time was... More
