Excellent craft beer pub, food is reasonable but could be better

I usually pop in here once a month as the rotating taps of 10 to 15 beers is the best range I've seen anywhere in Sydney and it never fails to disappoint, and I don't mind watching a bit of sport on the TVs on Friday & Saturday nights. Staff are friendly, and they don't appear to have a credit... read more

The worst vegetarian food on the planet! Soggy polenta chips. Deep fried vege in pasta. Horrid burnt chips! The beer is great the food is TERRIBLE!

I booked a Christmas function here as I had been a couple of times before and the food was excellent. However, I had no idea that it was going to be so noisy. It was very frustrating as it was extremely hard to hear people at your own table speaking. I am happy to go back and enjoy the delicious... More

Reliably good food and service. Great outdoor space, excellently fitted with big screen for showing sport events. A good local for relaxed Sunday sessions.

The bar is great but food is average and the dining area stale and rsl like. You are paying top price for pub food which is not only boring but made worse by the awful carpet and lack of decor.

It's liovely heading into a Newtown boozer nowadays that is unassuming, largely free from fads and fashions and is quietly certain of what it offers. The craft beers on tap here are expertly selected and curated, while a couple of the old barfly faves (looking at you, Reschs) still stake out their turf. Combine these serious(ly good) libations with solid... More

Had the pulled pork burger for lunch recently and it was very tasty. The bar had the traditional selections of beer but the taps weren't working that day so only bottled beer was offered. Only other issue is there isn't a lot of parking around, so if it's busy you may have to drive around a bit.

Our favourite restaurant on Monday for the daily special of rump steak and fries! The best cut chips and well cooked steak! We even have it rare and it's cooked to perfection. The meat seems very fresh, however, for those of us we have it well done, it tend to be a bit tough but .... all made up by... More

Good pub food with a reasonable range of choices beyond your usual burger and fries. Newly renovated it is quite smart. Has good music on a Sunday from 4 if you like country and bluegrass
