Nice location

This place was fully refurbished not long ago. It is much better now than it used to be. Service is good drinks are reasonable priced. And the view is fantastic.

Stopped in for a couple of drinks and a pizza on Friday night. Place was very busy with lots of young and not so young looking for a fun place to enjoy a noisy get together. Music was top 40 and plenty of screens to watch all the different sports. Food menu was varied and reasonably priced. We had the... More

My partner and I decided to host an icebreaker dinner before our wedding in July. From initial contact via email I have been blown away with the service, professionalism and response time given by both the General Manager and the Functions Manager.

We dropped in here on a Monday night for a few drinks. The bar is very big and well designed. We choose a seat outside by a flaming torch. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was friendly. We were pleased with the drinks list; cocktails for $13, Beer for $7 and wine for $12. They also have pool tables... More

I thought I'd give this place a go. I had a beer there on a Saturday two weeks ago. Its a good location and the staff were friendly behind the bar. I sat on the deck and started to read my paper. I was approached and asked to move as they had a booking coming in in five minutes and... More

Highly recommend this place. Made a group booking and everyone was really easy to work with. The bar area is great, and the ambiance very good. The portions of the food were too large! Not often I write that line! Would strongly recommend as the food and staff were very good

Great little pub on the edge of the marina. Good drinks selection, clean and friendly. Drinks over a few nights and settled on Snacks of Mexican. Food was dry - beef tacos and nachos weren't much better. Didn't have a proper meal but the meals we seen being delivered looked good at the very least.
