Brunch menu with lots of breakfasty options and some lunch options. My husband ordered the calamari entree ($16.50) and really enjoyed it. The portion size was good. I ordered the Sandwich with pulled braised brisket ($24,50). It comes with a portion of wedges. The beef was very tasty with a great tasting sauce and slaw. Good size portion. Service was... More

We went here for an Anniversary Dinner. The food was excellent, good sized portions and a good variety to choose from. Excellent service from our attentive and friendly waitress. We usually come here for drinks and late lunch so Dinner was a very lovely change.

Went with a group of Cantabarians. Had a fun evening. Food and wine was very good. For a busy place the waiter was attentive and onto it! Highly recommend and in a great location

Went there for lunch on week end. Place was a little quiet but filled up quickly. We got sat outside on front patio which is covered and surrounded by plastic so as to block nasty wind that morning. Got looked after quickly and we picked from lunch menu which had about a dozen or so choices offering a variety of... More

Great atmosphere and selection of beers. Wednesday is cheap drinks which is always a plus. This bar is popular with the plus 40's and the Merivale cougars who are always hunting for there next prey. Situated in Merivale it is close to good restruants and other venues.

Our group from work came here to farewell a colleague. Beside the fact that there is not enough parking, side room the put us in was nice and away from the noise of the bar. That was the best part. The service, however, was lacking: there was only one waitress (in a room of 20) and it took her a... More

The restaurant is dark and, on a cold winters day, more heating would've helped. The service was friendly, but slow, despite it not being very busy. Twice when we asked for more coffees, we had to ask again. The food was only just warm enough and not very well presented for the price. We haven't been there for about 6... More
