Funky little bar, great live music

If you're not into the pubbing or clubbing scene, this is the place you want to go. It's funky and caters for those with alternative tastes in boutique beers and cocktails. We were in Port Macquarie for a weekend away, so not sure if this place has live music all the time, but the night we were... read more

We came here with kids for dinner. Burger was 5/10. Fish was 4/10. Pizza was 2/10. It seems more like a place to go for drinking rather than food. Would not go back for food.

The staff here are very friendly but that's where the positives end. The tap beer was flat but the staff were happy to replace them with bottled beer. The food took over an hour to come out and the quality was terrible. The barramundi was so overcooked it was like leather and such a tiny portion for the price. The... More

If your looking for bad service, bad food and bad music then this is the place. Staff act too cool and drinks are always a long wait. Id recommend bar florian, Latin loafer, finnians or zebu. Don't waste your time.

Service almost non existent. Glasses dirty. At least three of the ten 'ales' on tap were not available. Food average. Only entertaining part of the evening was listening to the 'e harmony' daters at the next table. Will not be going back!

The bar staff were very helpful & friendly. I found there was some confusion between ordering a meal & having it delivered to the table. The food was of average quality. The enteretainment on the night was of the highest calibre watching Jake Davey & his band perform

We went for the Open Mic on a Tuesday. Had some cocktails and enjoyed the music by some local talent. Although it was a very young crowd, the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed.
