The TA members got it right. The vibe in this little place is awesome. I took my partner there for his birthday and it lived up to every expectation. The atmosphere was laid back with funky tunes. I wish we were able to catch the live music on Sunday (next time guys). The variety of tapas and mains were simple... More

We'd toyed with the idea of popping in here, and once we'd seen the menu and seen the place, we were glad we had.

Had an epic meal with top notch cocktails and some funky music. Great inner city vibe in a sleepy country town. Service is nice and relaxed but always on point. We love stopping in at Shortys when we're in Lennox.. Great job guys..

Love coming here for drinks. Want to come for Tapas. Staff are extremely efficient but extremely laid back at the same time! The place is small, intimate and super quirky.

Shorty's has such a great atmosphere in the evening, but until last night I hadn't realised what superb food they do too. The fish pie was just brilliant - superbly accompanied by a chilled Sauvignon Blanc, great service and lovely people.
