Typical pub grub - sports bar

Handy place to eat but basic pub grub. If you pick a busy evening you could have to wait for your food. Sports bar, so be prepared for tv screens all around. You can eat outside if the weather is good to escape them.

Stopped in for an evening meal, great wee bar with really good food. Pub style meals but plenty of it and good value. Good wines and a nice cosy wee bar/bistro. Staff very very good and service was good and no great delays in food arriving. Would go there again

Hubby and I decided to to try this place as we hadn't been before. Probably wouldn't go back. I had the pork belly.... wouldn't recommend. Crackling was chewy and inedible let and the pork was fatty and tough, very disappointing. Hubby enjoyed the fries that were with his burger.

The portions of food were very large - I wanted something light so I had a chowder but it was incredibly filling. All the food was very good but the sauce with the mussels could have been thicker. Friendly staff who made sure we didn't leave just because they didn't have a table then and there.

After 3 weeks travelling in NZ, and generally having good dining experiences, it came as a shock to find places like this still exist. Service was surly and appallingly slow (45 minutes wait for simple pub grub). When the food (fish and chips) arrived, the fish was poor quality and badly cooked, and the chips were soggy. The whole meal... More

That's my biggest complaint, cameras on the toilet, wrong, just wrong. I was intending on eating at 7 but this place was all that was open. $8 for a 440ml of speights is not a very funny joke, it's speights! Nothing special, and neither is the bar so 8$!? The food was OK, they were really run off their feet... More

We went with my boyfriend for dinner. First the waitress didnt take care of us, we had to ask her the menus. Then we ordered, I asked for.the type of teas they have because they weren't in the menu and she forgot to ask. The pizza.menu should have more variety, we had cranberry chicken pizza and was a weird flavour,... More

Food was average but the service was shocking. The owner was very rude when I asked to return the seafood chowder that came from a packet.
