“Typical Pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place is your typical local suburban pub. Noisy when crowded. Drinks & food priced ok for what it is. No good if only with small group-too noisy.

." Pay as you go ordering"(with buzzer) means you can order anything from a plate of chips, shared pizza or large individual meals.The menu offers great range of fresh and creative meals, including cook your own steaks.Vegetarian and kid's menu available.

“Good Pub Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012 via mobile

An order at the counter and pick up your meal when buzzed. Good atmosphere and most of your usual meals are offered. The cook your own steak is offered but I rarely choose that option. I'll do that on my own BBQ if I wanted to cook.

Drinks from the pub bar so beverages are well catered for.
