“Good for a drink and bite to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

It's a pub. The food was good pub food and of course, plenty of drinks to choose from. A reasonably good lounge dining area but the inevitable neo signs and garishness associated with poker machines and Keno etc. were not far away.

“Below average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

We found the staff very lax, and the food well not worth the money paid. To be honest with you, if we realised it was that dismal and below the basic Melbourne pub fare, we would have walked straight past.

“Average food. Great service. Good spot for a drink and a bar meal.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

Don't go expecting fine dining and you won't be disappointed. A little pricey on some menu items though.
