“Delightful food in a lovely setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Located in an old doctors surgery, you can see some of the olden day equipment they used to use. The building itself is a bit of a novelty and lovely to sit inside.

We sat outside in an area protected from the wind. A relaxed atmosphere, and the food was really lovely. Everything you want in a restaurant.

We would go back without hesitation.

“Good hearty pub food, with friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

If you want a good hearty meal, in a pub-type atmosphere, this is the place for you. Can get busy, and a little noisy but there's an upstairs dining area where you can sit down to a meal.

“Favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

My favourite pub in Wellington. The beer here is very good (as Kiwi beer goes), and the food is well worth a try, with a particularly good bar snacks menu. The atmosphere is excellent and the bar staff are really friendly (one astonishingly remembered us from a visit a week)

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

The most important part of this review is the beer was excellent, I do enjoy trying new beer and it was delicious! The food was great and nicely presented. The bar staff are very friendly, the atmosphere is very comforting and relaxed. This is a must.

“Great Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Down town on an entertaining corner.
Sit at the bar or a table............the atmosphere is nice where ever you are.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here and went back for "snacky food" on another occasion..............Super!!!

The food is very good, nicely presented and the beer is nice and cold.
Have been here on three occasions now and have never been disappointed.........
well worth a visit.
Prices are reasonable.
