“Great Food & Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Great seafood, staff pretty friendly.
But apparently local knowledge has it that it can be a bit of a different place depending on the crowd.

“Great Local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Had a great meal and with friendly service. The portion sizes can be quite big, but this is great for the guys. And also has Monteiths on tap which they also love.

“Tasty food - not much menu variety”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The food here was pretty good... not brilliant. I think you'd struggle to find an adequate vegetarian meal - the menu was heavily weighted towards 'meaty'.

The service was okay. Not rude, but not particularly fast or enthusiastic.

That said, this is a good place for a few drinks and a casual meal. Just not outstanding.

“Food so so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is really two venues, a sports bar and a restaurant, separated by some screening. The service was very good, but the food was bland and my lamb shank was surrounded by mashed up vegetables in a tasteless sauce.

“Good for a pub meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I had heard a lot about this place, a lot of people rave about it.

Naturally I expected great things...I'm a little let down, it really is just a regular pub serving average coffee and average pub meals.

Prices are not too bad however.
