This is a nice bar. Good drinks selection. Food was very nice. Lots of packed in seating. But cozy feel. Very busy in the evenings and likely not to find a table to sit at. Would recommend for a pint.

Warm space with plenty to look at a wide variety of beers. The food was good not great and steak was well below Aussie expectations, we ate spoilt. Chicken and mushroom pie was good though sauce could have been slightly thicker. Service was attentive.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
