I've been here twice now. Once with a big group of guys and once for a date with my wife. They have had pretty good service, although the food has always been served at a snails pace. Drinks were great and atmosphere is nice. Food...More

Great classy and clean atmosphere and cool temp from outside 33C. Tasty beer and great service. Prices overall little higher than other pubs in area. Would recommend a visit.
