Door staff were intimidating and tried more to prevent entry than encourage you from going in. Once inside music and atmosphere was good but the bar staff had the same attitude as the doorman where he was flipant and unfriendly demeanor. Won't be back!!

Particularly liked the key lime pie! Lots to choose from. Good location. Didn't try the food. Friendly atmosphere.

Great food and ambience. Our server Hugo was really fun - coming over from time to time to top up our glasses and crack a joke.

Lovely staff & comfy but noisy families around made it hard to settle in. Had good cheese platter but decided not to stay for meal as too noisy & menu didn't grab us.

I guess it shouldn't be a surprise considering the door is kept open at all times, but the first thing I noticed were the flies on the bar, around my head, and surrounding an empty pitcher on the bar. we ordered drinks, and I will say that mine was delicious. about 1/4 way thru, I noticed a dead fly in...

The food was fine, although my husband's steak was cooked medium well instead of medium rare as he had requested. The main reason I am giving three stars is that this is the only restaurant/pub we ate in during a three week trip through Ireland, England and Scotland where we had a waiter with an attitude. I don't know if... More

Had on of their much talked about Sunday roasts. Well worth the money! An abundance of tasty pub food with a joint of beef which we carved ourselves, also included a bottle of wine. Nothing flash about the place, just tasty wholesome pub food which is value for money.

We visited for Sunday lunch and were guest of a couple who had pre-ordered a joint of beef. The special of a joint of beef, pork or a chicken came with a bottle of wine. Three of us liked the idea of carving our own joint but myself, I prefer a less fatty piece of beef and not have to... More

I caught up with a school friend here over a few drinks and some good food. I had the fish which was delicious. It's worth ordering a side order of chips with that, and the portion was big enough to do the two of us. Neither of us bothered with a starter but we both went for the dessert. The... More

Love this place. Ideal location just off Georges Str. Very central. Great vibe, very relaxed atmosphere. Loved the music, cocktails. Really nice crowd and friendly staff. It's my new favourite spot!
