Went here to meet people on a Wednesday night and it was quite a busy place. We ordered the Chicken Schnitzel which came with fries and salad and was very nice.

Of this pub, I love the huge beer garden, the lovely staff, and its surroundings. Perfect for a b-day drink with friends as well as a meal with your partner. I can only talk bout beers-nice- and wedges which were really good.

If you like relaxing in a beer garden then you will love this pub. Its got some unpretentious charm inside and they do great pub food. Our steak sanwiches were cooked medium and were very tasty as were the nachos. Attracts a diverse inner west crowd with a chilled vibe.
