We visited this pub on Easter Monday lunch as a party of 4 and the experience was certainly nothing to rave about. We had 2 chicken parmas and 2 lamb salads which were just ok. The service was basic; nothing special, but I guess that...More

We came here for a few friends for lunch. Love the outdoor space, the artwork along the walls and the owners making you feel welcome! The meals are all delicious, and such a generous size. The cheese garlic bread is to die for. The public...More

Stopped in for lunch with some colleagues for work. Excellent Parma and chips on Monday special for $15 and a nice craft beer selection (I chose a hand drawn chocolate porter which was delicious). Will definitely be back.

Dogs are free to roam indoors and out in this pub. Perfect for the weekend walk with the pooch. The food is superb too so everyone is happy.

I love this place, & have been here more times than I can count (helps that I live a leisurely 3 min walk away). This is a great little local; a dining room with a fireplace, 2 out door areas, a pool table & it's...More

I'll be upfront; we don't drink but we have been to many pubs and eat out a lot. The food here is great; nothing startling but it's the basics done well and with fresh tasting ingredients. The fireplace in winter adds ambience and the staff...More

Music was the need we had and having heard this place had music, off we went to discover the offering. It was a two piece gathering, both with guitars and good voices. One of the staff even did a number with them. Sheer delight to...More
