Our sincere apologies - it turns out that the landlord had contracted a builder to replace roofing 2 floors above and they had elected to go home for the evening without replacing the roofing. When it poured with very heavy rain we were the last...More

Pub style cooking. Waste of money,horrible atmosphere Won't eat there again.Be very careful with this place,the salad was dry with horrible condenced milk instead of dressing. Outdated furniture,very depressing environment Please think twice before to go there

This has to be one of the worlds best disguised restaurants. The surroundings and music is so bad it's almost great, the salad was a bit of lettuce and two olives, but the 200g eye fillet steak was the best steak, cooked perfectly rare, that...More

The steak was amazing. So tasty and cooked perfectly. The chips were good but came out a bit randomly, and my partner didn't get his mushroom sauce until he had already finished his meal. The salad was a bit average too. The service was great...More

We didn't have much choice for a public holiday for dinner. We were the only diners for the time we were there. Manager was a bit quirky, food was ok, nothing to rave about. It was like a one man band show. Not sure we'd...More

Tacky space. Overpriced menu. Overbearing manager. The food here would be better suited to rest home residents- but in saying that- I wouldn't feed my grandmother (or any other elderly person I cared about) the food that got served here. The salad was too small...More
