I believe this establishment has been renovated, for the better. Possibly the best fish I have ever eaten, grilled Barra, a big call but genuinely sincere. The meals are reasonably priced, chilled out atmosphere, will return.

My partner and I enjoyed a drink or 6 from the great little bar with friendly service, plenty of selection of beer and a cool band. Place gets nice a full on a Saturday.

pretty much pub grub and probably not the best place in Ports to eat if your looking for gourmet food, good beer and service is ok, the locals get in for beer and its in a great spot,

Went there with a pregnant wife for some pub grub. Food was ordinary, sour cream on the nachos was an off white colour - didn't even resemble or taste like sour cream. The bacon on the works burger was diced, not fresh and was hardly even cooked. The lettuce was off and not washed. Very poor quality food. The staff... More

We came here with kids for dinner. Burger was 5/10. Fish was 4/10. Pizza was 2/10. It seems more like a place to go for drinking rather than food. Would not go back for food.

The staff here are very friendly but that's where the positives end. The tap beer was flat but the staff were happy to replace them with bottled beer. The food took over an hour to come out and the quality was terrible. The barramundi was so overcooked it was like leather and such a tiny portion for the price. The... More

If your looking for bad service, bad food and bad music then this is the place. Staff act too cool and drinks are always a long wait. Id recommend bar florian, Latin loafer, finnians or zebu. Don't waste your time.

Service almost non existent. Glasses dirty. At least three of the ten 'ales' on tap were not available. Food average. Only entertaining part of the evening was listening to the 'e harmony' daters at the next table. Will not be going back!
