......English bitter.....we'll you need to be English to get it ;) Good Brewery, a good range of well served Beer. Bar lacks atmosphere, needs some work there, but I'm sure it will come. Beers tasty, great start on the craft scene in Vanuatu.

Unless you love breathing in exhaust fumes and loud traffic I wouldn't recommend sitting here for a beer. We ordered the special 'wheat beer' which when it came out tasted like raspberry cordial!! Very strange. The staff exchanged it for their 'bitter', which was quite nice. Frequented by tourists, it's got a seedy feel to it.

We popped into the bar to get a cold drink to escape the heat and dust. We tasted some fine beers brewed on site and decided to eat there too. Quite a lovely surprise with ample well cooked burgers. It was so good we thought we would come back for another meal this time in the evening, what a change,... More

This place was great for a quick casual meal. Sit out on the terrace and enjoy watching the hustle & bustle on the street right in front of you. You can order well known bottled beers as well as their own brewed beer & cider. I think their own beer is a little on the flat side if you compare... More

Stopped in for a cold beer and a burger for lunch. Beer was cold and tasty and the burger was big and juicy with a side order of the local fries. Nice sitting on the verandah just watching everyone on the street. The day was warm so the built in sprinkler spray system that went off every few minutes was... More

We have only had pizzas here. A bit average - nothing exceptional but not too bad either. Sitting out on the balcony can be a bit like sitting on the side of a main road and breathing in the fumes of the vehicles that go past. The inside areas tend to be dominated by sports TV.

I've just been on my 5th trip to Vanuatu, and I keep saying I'll give this joint one more try, on the basis I wanted to support a place that brews its own beers and cider. One more time it lets me down. In the past the lager or ale was a little off or just not the best, but... More

I enjoy the location and staff here, but I have mixed feelings on the food and drinks. A number of times the in-house brewed beer has come out flat, sour or just not that great. On the other hand, the in-house cider is great. Food is generally good, but not so good that it begs mentioning... Verdict? I'll be back,... More
