We enjoyed an evening at the pub, sitting outside. The atmosphere was good, but the service was poor. Also unlike the other places in the Waterfront, this does not really have a view.

Nice beer and a good calamari and chips and fish and chips. Beer very drinkable for a lager. Nice to sit outside with few smokers and very unrushed atmosphere with good service. If pub grub was this good in the UK, I'd be very happy.

Popped in for a quick beer on a tour of the Waterfront. Own brew pale ale was a bit yeasty and cloudy for me. Local lager a bit bland. Quenched the thirst, but nothing remarkable. Nice atmosphere.

This place is amazing! Located in a very old building, they serve a wide range of meals, from seafood to pizzas and steaks. They have Mitchell's craft beer on tap. Try the "Old Wobbly" or the "Milk and Honey" - it is delicious!
