We regularly attend this venue, there is a special deal on every day for food, trivia and raffles. Really friendly environment and friendly staff. Awesome watching the train spin around too!

At $15.00 for a T-Bone Monday night special, you can't go wrong. The staff are young, bright and friendly. We're regulars, it's a really good local. Recommended.

Had the rump steak, it was a good cut and cooked to perfection. However that is where it dropped back in value. Firstly my friend had to go back and ask for mash potato, which was advertised to automatically come with the meals we ordered. Then when we were served I it appeared to be the instant product (like 'deb').... More

Perfectly done "pub food" that's not too expensive for the area and full of locals. We ordered the parmigiana which was delicious and steak with mash. Family friendly too!

If you are looking for a local pub in this area this is the place for you, don't expect much and you will enjoy. If you want the pub with a view or tourists go to Bondi out Watson's Bay you could say this pub is for the locals and families. Kid friendly atmosphere model trains above to watch going... More

There is a good filling meal to be had at this establishment and there is a great train which travels around the room to keep the little ones entertained.

A small 2-3 star hotel popular with locals and offers a TAB facility. Attracts those who like a pub environment. Food is acceptable but not great in any way, fair would be a good term. Has a few rooms where people can stay. Overall very limited but in a good location.

This is a nice local option if one wants to take a quick walk and grab a drink. It is also extremely popular with local punters as it has a TAB and one can spend some time trying their had at slots, the Lotto or horse racing. You tend to get some pretty passionate regulars, as with any other local... More

Nice local pub in Rose Bay. Had a bottle shop attached to it as well as a decent restaurant for food most nights. They also have trivia nights some Mondays.
