This pub was a less crowded option on Sunday afternoon. We sat at the bar and had lovely fresh salads. The wait staff was great.

After a long flight from the UK, it was great to walk out of the hotel, down the river walk, straight into the Mad Dog pub. Great beers, nice food, but the best is the location. Spent hours here with friends just people watching.
