Had the most awesome Hog Burger! Love this place and can't enough of it. The place was busy but the service was quick and I always get looked after well. Big fan of the local beer on tap too. Can't wait to go back.

The ‘Gun is good fun, staff always seem friendly and nice beer selection at the bar. Can be a little dead in the weekday evenings. Generally this place serves good food although on our last visit the food wasn’t that great, chef’s night off?
