A vibrant and fun pub with a touch of class. The staff are well presented, polite and helpful while being well across the menu. Great range of drinks and a delicious menu with offerings for every mood and appetite. An awesome place to catch up with friends on weekends or a quiet get together midweek!

A new find in an old location.
This is a space and a place; style, with a relaxed atmosphere, where the menus offers classics with a twist; fabulous steaks, pizza, duck, and a variety of other taste teasers to delight the most jaded party poopers.
Prices more than reasonable given the quality and variety of dishes on offer, and the wine list - even by the glass - offers local, national and imported treats. Although, the $800.00 ‘Grange’ is a bit of a stretch.

Beautiful setting, awesome staff and incredible food. Whether it’s for lunch in the sun sitting outside, or for a nice dinner inside at night, it’s totally worth it.
