Great beer, great happy hour, friendly staff - needs a clean up / refit a bit dingy and doesn't smell the best. A great range of pale ales and hoppy beers, just need to diversify range a little! Will definitely be back for the beer though!

Been there a few times now for the best value t-bone steaks in Canberra! Seriously good for the price ($24). Plus a nice selection of craft beers on tap and in the bottle.

This english style pub is great family value, the 2 for one main meal offer throughout the week was brilliant. The food quality was excellent, they have a large range of beers and ciders on tap.

Stopped by tonight to check out the $10 schnitzel.

Great price, fast service.

Pretty much standard pup fare however for $10 who is complaining.

Nice english pup feel. I probably would not cross town for the meal but if you are in the area it's a good choice.

Stand on the carpet, your feet will stick to the floor from the hard partying the night before. Food was poor too. Trivia night is popular for losers.
