“Just popped in”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We went there unexpectedly, and were able to have a quick bite to eat, a bet at the TAB and then sit outside downstairs and listen to some very bad karaoke. Great night!

“Typical Pub”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

It is a typical Aussie pub with pub grub. Top floor is a betting shop with beer. Food took around 40 minutes to be ready as we arrived at a 'busy time'. No table service - food ordered and collected at the food bar.
We did enjoy the quiz night though.

“Terrible deep fried rubbish”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

What a waste - with a view like that you'd think they put more effort in to their menu. You can tell a chef is not behind this menu and on the pans in the kitchen as a monkey could could better and make more variety. My husband ordered the chicken burger and it was pre-boiled chicken?!?!?!!?! Why they couldnt stick a fresh chicken breast on the grill on beyond me.

They also had horrendous music playing, it was like heavy metal and when l complained that it was not really damily friendly music was told that it was pre-done and couldnt be changed?!?!

No atmosphere to speak of and terrible all round - def will never go back unless they decide to hire a chef who is not just a grease monkey.
