“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

great staff (some canadians) and great food and drink. The burgers are huge, fries are great, not to mention the pizza which is insanely good. Also if they still do trivia nights they're legendary good times. Staff is chill and you'll meet some people from the yha, which always leads to a good time ;) go there now.

“Rudest Service Ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I can not believe anyone likes this venue. The food is overpriced bog standard pub grub and the service is rude.

“Excellent - we go a lot! :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

How can you beat central pizzas that are $8.50 after 5pm everyday. Including the sirloin steak, bacon and prawn pizza (I tried the others, they're nice, but now ordering is easy) we're talking VERY nice pizzas!
They used to be $19!

We've been there for two menus and whilst we prefered the last menu (but we believe it's seasonal) - the prices have dropped making it a lot more affordable. And it shows, the place has a lot more people in it now. Never totally full, so you can always find space - but full enough to know you're in a good place! :)

The staff are very friendly and cater for 2 as easily as they do for 8. So give it a try.

Our other friends also loved the live music events.

For what you get and being in Melbourne - we recommend this to all our friends.

“good value,great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We arrived here early on a Saturday evening having booked the night before and advised
we would be using a voucher bought on scoopon. It was about to expire.
We decided on tapas, calamari, prawns and to drink i had a Margaret River chardonnay and the hubby a cider.
The service was incredible, attentive but not overly so.
I would describe it as a grungy,large warehouse type of pub. Bob Marley being played made it even more enjoyable.
Well done!

“friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

stumbled into this bar after being traumatised by a bar in the same neighbourhood! really nice place. We had the burgers which were excellent. Beer prices very steep ($9) for us brits but we got used to that during our 3 weeks in australia. A really nice guy behind the bar - very welcoming. also fab live music.
