“Excellent local wine”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

The GBD as the locals call is quite cosy and easy to find as it is located next to a beautiful church in the town center on Pollen Street.

“Coffee and wine with great choice of food.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We go here for either a wine or a coffee after work. Movie night is Thursdays...where you have a meal and a movie ticket for a set price.

“good food variety”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Pleasant find with great seafood at this pub. Seafood chowder hit the spot as the sea breeze was cooling the day. Service was slow but staff was friendly.

“Great place to eat and have a drink in Thames”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

This is a favourite for dinner out in Thames, always really good food and good drinks selection. Service can be slow at times, but that seems to be cos they're busy. Staff very friendly. Price pretty reasonable.

“A long wait, not really worth it.”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation, so maybe we hit a bad night. But, the service was pretty hopeless. We only ordered a simple platter of dim sum type food, but it took so long to serve the barman came and offered us free drinks while we were waiting. We weren't the only ones. Some other people resorted to reading novels while waiting! I wish I could say that the food was worth waiting for, but that would hardly be truthful. Oh, dear!
