Great!
Decent priced, clean, friendly and very entertaining.
Steve, the sheriff, is a very nice guy, and takes care of his customers.
Try it! You cant miss :-)

“A Great Little Watering Hole”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Favoured by the ex pat community and local bike riders this is one cool place to stop for some beers. The owner is frquently seen slaving over a BBQ to feed the guests, like a true bue Aussie. The have regular live bands on Thursday nights and there is always rugby on the TV, especially the important must see games. Had a great couple of nights there.

“Cheeky Monkey- A Fun Little Place”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

i have stopped in to Cheeky Monkey many times since it opened, and almost always
have a very good time there (& the few times i haven't aren't worth mentioning,
and/or weren't the bar or staff's fault))
although the location on the main road is neither scenic
nor imbued w/atmosphere (either natural or man-made),
there is something about the owner & his staff that make you want to be at ease;
also there is usually a major sporting event on the tube, and sporadic theme nights, ,
even occasional live music
also surprisingly tasty baguette sandwiches are usually available for purchase...
although not the most popular or beautifully decorated bar on the island,
it is worth spending a few hours at, just for the general friendliness &
reasonable prices if nothing else ...
at 1st glance, this place might seem average at best (or less), i can not
honestly rate it any worse than "very good"

“Chilled and relaxed at the Cheeky”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Nice to see new cool bar open all year on the main road. A few friends and I have watched quite a few live sports at this friendly little bar . Live music some nights and the cocktails seem to be popular to passers by dropping in after a meal at any nearby restaurant.
