Came here as part of a corporate chrimbo party, on the phone they wanted us to come. When there at 3pm on a Tuesday we were playing word games in the food area as it was empty, staff said we'd have to give up some...More

Popped in for a cheeky bevy after having had a few cocktails at nearby Cahoots. Loved that it was an old style English pub. Friendly kiwi bar tender when we were there. And best of all cheap beer on tap and loads of choices! Loved...More
