The mains ain't cheap (most are in the mid-high $30 bracket), but the food is tasty and the beer good too. Very friendly service - nothing is too much trouble.

I will definitely be going back. We did have a favorite but now this is my new favorite. The staff were amazing and the meals awesome. The staff left us alone for a while once we started eating. Not straight away which is annoying. We...More

A very enjoyable dinner. Great range of food options. A little noisy if your looking for a quiet night but it is a pub after all.

This ale house has a very nice atmosphere, excellent beer, attentive staff and good food. The portions are large and it's very reasonably priced.

We had over 30 people for lunch and I was very impressed with the seamless service. Meals didn't come out quickly (but I wouldn't have expected them to!) but everyone got what they ordered with no mix ups. I ordered the panko fish and chips...More
