The food was fantastic. I had an entree of calamari as a main - it was really good. I had a side of vegies, which was huge and had the most wonderful sauce. I would like the recipie. My husband had steak and he said it was really tender and cooked just like he asked for. Pub atmosphere but worth going for the food.
Wing Wednesday $15 for 1kg if the tastiest wings. Only complaint maybe a dipping sauce or two. Like a blue cheese and a sweet chilli
Enjoyed the food, enough choice but not being over the top. Also enough choices of beverage. The atmosphere is always friendly, has a good vibe.
Music was great. Food good and generous portions. We enjoyed the meal, the bubbly and especially the performer- my kind of music: wonderful guitar picking and recognizable songs.
Service is fast and the food is always excellent. Make sure you are hungry because the serving sizes are large. Have dinner and stay on to watch a band for a good night out but make sure you book as it gets busy on the week end.
My friends and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in the outdoor area. We hadn't eaten there before and it was a very comfortable spot to be. The food was hot, tasty and presented well. We will definitely be returning for lunch again soon.
The food was absolutely delicious and worth every penny.the atmosphere was lovely and staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. I cant wait to try more of their lovely meals.
