Been here a few times on my visits to Wellington. The interior is very cool and it has a great atmosphere. The Pale Ales and Black beers are very good.

I stopped in while exploring as there as a film being shot and a lot of places were closed. They had a good range of beers and friendly staff. Glad I took the time out to have a look at the place.
