On the door it clearly said open until 1am but when my husband and I walked in the lady went to serve my husband then a male behind the bar called out oh nah we just closed up. It was only 8:40pm. We had just finished eating dinner so we hadn't even been drinking. Bloody rude if you ask me.

This place was my go to bar to go hang out after work. Whether it was winter or summer, it was a great place to hang out. The food was great and so were the drinks. The staff were wonderful and so were all the patrons. Give it a go!!

Took the family of four to this place since they wanted a burger style place. Busy so please book at least during weekends and in the summer months. We all enjoyed the food and the service.

Popped in there to enquire about watching a rugby game later that day. The barman grunted that he may not be open if there were not enough people in there before slopping the drinks we had ordered down in front of us. I was not impressed.

Read other reviews so sought this bar out. Thought very tacky - perhaps it was end of season but only stayed for one drink and moved on.

Thank Larry M
