I highly recommend the following. I had a wonderful big southern chicken and bacon meal with a pint of beer for $20.01 this was just perfect.

Guessing you came on a Tuesday and had our Burger + Brew deal $20, glad to hear you enjoyed it.

Great bar to watch a big event like the boxing, I would probably book a table instead of just rocking up as there were a lot of people that didn't have seats. Bar staff were friendly and accommodating.

Good to hear you came into watch the big fight, you are right if possible it is a good idea to book ahead of time.

The staff are very attentive and seem keen to please. Follow up service left a little to be desired. We asked for the menu to order desert, got the menu BUT no one came to ask if we had decided what we were having.

Most of the staff is really friendly, the other ones can't be bothered by any guests. Had the steak as the main dish which was allright, dessert was amazingly good though! Would come back for a dessert here!

This is a great place for people watching, with tables near the open windows and street. Great atmosphere, good size portions of calamari which was yum, pig curl fries Mmmm, and wedges. But please start stocking Corona!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us. Corona is a great beer but have you tried Sol which is what we offer instead?
