A very poor response from the management tonight. The Porter tasted rancid. That can happen, but when I went to return it, rather than listening or asking questions, the managers automatic response, in front of her group of friends, was to say no one else...More

This pub is just out of the city, sitting on the No 3 bus route and near the Botanical Gardens. Cosy in many ways, it has a welcoming feel and less pomp than some bars I could mention. The quirky touches appealed to me, such...More

I was surprised to find that there weren't any vegan options here. In most places, if this is the case a staff member will suggest an alternative or offer to check with the kitchen if something can be changed to be vegan-friendly, but unfortunately this...More

Happen to be staying around the corner so dropped in for a couple of beers. Over 2 afternoons I tried 5 beers and all were very drinkable well balanced craft beers. Nothing too out there like is becoming more common these days just good beer....More

This is my favourite local pub to come to. It’s great to be able to go somewhere, where there isn’t a tv. You can easily have a chat with friends over a drink. Their drinks are tasty and well priced. Good choice of food. Their...More

Came here with my husband. Another recommended pub from the welling Beer Trail. The staff were fabulous. Really knowledgable about their brews and eager for you to try everything. They also offer a tasting board which is a great idea if you’re indecisive like me!...More

Great beer as per usual S&F and hands down better than Speights bar down the road, although absolutely no good if you dont smoke and want to sit outside and enjoy your beer, maybe Speights is better afterall.

Gerry F we appreciate your feedback. As a non smoker I appreciate what you're saying. Some days the courtyard has no smokers about but other days it does. Sadly there is no invisible curtain to segregate. We hope to see you agin soon!

Visited here on the weekend for lunch and a drink - we arrived just before 2pm and only the snack menu was available. I had fish bites which was a filling and generous serving. We weren't so impressed with the pie which was presented without...More
