It was my first time experience to have stone grilled meal and I would say it didn't let me down. I loved the sides and the meal. It was a lovely experience for me. I really enjoyed it. Would visit soon.

This is what it is - and I guess it’s an ok version of that. Suburban pub right by the shopping mall - bar, food, big screen, dining area, entertainment, outdoor smoking area at the front, the usual offering for this kind of business. Service...More

A hint of "overseas-class" service is a great first impression and this service would not be out of place on "The Strip" - by this I am referring to the menu pedestal on the footpath and the staff member who welcomes you if you stop...More

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and fabulous service! A busy pub style restaurant but our orders were taken and food served quicker than expected given it was a busy Easter Sunday. Friendly staff and meals were delicious! Highly recommended to families, couples, groups of friends.

The decor and staff make it a great place to visit for an afternoon drink and meet up with a couple of friends. Outside is great, but there are plenty of little spaces to sit and the staff are attentive and friendly

Nothing to moan about, with this place. It gives you all you expect from a pub / restaurant. I was very surprised at how quickly my meal arrived, it was unnaturally quick! The burger was massive and very nice. The fries were standard. The service...More
