Three of us enjoyed a lovely meal here on Saturday night, despite one being a "fussy" eater"! We found the menu to be a welcome change from the many Canberra restaurants that frequently seem to offer very similar fare. Pretty sure we will be back.

Went here with my sister and her newlywed wife (yaaaa SMS in Oz) on a flying visit to Canberra for work. Loved the whole idea of the deconstructed gin and tonic. The staff were very engaging and informative. I tried a lemongrass gin and then...More

Really enjoyed the small plate of deep fried gruyere cheese. Roasted pepper salad was delicious and snapper had a lovely Asian flavour to it with the coconut and lemon grass. Best of all were the deconstructed gins attentively explained to us by exceptionally pleasant staff...More

Mike did an excellent job guiding us through the gins and recommended each of us a gin that we thoroughly enjoyed. It is absolutely worth your while to order the GnT deconstructed-they bring the gin, tonic, ice and botanicals to you so you get to...More

It was the top ranking pup among Canberra pubs where I’ve visited. Though some places in Braddon were so crowed but here was good for talking each other. The gin was amazing especially with the peddle board and the service was very good too. The...More

Don't expect anything too posh, that’s not how we roll. We’re into good times and great food. Like a bull in a china shop, our passion for classic dining and fine drinks is out of control. Like our name suggests, everything we do is a little bit tipsy. From our food to our drinks, you can trust that we’ll have you saying ‘holy cow!’ Whether you’re after a quick bite or a long night, we’ll serve you up our twists on the classics and a curveball or two. Our share plates are a circus of flavours. Each performs a more amazing trick than the last. And like the best pop groups of the ‘90s, it’s hit after hit. Whether you want just a little or a beast of a feast we’ve got your covered. Let our cocktails wash over you and the good times roll in. Or sip into something more comfortable from our wine list.
