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
