Nice outdoor area for dining in the sun. Good pub food but nothing special and expensive for what is was. Staff pretty over it. If you want a few beers and a feed- ok. Better places/ pubs to go to in nelson.

Dined there in June 2015 to celebrate a birthday. Food excellent and tasty, however steaks quite expensive and with few accompaniments. Steaks on the occasion of our visit were not cooked as requested. Those wanting a more filling meal have plenty of other great choices....More

Excellent food. Very reasonable prices. Large range of choices. Friendly staff, speedy service, and tasty food. Despite being right by the traffic lights, it isn't noisy - and we were sitting outside!! Nice vibe, good music, and we'll recommend to others!
