  • Ventured here as a lunch stopover today. We walked in with a toddler & a baby.. conscious about glances coming our way.... the staff is the absolute soul here... oh and the beer of course! Polite, helpful, warm & friendly! The food was excellent. The beer platter was super. The toddler was tough (lol) but the environment was great and that helped heaps! Highly recommend!
  • Excellent beer! Limited selection in food but, definitely a quality over quantity situation. Standard pub fare, but really delicious. This pub never leaves me wanting in any way.
  • Food was great if not a touch expensive. Great beer selection and some nice wines by the glass as well. Highly recommend the Mutton stew.
  • The beer and atmosphere here are great. We've returned half a dozen times for pints, but every time have been disappointed by the food and service. Don't bother eating here. Come for beer.
  • We went for a beer at the bar. There are lovely stained glass windows. They let us have a taste of a few beers so we could pick. The Chocolate Porter was great. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but it's a standard/good pub.
