Slack service. Overpriced wine. Bogan customers. Gambling machine & tv’s. Once a popular meeting spot, now a pig swill. Staff has total contempt for customers. Staff mainly backpackers. Give this place a miss!

They don't make them like this anymore, sadly and I hope the gentrification doesn't take this pub down. It's got pool tables and spot for a band and a seat for its locals. That's all I need.

Good looking grunge bar, really has that grunge feel nailed, but rudely served, not given the beers we ordered, just not good enough
