I was amazed at the style and quality of the food - I had been here years ago when it was a traditional student pub with the usual fare and poor quality at that. Now the food was incredible full of flavour and great quality. Even though it still retains the student character, this is a great venue and well... More

There last Saturday night for a meal before a show at the Seymour Centre. With your theatre ticket you get a free drink after buying a meal so not bad value. Plenty of boutique beers available and the cheapest schooner costs $7 (note no Tooheys etc on tap). Meals were pub standard - place was busy and a bit chaotic... More

Drinks and dinner mid week left us very disappointed. The steak was chewy and pizza well very small, basic and bland for $19. The service staff were blatantly rude and had a condescending attitude. People smoking, eating and rowdy in the garden bar - we won't bother going back.

Had a nice pub lunch here on a Sunday. They just renovated the courtyard. They had a very hipster menu with salads, pizza and pulled pork. Everything reasonably priced however there were not that much waitstaff for a bit of wait to order food or get a drink.

We came here for a quick meal before seeing a show nearby. The chicken schnitzel and chips was really good. The pub is good for a range of ages and people - attracts lots of Uni students too due to being close to Sydney University. Will come back

This is a great place for functions. The atmosphere is good and they have many separate rooms/areas for all functions.We had the terrace area. The food was finger food and very good. Staff were on the ball and pleasant

Called in on a Thursday night and the place was going off. Vibrant and funky. Good pub grub served quickly and at reasonable prices. Good selection of tap beers also. If you like no fuss good value pub meals then definitely worth a visit.

Went for a farewell last weekend. Nice cosy, casual and welcoming venue with a decent selection of drinks (some craft beers) and a lovely private area upstairs with its own bar. Food was good. Only had the nibbles on offer but saw other other guests meals too.

Went with a group of friends for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere was okay but the food was way below average. If it was based on just my food I would give it a negative rating. I ordered chicken parmigiana (because pork wasn't available) and the chicken was dry (I can forgive that for a schnitzel) but there was hardly... More
