Went for after work drinks & ended up staying for dinner & later! Copious bar snacks, raffle & draw & delish wood fired pizzas! A little more extensive wine list would be good, but hey, it’s Hay!!

Huge home style cooked meals were very tasty and satisfying. Great selection to choose from and very wholesome. Our party complemented the staff when leaving.

Had dinner here, a chicken schnitzel, it was burnt and the portion tiny. Didn't go in expecting too much. The girl behind the counter was friendly enough but the food was pretty bad. I wish i had more positive feedback.
