Wait staff were good, must be a great place to work in with the layout and atmosphere. We weren't sure what we wanted to eat, the young lady attending suggested the orange roughy (fish), prawns and baked vegetables - she was right on the meal was great.

What can I say – was just overwhelmed at the meal served being way beyond my expectations for ‘pub grub’. There is a 500g steak and all the trimmings on the menu citing if you manage to eat it all you can have a free dessert. Just reading what you get on the menu I knew I would struggle – maybe another day so opted for less. Beautifully cooked steak being just half the size of the ‘challenge meal’. Slim pickings for craft beers with one out of stock so tried the other one available being a Wasp Pilsner. That was enjoyable and hope there stocks are back to normal next visit to sample the other style of beer. After meal coffee was ok, went for an extra shot which was a dollar more making it pricy in this neck of the woods. Overall it’s a lovely Pub with great character and attentive staff on hand. They do charge-backs to the Quest Apartments which is a bonus.
