OVER a year AGO

Great location and lovely old building, however some of the food well was below average. The medium-rare steak was cooked well-done and incredibly chewy. The seafood platter was completely inedible apart from the 2 prawns which were nice and the chips were ok. The tiny scallops were clearly just heated straight from a frozen packet and overcooked. The battered fish was slimy and tasted off. My friend ordered some rice balls and they were yummy, so that is good, but it is not worth attempting to eat the fish. If your not ordering Guinness, the drinks are expensive, but an overall warm atmosphere inside and smoking area out the front. The waitress girls were nice, but they got yelled at by the lady who runs the show, which wasn't very good."

If you love chicken schnitty this is the place to go for your fix ! Just a good solid pub and food always comes out quick.

Definitely Irish feel here - I walked in and got instantly transported to a pub in Ireland! The decor is unmistakable. Large barrels serve as tables with various dining table settings. The street terrace is also the perfect hangout to watch street traffic roll by or a smoko. The various drinks available in the central bar included the ubiquitous Kilkenny and Guinness - try a pint or schooner. Prices are reasonable. Other Australian offerings are also available for those homesick pub goers. We were here for our Melbourne Cup drinks and it undoubtedly has the atmosphere with at least 5 TVs on the races. It was a good visit.

Great lunch pub! Delicous and well priced chicken schnitzel and steaks.

I'm no pub fan, but this place is pretty decent. Its packed on a Friday - Sunday, the drinks are cheap and the decor creates a warm feeling. The food is good and cheap.
