    I'd get the chips and the champers. Everything else looks ghastly.

    Cool place but I dunno if it was because the place was busy or it was a Friday night but I've never had such a terrible parma. Not recommended.

    Food quality is average, service is quite poor. The only good thing is selection of beer on tap. But place is not cheap. Quite alright for couple of drinks i think.

    No security at all on a Friday lead to bogans fighting out the front. Staff didn't clear tables or replace cutlery before bringing mains. Food was bland, eg salad was lettuce and tomato, no dressing.

    The dips (well at least today) are not recommended as they come with basic sliced white 'supermarket' style loaf. Wedges are always good although today the sour cream seemed watered down.

    Bread with dips was terrible. Do not order. Selection of nice beers is great.

    If you haven't been here in a while, check it out! All redone inside and out. Looks super classy!
