Ordered two of the “barramundi”. Both plates came out with 2 slimy long fillets which were certainly not Barramundi! The “fish” looked like basa, the type you find frozen at supermarket always on special. Very disappointed.

The kitchen and staff dealt really well with our large-dish group of 18 - managing to serve all of our meals within minutes. Even though this place can cater for quite a crowd overall, the space has been arranged thoughtfully to create relatively private spaces....More

We've dined here a few times, but last night the crew went that extra mile to look after our late evening 80th birthday dinner. Thanks to the Benjamin for a lovely meal (as usual) served by friendly, efficient staff. We'll be back!

Pizza delivered burnt (almost black) after reminding the staff that a meal was missing rom the table. A replacement pizza arrived, overcooked, all up over an hour after ordering. Large roach on the wall, a couple of flies around the table.

Description
this pub has had a major overhaul and it is the funkyist place now and very popular with the city types and everyone else. Lots of old lampshades, cut glass hanging from the ceiling, beer garden with 3 great booths including huge retro lights hanging in each, great food, excellent staff and good wine list too. It ticks all my boxes. They seem like a happy bunch of staff which always makes it a better experience for the likes of me
