Killed a couple of hours here with interstate friends awaiting flights. Expensive but interesting, varied drinks list, great hot chips, and live background music. Great looking place with atmosphere and helpful staff. Nice experience. Might be back for the Sunday roast.

Our menu is ever changing reflecting the wonderful seasonal produce Tasmania and our kitchen garden has to offer. We craft our menu depending on the season and what our local producers and suppliers have on hand. Our food is honest fresh and British Pub style, hearty and warming in Winter and light and fresh in the Summer months.
