Lovely to eat in a quietish atmosphere but was a Sunday Evening.Had a good choice of gluten free meals and the Sunday roast was made GF for me. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Good place for a reasonable pub meal.

Different and quirky with lots of beers on tap. The service was good and there was a wide choice of dishes on the menu, more than most pub/restaurants. We had no complaints about the food although nothing was outstanding.

This place always delivers and gets better every time. Went on a Sunday and was so popular with people having a good time. Great place for the community to catch up.

Almost everything about this place felt underwhelming. We were greeted as we were seated with an impressive beer list. Everything went down-hill from there. We waited an eternity for someone to then actually come and take our drinks order even though 3 staff were standing around idly chatting. Over the night we were served by 4 different people. Our designated waitress was pleasant but didn't seem to be well trained. The meals when they came out were very underwhelming. Cheap chilli sauce on a fish meal that dominated the taste. Bland steak. Fish and chips were fine. The sundae for dessert was utterly uninspiring, devoid of any attempt to make it look (or taste) appealing. Even the urinals in the toilet are some horrible cheap plastic device.

So highlight was the selection of beer, everything else was extremely mediocre.

This establishment is a brewery/pub/family restaurant. The décor is themed around the restaurant's name and quite quirky. Well spaced out inside and you don't feel 'over crowded'. Plenty of room. Fully licensed with a good range of craft beers, wines and other drinks. Very good service. Menu explained very well. We asked if our entrée bread to be without garlic - that was no problem. Generous servings and excellent presentation. Food is great with specials like 'Roast of the day' and each day has some attractive offer. We went on a Sunday and it was 'free meals for kids'. There were a number of kids there so the special deal has its attraction! An enjoyable meal and we will be back!
