We sat outside to do some people watching as it is right on the road side, instead of the dark interior of the pub. Food was ok, a bit slow coming out.

I'm not normally a pub person but this place felt so homey. With timber interior and shiny surfaces everywhere. Staff were really friendly. A very relaxed place. Went there for drinks in the afternoon and enjoyed it so much we went back there for dinner.
