We stopped in for a small meal. Busy bistro but the food was great! Staff were very friendly. Highly recommend if you are staying in the area. The cheese platter was fantastic and the Porterhouse steak was exceptional.

This unassuming little pub was amazing! The atmosphere was great! The staff were wonderful! The food was 5 star! We went back for a second meal! Just a short walk from the main hub of Battery Point. Thoroughly recommend this little Old Pub!
