Went here with my wife for an evening out. Beers very cold and my wife was happy about them having tap beer! Ordered a couple of dishes(sizzling gambas) was one and very good.

We came here later on in the evening to get out of the club type atmosphere of the bars down the street. It had a great crowd with good vibes. Not too busy. Beers were a good price and pool was fun. I went back for more.

One of their stuff was even being rude to one of the other guests at this evening - without an obvious reason.

How can you get a bar so wrong. So many staff, so little service. Do not order any food here, it seems to be cooked next door (all deep fried rubbish - scallops couldn't be found beneath the cheese?!). Go elsewhere.

average bar, with below average live music, there is a pool table which you pay 35c for a game. The cocktails are not correctly made.The central location is a plus.
