Don't expect anything too posh, that’s not how we roll. We’re into good times and great food. Like a bull in a china shop, our passion for classic dining and fine drinks is out of control. Like our name suggests, everything we do is a little bit tipsy. From our food to our drinks, you can trust that we’ll have you saying ‘holy cow!’ Whether you’re after a quick bite or a long night, we’ll serve you up our twists on the classics and a curveball or two. Our share plates are a circus of flavours. Each performs a more amazing trick than the last. And like the best pop groups of the ‘90s, it’s hit after hit. Whether you want just a little or a beast of a feast we’ve got your covered. Let our cocktails wash over you and the good times roll in. Or sip into something more comfortable from our wine list.
