I've been to the deck bar a few times now for food and drinks. Always great offers on. Food is consistently good. Staff are friendly and its in a good location! Try the chilli fries 👌🏼

Wouldn't recommend for a feed. You can get some extra crispy schnitzel, or 20 types of salad and that's about it on the menu. Nothing exciting. Majority of seating outside, so not great during a wet season storm.

We had our Christmas work lunch here and the food is good pub food. The variety seems good with a mixture of pub staples and asian choice. I had the steak sandwich and chips, which was good.

Visited here for a short night out last Saturday along with a few friends. Overall environment is nice with plenty of seating indoor and out, small dance floor, cheap drinks (pint of pure blonde $8.50 so is cheaper than most other establishments) and quick service. Didnt sit down and eat but as a nightlife establishment I rate this place highly... More

Enjoyed a lovely 'healthy brekkie' of the menu (recommend to go for scrambled egg) and the muesli with coconut yoghurt and lots of fruits. The place wasnt busy at all -GREAT so we didnt have to wait- and the service was friendly. We will be defn going back !

Been here a few times and can't fault the food at all but the service behind the bar is really lacking. Seems to be no hurry to serve people who are left standing in a queue.

This was a short walk from our accommodation so it became the local while we stayed in town. While we didn't eat here, we did enjoy time on the deck watching passers by and having a cold drink.

Had a great taco plate here with haloumi & avacado and a huge stack of chips. Try the 421 beer, locally made & really good. Went back another day and had one of the quinoa salads which was also fantastic. My friends both days had the chicken tacos and loved them. There's a little park across the rd and it's... More
