Worse pub in Darwin. Service very poor. Staffs attitude alarmingly arrogant and lacking. Beer expensive and flat or possibly poor beer line or glass hygiene. Do not waste your time and valuable money. Won’t be back.

Had low expectations when heading here but was pleasantly surprised when I got there. They have a very good range of drinks, lots of variations of different spirits, got to try things that I have never heard of. The service was good and the staff...were friendly especially Laura she made our night with her reviews of different drinks and laughter. Would happily head back again for another round of drinks.More

Stood in line and once the line died down standing still waiting at the bar while others came up behind us to be served. I asked Jackson hey did you know we’re actually waiting to order drinks and he responds oh there’s just people coming...at me from everywhere we’re doing our best 🤨🧐 will say though beer was cold & great atmosphere.More

Great setting and great temps late Sept 2021. Beer more expensive than expected but looked forward to the calamari dish which is a favourite. Very disappointed with cold chewy calamari to accompany the wedges - which fortunately were hot. Kitchen needs to lift game to...coordinate dishes and its standard.More

Cool place to go for a beer or cocktails. Cool spot for sport. We had some nibbles which were semi average but the lamb was 90% fat hardly any meat however we mentioned it to the staff who kindly removed it from our bill.
