2nd visit for a couple of drinks at this pub. Lovely outlook with grassed area if you have kids that want a run around. Out of the hustle and bustle of inner Byron.

Didn't really warm to the place. Some nice beers, and outdoor area, but really nothing all that special.

Had dinner here a couple of times and the service was excellent. Meals are very reasonable and there's plenty on the plate. There's a fenced off children's area too which is great for the kids.
