This unpretentious restaurant and bar is a great find. The food delicious, drinks perfect and the staff really make an effort to please. Restored my waning faith in Australian restaurants. Do yourself a favour and try this gem.

It would be best to contact the restaurant directly and ask about their policy on bringing a dog.
