Went to a function and was there for the 1st time. Very good food (calamari appetizer and steak main) and service. Went to bar afterwards and ordered an Irish coffee and the bartender said they don't have whipped cream, but would see what he could do.

A favourite with the locals so it must be good. A good variety of beers on tap. Good location, right next to the railway station and crossing.

Dined here last Saturday with 2 couples and found the restaurant noisy with average and over priced food and wine. All our meals were salty with the chip very salty - do they not know how harmful salt is and if we wanted salty meals we could have salted them yourself.

Great atmosphere the night we were there with friends. Friendly, quite busy, and great food. The choice is fairly good, and the service fast and efficient. A fun night with a happy crowd on a warm summers night !!

A nice al fresco bar opens onto Church St. A great place to go for a drink and appys. Take cash as there is a $20 minimum if you pay by credit card.

This is our local and the people who work here are the friendliest most polite crew out there. Great range of beers on tap, especially with a bowl of triple cooked fat chips. Don't hesitate to pop in you will enjoy it

We, decided that based on the look and location of the bar/eatery that it would be the place for a bite to eat without a reservation-Saturday afternoon about 3 pm a relatively quiet time at that point. We entered the building and noticed a large well appointed bar and separate dinning /function rooms and a restaurant with tables already set... More

This is one of our go to pubs in Brighton. Always friendly service even when we show up on steak night without a booking. They have daily specials, our favourite is the burger special. The last time we were here it was lunchtime on a extremely hot Melbourne day and needed some relief in air conditioning. To our surprise the... More
