We came here for an extended family lunch. The service was great! I had the two piece fish and chips and added dressing and gravy. I’m a big eater, but I left some behind it was a lot of food!
Travelling with an infant, it can be tricky finding a good spot to change him. This place has a change table in the accessible washroom which is super helpful.

Set in the old Dominion Bank, this tavern retains a banking feel with high ceilings and interesting decor. The service was excellent. I went in a large group and they handled us with ease. The meals are not your usual "pub-grub". I had Norcina Rigatoni with a truffle cream sauce and Italian sausage. Perfection. Of course it was washed down with an Iceburg beer!

As followers of food shows, we relished the idea of sitting at the Oyster Bar and being able to watch behind the scenes for our 37th anniversary dinner. It was like dinner and a show! The food was superb, the staff friendly and outgoing, everything to make an evening special.
