I have tried this pub for much better than pub food and service many times and it keeps coming up trumps!

The lamb dish that I had was delicious with the salad tasty and containing unusual elements that added to the flavor range.

It is not cheap but justifies the cost.

The food has many examples of better than straight culinary fair and yet still has simple traditional pub meals, such as veal parmigiana, done well. The prompt efficient and effective service with generally well trained and courteous young staff continues to impress.

But the best part is the thoughtful and interesting wine list that actually a number of top restaurants do not match.

Overall an excellent location, service and food that continues to deliver.

We have eaten there several times and the food has been absolutely delightful. The wines compliment the food and the waiting team are really nice.

Came here one night as I live nearby and couldn’t be bothered cooking. VERY surprised by this place, in fact it’s turned into my unofficial local. Yeh the local people tend to be a bit up themselves and full of self importance but here they’re pretty good and that’s attitude seems mostly to be left at the door.

Staff are super friendly and helpful, though the manager is a bit wacky. You think he’s being abrupt but that’s just his humor, - we think.

Food is fantastic! The beetroot with goats cheese is awesome. We usually get calamari but the quantities served up are really inconsistent from visit to visit so we’ve stopped ordering that. The steaks are good. Can’t really fault it at all in fact it’s been a nice surprise to find this gem of a restaurant right on my doorstep. Well done.

We dropped in with no booking on a very busy Thursday during our NGV garden tour. To our delight the service was efficient, the staff considerate and the food exceptional. I had the fish of the day, Barramundi, that was cooked to perfection. Even the ravioli bed that held the fish in itself was special. My friend had the Vegetable tasting plate that impressed her. Our desserts were well worth the extra .... that orange sorbet was the best we've ever had. Certainly a wonderful surprise luncheon that was way beyond our expectations.
