    Live music and the atmosphere was great!

    Surprised the rating is so low - perhaps when packed it's a different experience... but multiple food options have been solid & the beer is great. Lots of different areas as well, for different vibes.

    Food and beer were more than good worth to visit.

    Great place to do some work and knock back a few beers. Gets a bit louder after 5 though. But then you can just stop working and start drinking more :)

    Loud and obnoxious. Rude patrons. Overpriced, sub-par food in tiny portions. I love James Squire ales, but seriously, never again.

    Pale Ale, Porter

    Sun Down smell snd taste of toilet water (or what I imagine toilet water would taste like). The halfblood is very good and most of the other beers are also worth a go. 15 $ tasting paddle.

    This place used to be a strip club. There's a stripper pole and "massage room" upstairs.

    The Chaser came recommended. Not a bad drop for a summer's evening. Cheers!

    Rump steak is average for the price. Potatoes were luke warm. However the Portland Grazing Plate was a great starter. Good size parmagana aswell. Beers were awesome obviously.

    Not worth anyone's time. Service horrendous. Staff unprepared. Food burned and cold. Unenjoyable experience.

    Rude staff. Especially the brunette with the tat on her lower arm. Also noisy. Good selection of beers though.

    @geoff S. The restriction is a local council by-law. We have no control over it. We would have them out there all night if we could. Thanks for the feedback

    Can't sit and drink on their own outside tables after 10.30 or some such. Sort it out.
