    Brilliant location for a delicious meal and beautiful wine. Our table had a lovely night. Recommend the Seafood Spaghetti with Chilli with a bottle of the Polizino Chianti Sangiovese 2018 they serve.

    Wednesday night is Parma night and the pub was busy but had a really nice feel to it. We were directed to our table as soon as we arrived. Staff are friendly and the meals came out quickly even though they were busy. Great pub for families, couples and young people. Very welcoming :)

    Good greeting on arrival from security. asked if we had a booking then showed us to the bar for a pre drink. Pub was very busy post AFL bar was very blokey but good crowd. Bar staff efficient and polite and informed us what table we were in in the dining room. When seating in the dining room female staff member was pleasant but just sat us and left no introduction to the venue, menu etc. (we have been before). Noise carry over from bar into the dining room was offensive, especially the language. You families near us not a good scenario Ordered eye fillet medium rare, cooked medium rare but with inedible pepper sauce, I like hot food but this was soo spicy I couldn’t eat it. My wife ordered scotch fillets medium rare, overcooked to medium with same inedible sauce. We are not fans of fries, especially as they were just like MacDonald’s and cold by the time they reached the table On completion of meal I commented to the waitress about the sauce she shrugged her shoulders and said ok!! Overall a disappointing experience and we won’t be back Such a shame as there are too few good pub offerings in the area Final point was booking in line restricted the time we could dine but on arriving the dining room was empty and stayed that way until we left

    Great venue and food was amazing! Waited quite a long time for our orders to be taken. Our entree never arrived. It was extremely loud which was a huge turn off. Interior was amazing and the food was incredible!

    First time visitor and was very impressed. The food quality was high and very tasty. The staff were professional and friendly and engaging, exactly what you want in hospitality staff in my opinion. Good selection of wine and beers on tap that were different that you often see.

    staff were attentive and friendly but our table ordered chicken parmas and all of ours were super overdone and literally like eating rubber, also couldnt really have a conversation as it was extremely loud in the bar area. Additionally, the bathroom facilities were very off putting to the point where I couldnt bring myself to go in there. on a positive note, its a really nice venue with a nice menu. unfortunately it is let down by not separating the bar from the dining room. id recommend not going on a saturday night if your planning on having a meal or a conversation.

    Table Service, food and seating were outstanding, the only fault was the noise level due to the crowd there from Races at Flemington. Good vibe though if you like that! Too noisy to talk so we left early.

    I sat at the bar for an old fashioned counter lunch, the chicken parmigiana was as good as I’ve eaten anywhere, I washed my lunch down with a couple of on tap ice cold pints of Stone & Wood.

    Well we felt like VIP guests when arrived there was nobody then another table of people came and the service was amazing very prompt and friendly. Food was very yummy we ordered the flat bread and hummus, fried cauliflower and eggplant schnitzels and everything was delicious. This pub has been refurbished during Covid and they’ve done an amazing job so definitely worthwhile going to check it out.
