    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.

    Given COVID is still in the community, I thought the seating for 2 was not within 1.5 meters away from the next guest on the table either side of where sat. I would ask to sit somewhere else next time. Otherwise, friendly staff and good value for a Parma!

    We sat outside under the awning. It was a mild night so it was nice to be outside. The service was outstanding. The wait staff were all very attentive. They were experiences - they knew what to ask, and when to ask. Overall a great local pub with good food, relaxing environment and great service.

    Group of ten of us came for a late leisurely lunch on a Sunday. Awesome vibe, friendly service, great wines and good tap beer selection. I had the seafood spaghetti special, which was delicious. Others in the group commented on how much they enjoyed their burgers, parmas and steaks and our veggo mate was happy too. Can’t wait to go back

    The food was ok, overpriced and over-sauced for what we got really. Croquettes were nice. The best part about the beef cheek was the crunchy, perfectly steamed veggies that accompanied it. We actually thought the service was great, until 30 minutes into our booking we were told that our table was needed, when we had a booking for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Then when we got up to leave we were told they made a mistake. Too late, sorry but we shan’t be coming back.

    It is always great here, however, last night the service was quite poor. The service team seemed more interested in cleaning glasses than serving tables and it seemed to take a long time to get anyone to come and take our order (drinks or food). At one point one of our party was at the bar and the staff totally ignored him. In saying that when we did get served the staff were polite and attentive (maybe not enough staff!). The food was excellent as usual, however, it was noisy which is always a bit a of turn off.
