    Great service, good food, great atmosphere, not a fan of the 10% surcharge on Sundays but i guess that's what locking down over covid for 2 years gets ya

    We booked for a group of 13 and we’re given the two large table out the front which was able to hold at least 16 people so we had plenty of space to spread out

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The venue is large and great for watching sports. Couches, tables, pool table, large central bar and lots of tv's. The food was overpriced and the servings were very small and bland. Overall great pub for a drink and watching sport.

    Ate here with a group of friends whilst staying in Melbourne. It’s a huge venue which got very busy by the time we left but was quiet mid afternoon. Service is friendly and efficient, menu is pub grub and good choice. It is what it says it is. Good place to have a break from shopping or simply let others go round the shops whilst you relax and eat. One disappointment was no real British ales on draught.
