Pub
Michael Jordan was the greatest of all time. No doubt. But to say we’re going to be the Michael Jordan of pubs? Tough ask.
How about the Larry Bird of pubs? Remember Bird? White guy, no hops, limited athleticism; but three rings, 12 x an all star, 3 x NBA MVP and a member of Dream Team I on the back of good solid fundamentals. And that’s our commitment to you. Simple things done really well. Larry Bird style. Or as the great man put it “first master the fundamentals”.
The fundamentals of a good pub experience – crisp cold beer, served off a meticulously maintained system into a clean glass; a wine range that’s interesting and not intimidating; food that’s hot, looks good and tastes great; a team who works fast and smile at the same time, welcoming you to the venue like they would their home.
That’s our commitment. Hold us to it. If we don’t provide you a Larry Bird experience, let us know. Cheers, Alfie x

    Very disappointed in the food- not up to usual standard. The steak fries were so overcooked they were just crispy no potato inside. I had the chicken burger that was cool inside, soggy bun. It was presented in a plastic basket- smaller portion and looked so unappetising. My husband had the steak, smaller than usual, smaller portion of chips and salad. Staff not the usual friendly staff, not interested in talking to you at all. No cider. We used to be regulars.

    The kitchen had run out of vegetarian schnitzel. It was super easy to order something else as there were lots of vegetarian options on the menu but I was incredibly and pleasantly surprised that the staff provided me with a drink to apologise that my first preference was unavailable!

    Just a pub now. New chef who has changed menu up. Steak night is now a much smaller steak and not cooked as well. This pub used to cater very well for coeliacs, now hardly has a thing on the menu for them. Was a regular here as food was so good. Looking for a new pub now

    I'm a regular here now - the steak, parma and burger nights are well worth it, staff friendly and I like the music they play - its not radio friendly pop, more a cleverly curated mix of indie and old school favs.

    I love coming to the pub for a steak on Wednesday nights. However, the last few times, most of the special steak is more than half grizzle and fat which is hard to eat so I have to leave it on the plate or worse, get a mouthful of grizzle and have to discreetly take it out and pop somewhere on the plate hopefully without anyone seeing me. Chips are great thought. The staff are fantastic though and always are.

    Booked on line for a standard table for 2 Was put on a bar table.. apparently they get glitches in the system was informed… so warning for anyone booking online- never a guaranteed result for the 3 seating options. Manager offered a free entree Food was as usual very good value Asked for the bill, service waiter give the bill, I walked out to the car while wife went to the counter to pay… while that happened the manager come out side and challenged me that I “have to pay”…. Accused of doing a runner Then the service waiter come out to explain my wife was paying Not my first BBQ.. the manager was on a mission watching due to my complaint about the booking and the seating. Disappointed, embarrassing night all round

    We travelled down from Northcote (feels like a different country) to have a Sunday roast, and wow did the chef knock it out of the park. A nice variety of vegetables, beef and yorkshire. Their mulled wine was pretty good, good variety of beers and the staff were cruizing through Sunday. Hardly any kids either which for us is a bonus. We will come again fo-sho.
