We lived the atmosphere but the bun on our burger was stale and the fish and chips was a bit bland. Beer was good.

I thought the staff were super attentive and as soon as oyu noticed the drink low, they would appear at your side. The Cav Tav platter needs reviewing, there were some random things on there and a whole lot of pickled vegetables with not much to go with them. There was also a long wait for food and at lunchtime waiting 40 minutes, barely gives you time to eat for those that were returning to work.

Service friendly and efficient. Great selection of Beers and Wine big tick for me. I thought the food was a bit average to be fair! I had the Hawker Roll and it really lacked flavour. Struggled to taste the Lemon grass and Ginger marinade that it suggested in the menu. Should have got the fried Chicken burger!!!

The food and service was excellent. Parking is on the street only; leave a little early to get a good one if you have a booking.

Appreciated the staff checking with me on timing of food. We ended up needing less than I originally thought and was glad not to over purchase.

We were disappointed in the meals. The noise, accentuatd by the loud music, made table conversation extremely difficult.
