Sunday roast was average. Not a lot of your plate for $20, and meat was dry. You can get better at a local RSL

Beer selection is one of the best in Sydney, but the food needs A LOT of work! Two of my family members almost couldn’t eat their dinners they were that awful.

Was excited with the new menu but was truly dissatisfied with the food. Used to be really good with great flavor but everything was bland and one dimensional. Nothing stood out except for the spring roll and salt pepper calamari... They stood out because they were drowning in oil on the plate. Used napkins to soak up the oil. Sad...it used to be a great place to dine but not now

Used to have a tap list to die for but on this visit it wasn't great, seasonal changes perhaps? Food was great as always. Gutted we missed out on the Fat Tyre.
