Good pub food, very nice decoration and good location, walking distance to city or a short tram ride. The mains do not come with big sides so if you are hungry order sides repeatedly. We waited a bit long for the food but maybe because they want to serve all 6 of us at the same time.

All enjoyed our meals, the Butchers Pick steak meal was very good. Desert - cherries - was rushed as we had to leave and I don't think was very good value for $14 We will return pre theatre again

Great place to grab a pre-theater bite. It is nice and quiet and has a good food and wine list.

First time I have ever been to downstairs bistro and I look forward to returning. The staff were exceptional, the atmosphere was so warm and relaxed. Good priced food and wine. We had the Tuesday steak special which was excellent value for money.
