I am not sure why I like this place so much – perhaps it is because it reminds me of some of my favourite pubs back home in England. It could be that I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon – how they should be spent in my opinion - eating a tasty burger and chips, drinking yummy cider and playing snooker for free, with friends and family.
It was pretty quiet for a Sunday afternoon, maybe to do with the colder weather right now. But I was happy with that as it had a more relaxing atmosphere and we got to take over the comfy area with the sofas. I really love the décor of the place – little touches of wall art, sofas, games on the tables and the two cosy tucked away tables give it a great vibe.
The menu is just a small selection of six gourmet burgers - you can choose from premium grass fed Angus beef or tender chicken breast. The styles are classic Australian, all American, Mexicans, spicy Thai, hot Indian and fiery Italian - each are served with beer battered platter cut chips at $14.95. You can also add a variety of toppings for either $1 or $1.50.
I prefer a smaller menu as usually it means each item is cooked and prepared really well rather than there being too much choice. We had the classic Australian and it was tasty - juicy meat and plenty of filling and chips. It was served on a chopping board, which seems to be the standard nowadays - I don't know why plates suddenly became so unloved.
There is a choice of thirteen fine ales and three ciders if you want an alcoholic drink, with each burger having it's partner in fine ale. They also sell soft drinks. All ales and ciders are $7.50
Open from 10am to 10pm every day - I will certainly be back as I'd love to see the place with a more busy night-time busy vibe.
However I really like the idea of making it a regular Sunday afternoon treat - sitting on the sofas, playing snooker and games, reading a paper or magazine and chilling out with friends - plus great beer and burgers!
