.. this one is probably my pick for a daytime beer - the aspect is shaded enough to be pleasant in the heat, and it often picks up a light breeze. You feel like the entire place is outdoor, but it's a well-crafted illusion brought about by a very open layout with no definite boundary between the verandah and the bar area. Inside picks up later, but where this place has most value for me is as an afternoon drop-in. The barbecue-style food is pricier than you'd find at, say, a Newtown corner pub - reflecting the area and what the market will go for, and the food looks generally pretty good. The downsides? Well, when we visited the staff seemed, well, disinterested, and watch out for the dive-bombing seagulls if you're getting food.

Was once a fine place a while ago but things change and these changes have already been mentioned. And Emily we do now how but with an attitude like that you're probably not worth our time of day.

Emily you must enjoy having guys with bad BO invade your personal space and grope your body without your permission. Strange what gets some people off.

Couldn't agree more with Matt. This place has become overrun with annoying Lebs. Prefer the Shelbourne, although it too seems to be heading down the same path.

We dropped by recently and checked out the BBQ menu - at $9+ it's not cheap, but it IS good, and sitting on the verandah with a light breeze blowing is great (until you get dive-bombed by seagulls, but that's another story)
