From the outside this place didn't look like too much, but we'd been recommended the place by a friend. Great beers served here, I had a few hoppy craft ales which accompanied the food well. Friendly and attentive staff and wasn't too busy either. Chur!

We enjoyed drinks upstairs in the open air rooftop bar. Nice area in the sun and sheltered from the wind. Great music and nice place to have a romantic time or hang with friends.

Popped in for some breakfast and very much enjoyed the coffee and food; I could barely finish my plate. If you're in the mood for a feed, definitely order the Whole Hop breakfast. Cruisey atmosphere, excellent music, and prompt, genuinely nice service. Think I may have found my new favorite breakfast spot!

Dropped in for a snack and some craft beer and were not disappointed. The pork belly was delicious and the spiced cauliflower perfect, good brews and lovely pinot noir. Sun shining through the vines on the glass roof made it a perfect afternoon drop in.

I'm not one for making restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor but this place is worth it. This place has the best pork belly I have ever had (Confit Pork Belly, Crushed Kurama, Tamarillo Chutney, Watercress). My dining colleague had the Pan-Fried Market Fish and Linguine - nice selection of seafood. The food quality is very good. Nice ambiance and a great... More

Been here many times due to the craft beer selection. Had never eaten in restaurant but this place rocks food wise. We did a first table and the food was excellent...My son had the Rodeo Burger from the Tapas menu and he said it was the best Burger from a non Burger joint. Really great food and friendly excellent service.... More

We had an excellent Canadian waitress who knew the menu throughly and was good at recommendations. All four of us had different dishes and everyone loved them, all were delivered piping hot too. Nice starters and cheeseboard. I always like the ambience and service here and it is great value
