This pub is now closed down as they couldn't behave themselves, loud music that disturbed the whole area. Drunk people everywhere. You don't go there to eat, I was there once and food is not their forte.

News cafe offers a great variety of cocktails and beers. The vibe is always lively and funky. Friday nights get very busy and attracts a younger crowd.

I have been treated with no respect or dignity. While watching a football game a manager, Stanley, spoke to my group rudely. He stole the chill. He followed us shouting insults. I tried to reason with him by reminding him his actions are unwarranted. He said 'I will treat you as a customer, if you had self respect' I have... More

Cool vibe and Yummy cocktails! Have been here a few times as it is close to my place and convenient whilst using Uber. Good Size dance floor and outside seating area to chill with friends.

I have been to News Cafe previously so I don't know why I decided to risk it again. The food wasn't too bad but the experience was bad. Slow and disinterested waiter. At one stage thought he had gone home - I was waiting to order another coffee. Its a pity that these News Cafe's have gone down as they... More

This cafe is bustling with life with wide range of drinks and food. Cosy place to hang out with friend and family. But once it's inching near 10pm, you will beg to be served anything. By 10pm, you must quit. Don't ideal for night crawlers.

When I arrived and seated myself, a friendly waiter took my beverage order. He was never to be seen again! After approximately 15 minutes, I was about to get up and call a waiter when a waitress came to my table and asked if I had ordered an Amstel, which was what I had ordered. It arrived after another 4... More

Caters more to the younger set I'd say but the food is good and great atmosphere. Good variety of food to choose from and normally good parking close by. I haven't had a bad meal or bad service at these chain of Restaurants.
