    Great atmosphere and drinks. The pub trivia was different, but fun. But unfortunately the burgers were quite bad in terms of both appearance and taste. The bread was not particularly fresh either.

    Cool place. A lot of options for drinks. However, the food is a little limiting. More healthier options would be awesome. Otherwise a fun place to hang.

    Great post footy place to have a drink and a good pub feed. We had steak, fish and chips and parmy. All food was well prepared, though the salad was more of mixed leaves than salad! The main event on the plates were very much enjoyed and good value for money. Drinks are reasonably priced and the bar staff were friendly.

    Me and my friends has a great fun in the Trivia night last night. Killing lots of brain cells for the answer but we had great laugh. Thanks Forresters crew and Quiz Meisters for a wonderful night we had. :) Will definitely do it again.

    Had a bad first impression when we arrived. Said to staff we were have a booking when we arrived, expecting to be taken to a table it we were told to go find our table marked with paper. So we tried and couldn't find it anywhere. Staff didn't seem to care and just said to find another table which wasn't easy when all the rest were booked. Some other diners said they saw some guys rip up the booking paper on a table nearby which may have been ours. Once we found a table, our schnitzels and drinks were good. We were just a bit disappointed with the staff when we took the time to make a booking, and it wasn't even a super busy time.

    The food was decent pub food, but the place was not warm (most customers had their coats on), the bar staff were blocking the water cooler, and there was a loud trivia night contest on. Good for cheap food and trivia, maybe. Not much else.

    We went here for the $15 Wednesday all you can eat wings. They were delicious, but unfortunately was sold out halfway through the night. I would recommend coming here on Wednesday, but come before 8pm.

    The place is quite run down, the food is average and the service is mediocre. I would not go back.
