Went for quick lunch on a Sunday. Prices are very good, quality far ahead and the portions massive. Had the platter worth chilli poppers, seriously strong. Local craft beers at special prices. Rustic setting, enjoyable experience.

Sticky Fingers in Observatory does good ribs with tasty extras like jalapeno poppers, chips and onion rings. It’s quick, well-priced and they have regular specials to look after your wallet. Worth trying.
