As a university student this place is great to come and watch the rugby and have a drink with a few mates. We quite often come down on a Friday or Saturday night to watch a game. We don;t normally eat here so I don't really know what the menu is like however I have had the chips on a number of occasions and they are always nice. The staff are friendly and like to see everyone enjoying themselves and having a good time.
Excellent family pub, especially in summer! The kids (and the big kids) can swim in the pool and parents
can keep and eye on their kids while having a drink - The bar plays sports, theirs also a toddler playground to keep the wee ones happy. Great range of beers/wines, friendly staff and the food is decent. What more could you ask for really?
Awesome bar, I have been here many times for different occasions from 21st's, formal dinners, and just a quiet drink. Backyard Bar is the perfect place for all different occasions. It is really nicely presented and the restaurant and bar menu's are both rich in choice. The outside area at the back is great and there is even a pool! Have always had great service here and the pizzas are fantastic!
Being close in proximity to the universities, it's a bit of a student watering hole. Which can be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you look for in a bar. Had the seafood platter. Good for a hang-out with friends in the sun. Love the fact I could have swam in the pool if I had brought togs. Next time maybe.
This place usally packs out with a younger crowd on weekend evenings, however this is an awesome place for a chilled out Sunday afternoon beverage especially in the Summer, sometimes they have a live artist dong an acoustic set or just a dj spinning some tunes. There is also access to the Ponamo Hotel pool to take a dip in so not just your average bar! The staff I have found to be a little rude at times.
