    Summary
    Pointy says:
    Doubling a both a cafe and a restaurant, a bit of evening warmth was lacking. Adding to this was an amazingly short ambient song list that overpowered any table conversation. This left the vibe feeling a tad unfriendly, but hey we were there for the food!
    Recommend by SeaGrunter after receiving rave reviews in the local dining journalism, the sad look of disappointment on his face at evening end told the story. The lofty expectations of team uA failed to be reached.
    The Pork Ribs were a bit overcooked, and never really left an impression. The Pulled Pork Slider, though very nice, fell noticeably short of the Meat Maiden experience.
    Two highlights of the evening included the 3 Ravens Pale Ale - already very near the top of my favourite beer list - and watching Agamemnus pack away a ridiculous amount of calories. I salute you Ag, you fat fat disgusting man.

    Ate two wings, pretty bad.
    Chips were good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Ag says:
    I'm not fat.
    Been to this place a few times now. Ribs are normally sensational but on the night they were a let down. Wings looked terrible. Milkshakes were unbelievably good and the Juicy Lucy burger was 8/10. Would normally recommend this place, but on the night it was a let down.

    Ratings
    Pulled Pork Slider: P-7/10, i-6/10, A-DNP
    Mains: P-5/10, i-0.5/10, A-7/10

    Would we recommend: No

    I left a bad rating on urbanspoon. They offered a voucher to try again. I don't think that will be necessary....
