Iím always a bit wary of themed bars, especially those that tout themselves to be legends above the door. What strikes your eye is the rustic looking timber everywhere, which does look pretty good. Then thereís an old dead tree and a whacking great waterfall in the centre of the place that when you least expect it booms out with a thunderous West Coast forest storm. Itís a little tacky but is certainly remarkable. Despite the early hour there was a good air about the place that suggested a convivial atmosphere.
This bar is a good platform for the West Coast Brewery range and the staff were extremely friendly, attentive and keen ambassadors for the range. Prices werenít too bad ($11.50 for a tasting tray of five 150ml beers). On the whole, a pleasant surprise

This is a fairly large bar cum restaurant, with four of their own beers on tap. The pale ale was nice enough, the lager not bad, and the othets were missable. The young lady serving me didnít know they did tasters, but she brought me a small glass of each beer anyway. When she found out that tasters were indeed available, she told me, but comped the drinks anyway, a nice touch. I didnít actually notice the waterfall until I was on my way out, but Iím glad I did - it was the best waterfall-in-a-bar I had seen all day.
