Prince Alfred & Formosa Dining Room

I've stopped by for a few beers before but this was the first time I ate there - in fact, we ended up eating there twice in quick succession, once on Friday evening and again for Sunday lunch. Both experiences were much the same though.

The pub part is pretty cool but the formosa dining room lacks the character of the pub and feels distinctly tacked-on. The food was fairly tasty but distinctly overpriced and the service was a bit intermittent and required some prompting at times both to find missing side dishes and to get drinks.

It's OK but with so much more in the area I think I'll go elsewhere.
