Decent family lunch. Most plates were cleared. About the only let-down I tasted was my partner's calamari which was very chewy & really not up to scratch. Friendly service, nice room, good menu.

We stopped in for dinner and could see that it was popular with a lot of families in the area. Our server was friendly and attentive to our needs. Food was good although the seafood pie could have used more seafood and less mashed potatoes....More

Recent refurbishment and rejuvenation means this is a very attractive spot . Nice bar, spacious restaurant but not one big room. Food tasty nice and wholesome but not fancy or Michelin star. Lots of parking.

This place use to be fantastic but what's being served up these days is cheap and frozen. Not only that, you could be waiting an hour for food.
