We visited for dinner on a week night (Wednesday). When we arrived there was a pub quiz going. We were invited to join in. It was a fun night. Dinner was tasty and filling and everyone was friendly and welcoming.

$40 was a phenomenal price to pay for a platter of deepfried titbits - straight out of a box eg samosa, prawn twists, chicken nuggets, spring rolls and mini hotdogs. 4 of each plus chips. Have bought a bigger platter at Treehouse for $20.

We were traveling with a club group and arranged for a buffet meal because it was close to our motel. The staff were very pleasant and hard working, but the food was standard buffet fare and quite average. However we had a pleasant evening there.

GrabOne voucher. A small dining area, off from a public bar (also small). Steak was well cooked but somewhat gristly (not a great cut of meat). Overall satisfying. Service was good (not interrupting, nor negligent). Dining area was clean and tidy. Two other couples in attendance. Friendly atmosphere.

Didn't eat but popped in for a beer on their karaoke night. Nice friendly staff. Locals were friendly and the Karaoke was all good. Decor was fine and the beer tasted good. All in all an OK place for a drink.

Gave Rig 66 a try as we had a grab one voucher. Bar/cafe was clean and had a cool style, obviously oil and rig based. The girl that served us was friendly and pleasant. The menu wasn't all that great option wise but good none the less. Quality of food was good. I had the chicken and cranberry Burger which... More
