What a great (and huge) meal. Best value on Norfolk.... provided you have plenty of time to wait for it. The service is extremely slow... but, repeating, fantastic food. Five star rating except for slow speed.

We visited the RSL for the "Tuesday night carvery" only to find it wasn't available! There were just five people in the dining room - the club is going through something of a change, apparently. It is run down, aesthetically unappealing and the meals barely...More

Bar prices were excellent, AUD$5.00 Gin n tonics! The barman was charming and friendly. Food menu limited and meals received were adequate but not outstanding.

We went one evening for a meal. We were quite early but they had sold out of the specials and everything else looked quite expensive & nothing took our fancy. Staff weren't particularly welcoming and there was no atmosphere. We didn't stay.

This RSL has only a small selection on the menu. Meals were average with a very small salad or frozen vegetables, a lot of chips (thin sliced). Fish was good local trumpeter, chicken parmigiana was fresh and a medium size.

This is either very old, or for next year. No the RSL is not open on Christmas Day and the cafes that are open are very expensive. We self-catered and it was fine.

Don't know about the bistro, but I didn't think it would have any accommodation, as it is only an eatery.
