We had the beef and Guinness pie, peas and mash, and it was huge, couldn't eat it all. The meals were beautiful, the salt and pepper calamari was the best I've had, just melted in your mouth. The atmosphere is very friendly and cheerful.

The looks are deceiving from the Main Street view but entrance from the side street is different. Lovely atmosphere, and different sitting areas. Food was lovely. Thank you! J&S Vic

The atmosphere is always good with a great mix of locals, tourists and working backpackers. The meals are tasty and generous and the dining room relaxed and uncrowded. Always a pleasure to revisit
