We enjoyed our dinner at this hotel - my creamy garlic prawns were beautifully presented and very generous entree serving. And we had the first of those big glasses of wine - but not the last! Planning to return on out next trip south - next time with friends.

Spent a relaxing Saturday at the Pub and enjoyed a few beers and had a few bets also topped of with an enjoyable lunch ( chicken schnitzel with salad ) this was done a little differently with a more thicker crumbs which mate it very nice. The young lass that was working was friendly and talkative which made the day... More

We visited this hotel for lunch - they have a specials board. We had crumbed snapper which was excellent with chips and salad. Also included in the price is a schooner of beer or a glass of wine/soft drink - all for the price of $15,50

Lovely place and very family friendly but don't think I would go back. Very poor service. No mashed potatoes on steak night, other orders were wrong and food was generally disappointing. Also very basic menu but this would be okay if the food was of better quality.

I had a narvellous meal of grilled snapper - table by the fire - very pleasant atmosphere. Only drawback was my choice of wine - the Cape Schank Pinot Grigio was not up to it 9 perhaps they should try and get the Houghtons Small Batch 2015 Pinot Grigio - it is superb). So apart from my poor choice of... More

Great pub food in a beautiful location. They had the fires on and it was a nice quite night. Service was good, I had fish and chips and couldn't complain except the chips had too much salt.

Authentic locals pub. Nothing fancy run by locals for locals which is part of its charm. Very family friendly. Honest unpretentious meals. Parma was very good. Restaurant staff friendly - especially nice to see the chef pop out and apologize for running out of the potato rosti.

Food is ok .... but our night out was spoilt by a big boofhead who seemed to be trying to pick a fight or start one. HE is a dark haired larger gent.
