As it was a lovely evening we opted to sit outside, our enjoyment was spoiled by smokers, I can't be alone in my dislike of sharing their smoke, especially as I'm asthmatic, we changed seats twice to move away from smokers. Not the restaurants fault but maybe have separate areas. Our food, when we got it was very good, the... More

Staff were very highly rated. Very polite and constantly made sure we were happy and our water was filled up! How ever my burger wasn't great, was quite plain and rare. But this being said my partners sweet and sour pork was very tasty as well as the pizza and fries my son had. Coffee also very good, and not... More

Its not often a restaurant advises you to pre-order drinks to get them "in the system" during happy hour, at much lower prices even if you drink them after the happy hour is gone!

The food and service at this pub was incredible. The toilet was an awesome experience, with paraphenalia covering the walls.

Let's just say the food is OK and NOTHING to write to The Donald about!!! The ONLY good thing was the brilliant service rendered by Waiter, Dan...a true... Super STAR!!! The prices are way too HIGH and....In addition got ripped of an additional 20% being a Public holiday. STAY AWAY, m8. Overall--4/10

Tables both inside and outside. The lamb pizza was outstanding with great flavor. The chicken wrap with fries, slaw, and greens was good and plentiful. Service was good.

We stopped in a coffee and some toast. The coffee was burnt and the chai latte was much too sweet. Toast was fine but you're in trouble if you stuff up toast!

We went here for lunch and it wasn't enjoyable, we had the seafood chowder which was okay. However we also had the fish and chips, the fish was basically just two big bits of batter with very little fish inside.

After the excitement of landing on a Glacier from a helicopter we enjoyed a great lunch at The Landing on our return. The warm lamb salad was cooked to perfection and the cold beer was a great accompaniment. Returned in the evening for dinner and the burger was equally good. Friendly service too"
