A well run pub situated in lovely countryside. The views from the rear bar are impressive. Food is excellent particularly the home made pies and hand cut chips.

Short visit after a visit to the infamous Gaddings Dam. Friendly welcome, beer well kept, and a good playground for the kids. Can't fault the place. Busy for a Friday lunch. Bowls for dogs outside with plenty of cover. Recommended.
