Finally a great pub on the Gold Coast! We heard the long standing venue was under new management so went down on a Sunday afternoon to check it out. Best roast we have had outside of the UK, cold beer, entertainment, great service. Great ambiance. A friendly pub vibe making you feel at home. Can't wait to go back!

Great Irish Pub on the Gold Coast. Excellent value with Scrumptious food, wide choice of drinks although I stayed with the champagne and Baileys and great entertainment. I'll be going back again soon. Definitely not waiting until next New Years Eve !!!

A group of about 7 of us stayed in 3 rooms. The staff were rude and the service in the bar is dismal at best. Would not stay here ever again. Upon arraigning to pay for the rooms when everybody arrived, a staff member spoke rudely and insinuated that we were trying to get out of paying, even though another... More

My husband and I, my son and his girlfriend AND my nephew stayed just the one night and had a great time at the bar before heading out for dinner in Surfers. What a fabulously friendly place and fantastic value for money. Parking on site at no extra charge and large family rooms very suitable to a family get together.

We were met by the manager with a handshake and told our trailer was no trouble at all. He could not have been anymore welcoming or helpful. A great value for money place to stay with take away mini convenience and bottle shop close and the hub of surfers within a short beach walk. Will certainly stay again when passing... More

I used to stay here all the time, but it changed management about 12months ago and I don't bother anymore. The food isn't as good, and the new managers are not great. They are more into having a drink with mates up at the bar (just around the corner from the front door) than looking after the people at the... More
