Had lunch in the front bar one Sunday arvo. Standard country pub set-up. Meals were nice, I had the chicken and haloumi salad, love KI haloumi! Chicken was nice, a little more wouldn't have gone astray. Partner had kangaroo, it was cooked well. All up a decent pub meal.

Beautiful old building, nice basic interior, not to modern, nice meals, good value for money, tap beers were cheaper than other pubs in kangaroo island. Only let down was a rather strait faced unfriendly waitress, but all in all a nice venue

We booked for 7, and arrived a little early... our table was ready though, despite it being quite busy. We all ordered fairly simple, just a schnitzel after a big day out fishing.... what we didn't expect from there was the wait of well over an hour. We started getting concerned when the big party was having their plates cleared... More

Treated a friend to dinner and we each enjoyed the Tuesday night special of schnitzel. We also ordered two extra bread rolls for our table. Always remember to make a prior booking because the bistro does get busy for the snitty special night. Things didn't get off to a good start with the serving waitress, who is rude. We line... More

We went there for lunch and had two salads, 1 Thai prawn salad and 1 Chicken and Haloumi salad, both were the perfect size, tasty and good value for money and FRESH. I would recommend this place to everyone, especially over their main competitor Aurora Ozone.

This is a very nice pub which serves nice food at a very reasonable price. The dining room is spacious but you also have front bar dining available. The sports bar has gaming and Tab plus Keno if you fancy a punt and if you like 8 Ball, the cues are well kept and the table runs true ($2 for... More

Ex Islanders hoping to enjoy a night out in a familiar pub (with KI local family) Despite the lack lustre service of 2 of the bar staff ( who clearly don't enjoy working in hospitality) we had a good night out. Food was great ... Which made up for rude service in the front bar!!! great way to promote the... More
