Used to go regularly past couple of months been incredibly disappointing. Menu has decreased immensely and quality of food is dismal. Will avoid going back. Only positive thing is the kids room.

Tried the roast lamb, fabulous .. Even though the large dining area is closed the full menu seemed to be available from the bar area with inside and outside seating . Worth a visit. (We also tried a pudding desert, however , that tasted and looked like it was out of a plastic container ..couldn't recommend the desert )

Our first night in town and this looked like a good bet for dinner. Good food, fast service and one of us had the pie floater which looked (and apparently tasted) awesome.

Good place if you do not want to run around after you kids. Play area next to where you eat. Food typical pub but a good variety. Thia beef salard not up to any standard. Salt pepper squid not drained of excess oil before serving. Chicken schnitzel was ok. Shame good place but food lets it down.

I like places where I don't have to constantly be concerned about my kids, and this is one of those places. The kids zone is not much at all, but it is a section of the restaurant where they can go and I can chat in peace with my wife. The service was fine tonight, staff friendly. I did not... More

Great meals and every night they have a couple of specials which they add to the menu. Service is quick and meals are well size, fresh and taste delicious. If your looking for where the locals eat you have found it.
