I had the steak dinner deal which was a bargain - rump steak with your choice of sauce, chips or mash, salad or veggies, with a drink of your choice for $15. It hit the spot and the service was friendly. Don't bother with the cocktails though. I had a margarita and it was awful. Note to owners - table... More

$15 for a Chicken Snitty and a drink. They're made fresh onsite. So no frozen crap from Coles or Woolies. Perfect with double mushroom sauce, chips and salad. Come here all the time to eat with mates now. Good selection on the new menu too.

I have dined here twice so far on this trip and have been quite impressed. Excellent value for money with $15 meals at lunch and dinner, including a beer, wine, cider or soft drink. The meals are standard pub fare but good sized, reasonable quality and freshness. It's a very busy place and the staff are run off their feet,... More

Went here with an Italian girl and had a pizza. I loved it but also the Italian girl said it was great! Then went on to have a great night with a live band. Amazing atmosphere and lots of friendly people. I totally recommend this place!!!!!

Fantastic food during the day and then an even better place for a night out. Has all the things a great restaurant needs while also providing a bunch of great music and fun at night.

We went here for late afternoon food. We were in between service times and the meal my husband wanted was on a menu that wasn't to start for another 10 minutes. That was fine, we just ordered a beer and waited to order both of our meals at the same time. My meal came fairly promptly, my husband's took a... More
