Had the barramundi Wednesday special for 15 bucks. Can't go wrong with this, was tasty and really good value. This is not 5 star, but typical fare and service from a large Queensland open air pub. Wine selection at the bar was quite good.

It was super busy at 7pm on a Tuesday night. You order at the bar - standard bistro fare ($20-$28 meals). It took an hour for us to get the food and it was just average but it was hot. Staff were very good, drinks were fine. It is really busy and the staff run all night so we were... More

The pork ribs were described by my wife as sublime. The seafood curry was also exceptional. Friendly crowd and the live acoustic music on two successive nights was a treat.

The food standard was excellent with a good range available. The staff were very good and prompt with their service. The prices were very reasonable. I will come back to eat here when I am next in town.

Visited the courthouse for tea, the chilli cheese bread is awesome as was my steak. The meals came rather quickly. The local ginger cat is also very friendly !
