Checked out Hotel menu on web, looked good, prices were reasonable. When we arrived at hotel for a meal the next day the prices on some items had changed and not just by a dollar or two up to $8 difference. This was not the real problem, although it was steep. It was the Managers attitude, his body language and the fact that he rolled his eyes as he walked away and didn't really care when we brought the issue to his attention. The menu had been changed the week before and they hadn't updated the web. Now if Management behave like this they shouldn't expect much more from there staff. The staff were great. They were very helpful and pleasant.

We are locals and have had many meals here over the last few years and to be fair some weren't great but lately they have been very good especially the Steaks. Seems like they have recently changed the pricing upwards in particular the Steaks. Only 2 options were a Porterhouse Volcano which is not to everyones taste and a Rib... More

Our family of 10 adults and 5 kids had a great meal and the kids love the place as they have a large playground which is fully fenced and great play equipment. The food is great also

Visited tonight and had the salt and pepper calamari, which was covered in way too much coating that resembled a southern fried chicken coating with way too much pepper. Chips were cold. Salads were floating in a bitter dressing. The two of us who had this were very disappointed. Our other friend had a chicken schnitzel which was undercooked -... More

this is a great place to get a tasty reasonable priced meal, there is a good play area for children, full bar at bar prices. Meals are served reasonably quick, they are cooked nicely, with basic presentation. We ate at this restaurant for the three nights we stayed in their accommodation, it was relaxing and nice to unwind after the... More

The bar staff were very polite and very professional. The venue was very clean and spacious, child friendly venue. Our adult main menus were really nice, tasty and filling. Unfortunately the children's meal that we ordered (pizza) was not edible, the base wasn't cooked and the cheese had a funky tang. It resembled something that had been bulk purchased and... More
