Great family restaurant

Good family restaurant, with generous sized meals. Great for little kids and has a very nice garden area with plenty of shade for the summer

The menu at this restaurant is a little pricey for the basic steak chip and salad, but the "Flintstone" special they have just run was amazing. A steak worth paying for. One of the best steaks we have had for a long time. Compliments to the Chef for cooking our steak to our requirements.

this restaurant is within a bar, but it is set out in such a way that gives a lovely environment. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We were surprised to find that even though we had a reservation there was to be a three quarter of an hour wait until we would be seated. As we had traveled across from... More

This is a pub with friendly service and great food. The menu is hugely varied and caters to whatever you feel like on the day - seafood, steaks, ribs, salads, pizza. I had the ribs. They came with great fries and a salad. The ribs were amazing and the portion size generous. There is an outside bar where you can... More

This is a popular pub and came recommended by our homestay hosts. Husband had fish which was very good and I had pot pie which could have been so much better but far too much salt had been added. Portions are very generous indeed. We chose from the lighter bites part of the menu and still had plenty. Be careful... More

Went there on Easter Sunday - when it appeared everything else was closed. Very friendly, attentive staff - nice decor. The food was delicious - typical Pub-type menu but catered for kids as well. Sadly not a night for sitting outside in their wonderful courtyard but definitely worth a visit.

Great pub in the summer, lots of outdoor seating in the heart of urban Taradale. Standard barfood, chips etc and standard service, could be more authentically friendly and warm (so is lacking that). Nice for group drinks and after work drinks. Huge TVs inside...dislike that but in the summer the outside is nice

we enjoyed a night off from cooking, haven't been here for a long time. Found the menu varied and easy to peruse, my husband's steak was perfect.
