Was the best. We were there in 2000 and I had the best salmon salad ever. Can't wait to come back again. Hope it's next year. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

Perfect place for Saturday night tea, with huge screens to watch the cricket. Food was great, white bait omelette was delicious and girlfriend ordered the naki burger and it was huge and tasty. Staff were attentive and really friendly, we will definitely come back.
