Pub grub with a delicious twist

Pros - Wide range of food. Big portions. Value for money. Large eating area. Family friendly. Play area for kids. Decent location. Accessible. Friendly staff Cons - No EFTPOS for a week. Quite noisy and busy at times.

Off to the point where a putrid smell was coming from them. The staff didn't seem to overly care and no appearance from... More

We stayed for dinner following a family Wake. The kitchen was busy but our meals didn't take too long. The vegetables with my meal were only just warm but the lamb shanks were beautiful and melt in the mouth tender.

We ate here both nights we stayed. The 2nd to give them a chance after day 1. Most food choices on the menu were not available - both nights. I am not sure if they have heard of supermarkets to get prawns, sundried tomatoes etc!
