Reasonable Priced Meals !!

A night out with family and friends. Meal prices are very reasonable, children's meals $10. Very affordable. Not many Gluten Free options to choose from. Friday's and Saturday's are very loud inside as a band plays. But, if you go during the week, it is nice and quiet and you can enjoy your... read more

A group of us came here for lunch and there was not one speck left on anyone's plates. A great meal was had by all. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place, great atmosphere, food and location. My group of friends always have a meal here when we get together every three months. Generous portions and good flavours. Sometimes gets a bit noisy if there is a big group celebrating a special occasion, but generally it is good even then as everyone seems to be having a great time.

Just a short walk from the caravan park. Friendly bar with seats outside. Didn't eat there, so can't comment on that, but would go again.
