Love the roast

We went back twice for the roast dinner and had to stop ourselves going back a third time. Large meals full of yummy veggies, meat and gravey.

$28 for fish and chips! Ok if the fish was fresh fair enough. As for the burgers!!! I've had better from a frozen food section of the local supermarket back home. Go to the other end of the high street, there's much better places to choose from than this grotty pub.
