What a wonderful visit we had at Aussie Bobs café, an amazing old man full of stories about his adventures and good times with entertainers like Rolf Harris and Garry Glitter. The Restaurant is beautiful and my goodness what a lovely playground he has built for all the little kiddies. Cant wait to return to see Bobby again, I promise... More

Thank you for the five star review. However I am a little confused as I believe Rolf Harris lived in England for the most part of his life & as for Gary Glitter I have never met him in person - either of them actually. Regards Bob More

Stopped in for takeaway and had a beer. Plenty of choices and the portions were good sized. When everything else is closed and you are hungry it works.

We stay here for a afternoon and have the lunch special, unfortunately we want the Fish & Chip it's sold out, we did try some other things. The potion is good and value for money, the staff is nice and good service. We enjoy the time to stay here :)
