We ordered pan fried fish. The price was $25 per person. We were expecting big fish fillets and an extremely nice meal and we were very disappointed. The fillets were minimal and would hardly feed a cat. They were also overlooked. This meal should have been $12-15 not $25 - very overpriced and average. We paid $10 for the same... More

Called in for afternoon drink and stayed for dinner. The young lady on duty [ Sarah I think] was so friendly and personable. We told her she was worth more money and she agreed. The food was well presented and quite delicious. All of the group enjoyed their meal.

We had a special day on the Sunday we arrived. It was Dennis and Mama's Birthday. The Sunday lunch is a bbq, you choose your steak and sausages, write on your ticket how you like your steak cooked and take it out to the chef. Once cooked, it gets returned to you at your table and you go up for... More

Had a lovely meal for a good price - plenty of variety - and enjoyed the entertainment of a singer/guitarist.

I have no criticism to make following our visit, during which we only sat for a while and enjoyed a drink on our way home after dinner. The bistro and bar were typical of what one might expect, but my attention was caught by the Honour Roll of servicemen from Norfolk Island who had volunteered and fought in various wars.... More

When we arrived, we wanted to go somewhere casual, and have dinner and decided on the RSL club. It was clean and friendly and the food was very nice. Reasonable prices too.

A reasonable meal for those on a budget. The physical layout does its best despite the shed like appearance of the building.

You have to try the Thai Beef salad. Good variety on the club kitchen menu. Tables are set lovely with table cloths. If you go on a Friday night, there is always some sort of live music and also the club raffles.
