Great Food

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.

We enjoyed a good meal at the RSL. the Interior of the place is very interesting as you can see along the wall all the photos of the people who have given their lives in the wars,. For all the gamblers, guess what, there are no poker machines in Norfolk Isle. The food selection is goood.

Dropped into the club for a quick family meal. My wife & I both had a curry, which was excellent, and the kids had fish & chips which they loved. Service was pretty quick and all-round the value was great. Nothing to complain about. Apparently they often have local musicians playing here too so is good for more than just... More

I had a dinner there and it was okay. It would be fine to go there if you wanted to attend the raffles on a Friday night. It has a very pedestrian type of atmosphere but the people are friendly.

Just an ordinary pub really - Limited Beers on tap. Very nice sitting out on the rear deck in the afternoon however. We went back there for dinner; had pork rolls - quite mediocre. Price was maybe a little high, but not too bad. Seems a very friendly place :)
