Good spot

The RSL is a good watering hole, visitors and vets alike are most welcome, go in and make your self known. The food is good And they have takeaway liquor.

The RSL has a very limited menu, and everything on there is just so damned delicious that you can't help but going back again and again to try all of the dishes they offer. The seafood basket is one of the most exciting things on the menu, coming in a half serve and a full serve (the full serve is... More

Food was largely as expected from an RSL bistro, with one major beneficial component. We were on the island when there were a number of formal holidays, and not all restaurants/cafes were open...this being the downtime for the locals to also have their holidays. Fish and chips were excellent, and at particularly good value. We went there twice, because we... More

Went as a small group and pre-ordered the roast which was supposed to be beef and yorkshire pudding. We were served roast lamb and mint sauce. The serves were small and, as the meal was served luke warm, we ended up with cold lamb which was not very appertising.

We enjoyed our evening on Friday night. Impromptu raffles karaoke etc whilst we did not eat here the atmosphere was great. We had a lot of fun dancing to the local lads singing along to the karaoke machine like they were a real band. The food that came out appeared to look appetising. Sat night was flat appears Friday night... More

This is real RSL Club, plenty of memorabilia to look at, not taken over by glitzy poker machines. Love the atmosphere with plenty to look at and read while waiting for a meal. Simple bistro meals, good size, quality and value. Our 13th holiday on Norfolk and we usually manage at least one meal at the RSL, I can't recall... More
