Good Value Pub

Ate here for dinner one night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Menu was extensive and included all the usual pub favourites, plus extra seafood. Food was good - nothing spectacular but solid pub good at reasonable prices. We would definitely eat here again.

Lovely meal and great friendly service. Would recommend. A tad busy during school holidays. Bookings essential. As you may wait awhile for meals especially if you have children who are hungry. 9/10

We didn't book and the place was packed but managed to find a table. The staff were really under the pump but they handled it really well. Very friendly.

We ate in here after the motor hotel, obviously not as nice a location but much nicer pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food was nice, the price of the drinks area but higher than the Motor hotel though. Goods place to go for good honest pub food.

We ate here on two seperate nights, once when first arriving on our holiday and the a week later the night before we left. Food came out so quickly we timed it at 11 minutes after reading the last review! The portions were massive and the quality is better then you would expect for the price that you pay. It... More

Ate here several evening meals with our Daughter, son in law and friends. Meals were freshly cooked and prices were reasonable. Drinks available at pub prices. The tavern was not overly busy when we ate there so service was reasonably fast.

The Gilgai is a bit of an odd looking place from the outside and doesnt look to inviting but if you open the door you will be surprised; nice decor and a pool table with really decent pub food Not as ideally situated as its competition over the road but it really beats the motor hotel for food quality; service...
