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...

Wow - yawn indeed! Lucky for us most of our customers empathise with how busy it is this time of the year, with everywhere in town bursting at the seams, & are happy to relax in air-conditioned comfort - But suppose you can't please everyone. More
