Good location on the main street Advertised a Bacon & Egg special for $9. Asked for double bacon and to be very very crispy, & for poached eggs instead of fried. Asked for grain or brown bread. - They said, sorry - they only supply white bread. Asked for margarine instead of butter, but not available. Asked for a trim... More

Smitty's is always great fun, wonderful bar staff and the food ain't too bad either. In the center of town and they have just changed the bar around to make more room inside. Great place to network with people, and a great place to meet up with mates.

Called in for a Beer and to watch the game, great easy place to relax with no stuffiness. Not a place you'd want to take the great aunt but for a few beers with your mates and close to the main street - excellent

The new decor catches your eye as soon as you walk in, a much better layout. The staff are much more friendlier than before. The food is greatly improved in size, quality and value for money. The most enjoyable night we have had there in a long time. Well done Smitty's.

Great friendly pub, good prices and a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Looks like they do a good trade with the locals but did not mind tourists dropping in.

In on a Friday afternoon for lunch. The Pub still employs the self-service paging technology, a relic from the past surely. The staff were very friendly and the food basic pub. The locals are friendly and won't bite much.

Had two stops in here, one for a wine and some pool, and once for some coffee when the power was cut and Smittys was one of the only places with hot coffee on offer - it was good too!

All be it that I was there early afternoon and the atmosphere wasn't what it would be at night but I could see how this place would be buzzing of a night time. We wanted a counter meal for lunch and the sports bar jumped out at us. The meals were cheap and the staff real friendly and made us... More

Friendly, welcoming and efficient staff. Very busy, busy two nights we visited but never had to wait long to be served. Walking distance to most motels/apartments.
