Good pub food

Unexpectedly good curry served in this pub. Plenty of space, quick service and very good and hot pub meals. It was a nice surprise to get such an interesting curry in this country pub.

Enjoyed a nice meal in the bistro. Steak was cooked to liking and salad bar fresh but not overly exciting. Nice to see chips in a basket not buried under meat. I will definitely come again.

Chose this hotel because it was near our accommodation. Thankful we did, staff couldn't have been more helpful if they tried. Thoroughly recommend this one for; value, great menu choices, service (with a smile), location and atmosphere. Great locale to catch up some old friends and share great times. Congratulations to the management and staff for making our stay magic.

Wow enjoyed the meal. The staff super friendly. Salad bar was second to none. You have to try the hot chocolate desert.

Good meals daily at good prices. Good stopover for lunch for travellers. Only around $12 with a salad and veggies bar, help yourself

We were greeted by a friendly staff member as soon as we entered. The food was really good and the service couldn't be faulted. They salad bar had plenty of variety and it was really good to see the kitchen staff (they delivered to the salad bar) all wearing hair nets. Would definitely go back there again

The restaurant is always busy - which is a good indication that it has good service and tasty, value for money meals. Atmosphere is laid back and relaxed and staff are friendly and helpful. Best to make a booking if its for a special occassion or you may have to wait for a table to get empty! Salad and vegie... More

Excellent food and service. The $10 lunch deals are absolutely perfect for my friends and I to go out as they provide such variety of dishes that are affordable. Definitely recommend for a great and filling lunch.
