Good Pizza and Bakery goods

We got a couple of take away pizzas from here as not too many options in Swansea in August! Pizza was good - they have a huge pizza fire oven. Friendly place with people chatting to us while we waited. In the morning we returned to the Bakery for coffee and pastries which were pretty good.

Over rated and probably charges a touch too much for the quality of the museum. Hoever, still a cheap and affordable attraction, but cheaply put together and much of the signage is falling apart. That being said, seeing the bark mill still operating and learning about the tanning process and bark collection was interesting and is unique to the area.

We enjoyed the 2 for $25 pizza deal as well for lunch. The pizzas were wood fired and very good. We went back again for dinner and I agree the meals were a little pricey for pub food but the servings were big and they allowed our 14 year old a kids meal so they were more than fair in... More

THE place for dinner in winter - most of the other places were closed. Classic pub meals - plenty of it and the surprise was how well all was cooked and the freshness of the seafood. A whole flounder was melt in your mouth and the seafood supreme was exactly that with hot and cold inclusions. Great pub and grub!

Great service, very friendly folks with a open fire. I ordered the surf and turf, meal was good but not great. My son ordered pizza which was really good and the best value as it was 2 pizzas for $25 on Tuesday's.

Stopped here for a hot pie to warm us up on an incredibly cold winters day heading back from holidays in Bicheno. Service was a bit slow and at first glance the place looked a bit pricey but we decided on a couple of Steak, Bacon and cheese pies and some other items. Wow!, we were extremely impressed by the...

Cheeky husband & I had a most enjoyable dinner, sadly cut short by an acute case of man-flu. We were seated near a gorgeous fire, served by friendly staff, with generous serves of excellent food. His surf & turf was a juicy steak with excellent grilling & flavour and tasty seafood. My seafood platter was unfortunately more than I could... More
