About 40 people arrived on the Fri nite before the wedding. Place was full but staff very accommodating and meals excellent. A great location and the outside dining excellent for this time of the year.

I spoke to the locals, and this place is a must do in Swansea. We ate dinner here one night and then had breakfast at the adjoining bakery cafe the next morning. The meal sizes were really big, great value for money. And the pub had an great cosy atmosphere. If you are ever in Swansea then definitely put this... More

Had their pizza for dinner, not bad but nothing special for the price. Staff were friendly and helpful. Tried their cooked breakfast the next morning and it wasn't bad but nothing too exciting. Again staff were the best part.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Excellent quality food. So great to get a nice tender, juicy steak just the way it was ordered. Very impressed. Slightly higher prices than we're used to in Queensland, but worth it for the quality, serving size and presentation of the meal. Never got the time to check out their bakery or anything else, unfortunately.

At that stage in our trip we were over eggs and bacon, so wanted to switch it up. Partner had a croissant, which he regretted, it wasn't crisp or pastry like at all, more like a rubbery mess. But, still edible I had a quiche, egg mixture was great, just short of a rave, or perhaps it was the pastry... More

Pizza for dinner was yummy and the staff were extremely friendly. We felt comfortable there with our young family. Breakfast was yummy and open early so we could hit the road

A useful roadside stop with the usual selection of bakehouse goods, expected of the new training schemes providing look alike bakers all over the land

We visited on a very busy night and were thinking we would have to go elsewhere but the staff were amazing & got us sorted in no time. The seafood platter entree was a highlight & the main meals were substantial & very well cooked. The staff service was way above what we expected from a family tavern.

We were able to sit outside for dinner without a booking. The food was good which was a relief because the menu is expensive.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch. Pizza's were so good and the device was quick and friendly. The only thing missing was a view of the areas beaches. Worth visiting again.
