Great Pub meal at a good price

A friendly pub for a great meal, right in the main street. The service is great, and the food is just want is needed after a long drive.

The food is really good. The portions are massive and has really good service. The view from the place looks amazing as you sit out and have tea or dinner! Great vibe to the place.

Fab Meals and great quantity. The garlic loaf is more than enough for 4 people let alone 2. The steak is awesome and the pizzas were amazing. Would come again and again as the food and service is fantastic. You can also sit outside and have a smoke under the heaters and watch the main road

Lovely location,we sat outside with the heaters and it was toasty! The menu choice was very good with all bases covered. The food arrived quickly and was HUGE...but don't fear it was style and substance! We attended for breakfast the following day and was very impressed again. Very reasonably priced,lovely staff and great food!

This is one of the few places open early on a Sunday morning for coffee or breakfast. The prices are reasonable and the service as well.

We went on a very busy night when the All Blacks were playing rugby - despite this the staff were great and didn't rush us at all. The food was really good and the portions were very generous! Good wine and generally good value.
