This is the place for simple food and a quiet dinner. My orange roughy fish was well cooked and served with delicious vegetables. My daughters lamb cutlets were a bit overdone. When we finished the meal our waitress cleared the table and we sat waiting for the bill which never arrived. Eventually I asked another waitress where to pay and... More

... to the 80s, and you will know what to expect. Steak, chicken or fish with salad, fries, potato or steamed veges. Seafood cocktails. It's good honest food with no pretensions, and the service was friendly. Our night was rather spoiled by the orange roughy fillets being served cool and undercooked. By the time we could get the (sole) waitress's... More

Despite the "truck driver" look from outside, the bar and restaurant is a real gem. We enjoyed a great meal, had decent wine and the young last serving was extremely good. Don't miss it !

Quaint, regional fare served, but the best part is the bar tender. Extremely friendly and very knowledgable re: single malt Scotch, great selection of some of my favourites which was a very pleasant surprise for a small town.

A birthday party arranged for 40, The dining room had been dressed with beautiful yellow roses, balloons and black tablecloths, looked stunning. The little befores were imaginative and the staff circulated well. The buffet dinner to follow was excellent and plenty for everyone. All in all a splendid evening with little stress to organise. Thoroughly recommended. Thankyou, thankyou

The T-bone steak I ordered was juicy and medium; just the way I desired. The omelette we had came with very savoury fillings. The hot brownie with ice cream was one of the best I had eaten- the brownie was moist and creamy, and the vanilla ice cream complimented the cake perfectly. It had intrigued me who don't normally fancy... More

Changed our minds and headed here based on TA reviews, and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the meals fillet steak, lamb cutlets, and wedges) were cooked beautifully. All the other guests (the place filled very quickly) appeared to be enjoying themselves as well, and the other meals coming out looked just as good as ours.... More

Good service and meals came out promptly. Quite a good menu which should cater from most tastes and if you want you can have a drink in the bar while you wait for your meal.
