“Awesome Value on 2-1 Shopper Dockets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Had a good pub steak here on the Coles buy one, get one free dockets. The food is of a good pub standard. Its not a 5 star restaurant. ... but you can't go wrong with 2 cooked to your liking 300g porterhouse steaks, with chios, veg etc for $24....

The pub atmosphere is pretty cruisy too and has a good sports pub feel with tv showing foxtel in each booth.

“great parma and lamb shank pie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Great mexican parma and my husband raved about the lamb shank pie, great position able to watch the tassie ferry leave when sitting outside. They have cider on tap too. We tend to pop in regularly can be busy, friendly staff. BIt like an 'english style' pub but more tv's.

“Really Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Dont be deceived by the appearance of The Local. The food is excellent and reasonable. I opted for the Lamb Shank Pie which was awesome, others had a burger which was so large it amazed me that one person could eat it all. Then there was a chicken tgopped with cheese dish, again massive and enjoyed by two of our friends.
Shame that the owners (who I understand have another place within a few 100 yards) dont invest a little more in making this place more attractive. You really could walk by without giving it a second glance.

Tv showing sport, pool table etc, and I understand some themed nights are also on offer.
