“Poor Service Bad Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Overpriced badly cooked food.
Staff advised about the food but seemed unconcerned and unapologetic.
Steak at $30 not nice and fish at $27 had no batter.
Absolute rip off!
We have eaten there before and usually it is OK
Unlikely to ever return unless desperate.

“Christmas Lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Expensive, barely edible- sorry, won't be coming back. Best food and service is at The Kiosk just across the road on the beach, much cheaper too.

“Typical seaside village pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

As a typical seaside village pub this place met expectations. Just make sure they aren't too high! All the usual suspects on the menu, schnitzel, steak, fish, chicken etc and an OK salad and vegie bar. It was better than passable and not too badly priced given there is no competition in town.
