On a local recommendation we called in for dinner and chose to eat in the bar. So glad we did as it was Friday night and the atmosphere was great as was the service. Food was excellent - fresh, tasty and huge portions.

We hadn't booked for dinner and it was full because everyone was watching the big screen rugby. "What about a bar menu?" we asked. "Oh yes, you can sit at a side table."

Stayed at Gables Motor Lodge next door so we choose this pub for a drink as we could walk. Small simple pub with fireplace, sport on tv, a few pokies and a restaurant. Recommended especially if you are staying at Gables Motor Lodge.

Recreation hotel isn't where you want to have your honeymoon, isn't where you want to have a business retreat- it is the place where you can crash after a long drive and get a decent night's sleep. When we pulled in my heart sank- i thought the place would be noisy, the rooms smokey. I was wrong. The room was...

Friendly bar for a drink and pub meal, had the pasta of the day which was maybe slightly rich for me but was tasty enough to enjoy...........the sort of dish the first half or so is really tasty but can get a little much toward the end. I have eaten in the restaurant out the back of the bar and...
