Every time I have eaten here there have been long wait times to have yourr order taken initially and then even longer wait... More

Portions are almost too big here.We shared starters most nights and had room then for dinner. The fish of the day is always great, and if the seafood platter is on the specials board, make sure you order it, it's enough for two with a couple of side order. Very busy at the weekends, and not a great 'pub' atmosphere,... More

A great place for a casual family meal. The fish and chips are to die for down to the presentation. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Service was efficient and friendly and there was a great buzz in the place.

Big and good portions, right and tasty beef, spaghetti allay marinara with crabs, mussels, big prawns, salmon in white souse and parmigiana- best of the pub, but not for the sportive figure. Don't go to the restaurant above, it would be great Disappointment.

Very good and too plentiful food, cheaper (and better) than the Gulfstream restaurant, also in the hotel. My husband and I shared the seafood platter one night, and couldn't get through it. It was wonderful however! My number one restaurant (out of two!) in Inchydoney!
