Nice pub/restaurant and family friendly. Food was great especially so for the lamb shanks and death by chocolate desert. We shared all our meals by ordering 2 to 3 mains. Ordering of grilled meals, hearty meals and drinks are all at the separate counters

Present enough. The food came out fairly quickly, just a tad bland. My partner enjoyed it a little more than me but Very very noisy.

Had lasagne and steak. Massive portions had to wait a while. Nice pub. Play poker machines if you want.

It's pretty much just a pub; pool tables, pokies, darts, garden bar etc but the food is great, the serving sizes are HUGE and the prices are cheap! Seriously, unless you're starving to death get a mains between two or you'll never finish it. Happy...More
