I've been here three times for dinner and had a great experience each time - delicious food, great prices, friendly, prompt service and nice atmosphere. Looking forward to another visit.

Being regulars to the Inn, it was our choice to dine there with visiting family. We were disappointed that after a lovely main course, the service became quite unfriendly when we ordered a pot of water for a cup of tea. The staff are usually...More

Ate lunch here with the hubby last week. Got a table without a booking (although lucky I think). It was Friday and busy. Quick and friendly service. Lots of options for $10 or $15. Food came out quickly, very nice. Would stop again!

We had a great meal. There is a cheaper menu($12 approx) and a dearer one. The service was good and they even had a colouring sheet to keep the kids happy.
