Our 14th visit to Norfolk Island and it is always great to visit a 'real' RSL Club, one with memorabilia and no poker machines. Much to read and look at around the walls plus a nice view from the deck area. Good quality meals and a large bar selection.

Enjoyed a lovely meal and reasonably priced. The night we were there there was an entertainer who was excellent. It was also interesting to read the displays on the walls.

Affordable dining with local produce, and a good menu choice, its within walking distance to most accommodation places so is worth going to while you're staying here. Its a good place for groups, probably not so much if you want a romantic night.

We dined at the RSL during Country Music festival, the live music was fantastic, the meal was fabulous & the atmosphere without poker machines clanging away was heaven.

The Chefs might change but you can always get a good feed here. The Manager Liz is a good sort and the bar Staff and very friendly. If there is fresh fish - the fish and chips are great and there's usually some good live music as well.
