Good big pub meals, cooked well. Tasty and filling. Great value especially for a family. Cheap soft drinks. Mostly friendly & helpful staff. Plenty of room and very quick service, perfect when starving!

The food wasn't the greatest, it was eatable.. I've had better pub food before. For the money you spend here, you might as well go to a restaurant and pay that little more for better quality.

Ate here twice. Food is good and reasonable prices, bar staff were very friendly but the man running the kitchen counter had a sour attitude. Lots of families and workers eating and drinking here.

My family had lunch here today after arriving in Thredbo yesterday. My 3 young children shared 2 x children's meals and bowl of chips which was all well portioned. The chicken strips were genuine chicken breast pieces that had been cut into strips which is a refreshing thing to see, when so many other places serving up those nasty brown... More

Great service and a little cheaper than some of the other restaurants. Food came out in half an hour - but only as 1 meal was a well done steak. Child friendly and very relaxed . We will be back before we leave

Expensive food for a bistro and not very tasty. Very garlicky cauliflower soup and hamburger meat tasted horrible.

Food was simple and fine - a bit fried up but it is a pub and the food is cheap. The atmosphere is friendly and sporty.

Always a bit of atmosphere here or someone to have a chat with or just relax with friends. Ok menu selection and occasional specials. Fairly priced, good size serves, tasty and value for money. Efficient service.

We visited twice during our stay and staff were very friendly and suggested happy hour specials. We had a beautiful $20 roast on Sunday night which include a beer, wine or soft drink and was a big portion! Pool tables, darts and sports in the tv. Great atmosphere for a unwind after a hike.
