We always eat here at least twice each yearly visit. We always enjoy the food and harbourside atmosphere. A change in the menu is, however, LONG overdue!

My friend and I wandered in here because it was close to the Hector quay which we'd just visited, and we were getting pretty hungry. If I recall, the menu is posted at the door.
The place was packed, the outside patio full, so we were in a little aisle at the side. It was quite noisy with the crowd. I had the fish; my friend had a burger. All was good. Portions were pretty big but not excessive as in some places. We were stuffed but allowed the waitress to talk us into dessert (not hard). The strawberry cheesecake was lovely. The waitress was very friendly and joked around with us, as we were already being a bit silly. She took time -- and they were all very busy -- to take our picture, twice: once at the table and once with the inflatable pirate near the door (whose name, I think, was Earl). We enjoyed our supper and the price was not too bad. I would eat here again.

The ambiance in this restaurant is lovely - very authentic maritime feel. Its location is fantastic - you couldn't ask for better views. The beer choices on the menu were plentiful, and the food was average, with generous portions of french fries which made the kids happy, but in spite of the large number of staff the slow service was surprising...we put it down to them being very busy, however it could have been much better with more attentive service and some more creativity in the food presentation. Having said that if you love fish this is the place to eat - there are lots of choices and the servings are generous. The location and setting make it worth while.

We arrived at this restaurant this evening. Notice at entrance said to seat yourselves, so we duly sat at a table and studied the menu, chose what drinks and food we would like. Various waitresses came and went in the area, bringing food, clearing tables, etc. They glanced at us occasionally but no-one said a word to us. After being totally ignored for 20 minutes we got up and left. Had a good meal and quick service at the Press Room Pub.

Lots of fish on the menu of course and oh so good! Even the burgers were great. You can sit inside or out on the enclosed deck overseeing the harbour. The deck is screened in with zippered clear plastic panels for inclement weather. Very fast service! We were very impressed. It is a bit pricey but not so much that it turned us away. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Enjoy!
