I had a real laugh when I read the previous review of this tavern, as yes, it is a little rough around the edges. Unfortunately - or maybe it's fortunately - there's not much choice near Sapphire Beach unless you want to go into Coffs Harbour 9kms away, which I didn't. Anyway long story short, I ordered a 300 gram fillet steak medium rare and it turned out to be one of the best steaks I can remember having in a very long time (other than those I've cooked myself). The yokels ARE entertaining but don't let it put you off trying the food. Really good.

A short time ago this pub served disgraceful meals, but they have got rid of the last chef/cook as the food quality here is now fantastic. We, my family and I, have avoided this place for a number of years now, but through word of mouth, we have returned four times in the last month, and thoroughly enjoyed every meal.

We have grabbed three takeaway pizza deals each we rate well above any of the franchised pizza joints. (pizzas small $12-$16 and large $16-$22 each. Deals 3 large pizzas $38.50 - 2 large pizzas gb and bottle of drink $29.50 - 2 large $25.50)
And a dine experience that far exceeded the previous chef/cook, now don't forget this is a pub and you are not going to get a restaurant dine in experience, but the prices are competitive and with their 2 4 1 deals, it is great value. (check there website)

We prefer not to dine in due to the yokels puffing on their cigarettes at the front doors and outdoor dining areas. However if you pick an early dining time you should miss this experience. But we have seen the yokels fighting/arguing at different times, don't let this put you off, it's free unpaid entertainment.

The pub experience in Australia has changed over the last few years targeting families to attend, however this pub is one small step behind with kids play stuff. Yes it has a small room with a couple of toys and a flat screen TV, but it is a eat and run type of place for us.

They have an outdoor seating area, and currently on a Sunday, have a number of kids activities, however, this area is not weather proof and a lot of patrons sit out here to have their cigarettes.

Overall as a family eating place it is great value, the chips and salad have a crunch which is a good indicator.

The Green house Tavern is another great family experience in Coffs Harbour which has a better kids play area, but the food is on par with the Moonee Tavern
