We have visited this pub several times over he past few years. Each time we have looked forward to eating there because of the location and with expectations that the food may have improved. Unfortunately it has gone backwards rather than forwards. We ate there tonight with family. Fishemans basket was greasy, chips soft, grilled fish uncooked, long wait to order meal and drinks, not enough staff and staff on duty appeared inexperienced and poorly trained. We had a voucher which we presented when ordering our meal. We were advised that we could start a tab by leaving our credit card. We paid our bill and the discount on the voucher was not deducted. When queried even though the staff member remembered us she would not deduct it from our bill as we had already paid. Older bigger children were permitted to run in and out of the children's play area knocking a couple of little ones over in the process.. The whole area is very noisy. Best thing is the deck. Go here for a drink on the deck as long s you don't expect to pay pub prices.

honestly, this place has one of the best aspect views of melbourne - the food always continues to disappoint. The last time i was there, we just got a bowl of fries to go with our beers and even that was terrible. Some of the positives are that:
- drink specials are decent in the bar
- nice play equipment in the bistro if you have kids
- nice decor in the bistro and patio
I think for this venue, the food really just needs a great transformation, but if you dont care too much about it, head on down, grab a beer and eat your parma.

Nice place to have a casual relaxing meal or if you are a gambler visit the pokies room
they also have a lively front bar and a fabulous balcony where in the warmer weather you can watch the sun go down. Has set specials most week nights avoid Tuesday unless you have kids and early on Friday nights as lots of kids are catered for. Reasonably priced drinks. Seniors meals well catered for as well. Good value local.

Warm and welcoming atmosphere inside. Ordering their daily specials makes it cost effective. Delicious food.
