“New Owners make vast improvements”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The new Owners of this establishment have made great improvements, with the hugely experienced team behind them and many years of restaurant service as well. They have bought on Derek the Chef, TV3, Gone Fishin, Swashbucklers, Jambalaya (Manly) and many others as a consultant to write and improve the menu and staff. Great seafood and steaks. We had Fish n Chips, Huge Prawn entrée and awesome seafood chowder. and Steak Bernaise. Will be back again when next passing. Good friendly staff out front as well and a clean restaurant without too much clutter. Kids enjoyed Burger and Hot dogs

“Good quality food, great service.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We stumbled across this pub & lingered for a few pints of Kronenbourg, chatting to the new owner. Very friendly & welcoming so we decided to stay for an early dinner. We shared calamari starter and then OH had the tuna steak & I had the Captains platter….all the food was very good, tasty & well presented.

“VERY DISAPPOINTING!!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

The food here is appalling. We ordered 3 steak menus and lamb shanks. None of the steaks were cooked the right way. The Medium well done was red as eff and bleeding like no tomorrow. The shanks were chewy and dry. And all meals were luke warm - definitely NOT hot off the stove!! We should've went to the buffet restaurant around the corner. Waste of money and time. Such a shame because the staff were so nice and friendly. Would never return. :-(

“Good pub meal”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Enjoyed our food here - especially the salt and pepper squid. Good selection of choices. It was a cold night and fairly empty - could have turned the heat up a bit. Service is pleasant but a little distracted, talking to friends I think. A reliable place for a good meal in a pub setting. Food better than average for this style of place.
